Wow a second post.

Whew. After a very crazy bath and bed time the LittleStar is finally asleep which means crochet and Star Trek for mommy! Woot. I have moved past graybeard and am working through some orange rounds and I have to say this orange is more red. I'm not entirely happy with the orange but I'm going to keep trudging through this (I am on round two of orange already) I do have to say it does brighten up the piece which was looking more like a baby blanket for a boy.

I would post a picture of my current progress but the screen on my galaxy s3 decided to stop working and I have to send it away to be fixed. So until then I'm back to my iPhone 3G. Let me just say yuck. I just cannot live with that camera. And to think I was on a blackberry perl before that. I would break out the SLR but its just too much hassle for a poorly lit photo (ok I am a snob when it comes to presentation) 

Ok off to soak up some hook time!

In the beginning...

In the beginning there was a girl and some yarn. This girl was very pregnant and needed to keep her feet up and so she decided to pick up her hooks and get to it. 

That's how the craziness started. The crochet craziness. My grandmother taught me once upon a long time ago.  It just seemed the logical thing to do to pass the time (I'm sorry I've been watching Star Trek: TOS.)  I've been posting my work on Ravelry and on Instagram and I've been getting better and better at it as I go. Through my travels I also found that I wanted to share my thoughts and experiences with certain patterns and yarns. I always do my research before using a new yarn or a new pattern and sometimes I luck out and find blog posts on the matter. 

So, I figured what the heck, let's give this blogging thing a go. Will I keep up with it? Probably not. But we can give it a go and see.  Starting the blog was probably the hardest part. Absolutely no domain names available. Darn Those Ends just seemed appropriate. It's my absolute least favorite of any project, and usually once I've darned them they get loose after a while and make beautiful pieces look absolutely dingy. So here's to the beginning. Cheers!
