At first I was thinking that goal #2 was a big fat FAIL! I hadn't completed a crochet or knit pattern, so it basically was a fail. Early into the summer I started to knit a scarf. I got the pattern from Michael's for free (hey now!) and decided to give it a go. Now knitting a scarf in the middle of summer may seem like a crazy, wild, high on drugs, idea...but at the pace I was going, I might just have made it in time for the last light snow storm. I would knit here and there, and then stop. There was a while that I was going on pretty strong, I was knitting while watching episode after episode of How I Met Your Mother and eventually got finished with one skein. This is when I officially took a break (which I am still taking now). I don't really know how to join yarn in knitting, so I just...haven't. As I'm sitting, I'm staring at my unfinished scarf and a new skein of yarn, no where close to being combined into one.
I was ready to stuff all my yarn, knitting needles, and crochet hooks into my closet to collect dust. That is until I found a really cute heart crochet pattern online. It was such I a cute pattern I had to try it. (Here's the link if you know how to crochet) So I got out my crochet hook, some purple and white yarn, and went to crocheting. Purple and White are my school's colors. I can now officially say that I have completed ONE of my goals on my to-do list for this summer. Check out the finished project!
