Crocheting has always been a thing in my family. I don’t remember myself, but my mom said that my Great Grandma Ulishney always had a crochet project in her hands while everyone visited every Sunday. I still have a afghan that she made me (I think for my First Holy Communion? Mom, is that right?) She taught my mom how to crochet and I have multiple blankets made by her hands. Including the plaid afghan I use every night on my bed!
I started a few things when I was younger, but all I really completed were coats for my Pound Puppy. I made a baby blanket for a co-worker once but needed multiple people to help me finish it in time! I finally made the commitment to finish a whole blanket last year. I remembered the basic skills and watched some videos on youtube for a refresher. It took a while, but I have two complete afghans! I made them for Tristan and Delaney. I think they turned out pretty well!
