So the crochet bug caught me and caught me hard. I haven't been doing the typical blankets though. I will leave those to my sister. My mom saw what I was doing with the granny square blanket and told me if I could do that I could do hairpin lace crocheting.
My mom does a lot of it and so we bought the hooks and she gave me a blanket to work on and her pattern books. It took me a while to find the right tension as I worked. The thread is a lot harder to work with since it is so thin but I picked it up quickly and she has since given me another blanket to work on for her since she doesn't have the time to get it done. One more thing I can do now!
