Ambitions...

About 3 months ago I showed up to a local Stitch & Bitch meeting with a hook, a ball of yarn, and a dream. A wonderfully nice woman spent about 30 minutes patiently showing me how to start my first crochet row, and then to doublestitch. Since that day, I've been doublestitching like crazy... and I'm very close to finishing my first project ever, a scarf! (Don't worry, once I'm done there will be more then enough photos!)

With fall coming, I'll like to amp up my skills a bit and try something new. After much "ohhing & ahhing" over the adorable fingerless gloves I've seen on Etsy, I've found a pattern that seems simple enough to try.


The free pattern is available over at Creativeyarn... and she says that "maybe it's the best pattern for people who wants to start crocheting!".

Now I just need to figure out what all those stitches are... eep! Wish me luck!

Can't wait to see what yours will look like. These are very pretty.

That looks like the perfect beginner project: easy, quick and useful. Not to mention very pretty. Good choice! And I'll help with the stitches if you need it!
