Olympics and Crocheting

The Olympics are up and running. Unfortunately, I missed the starting ceremonies. I heard it was spectacular! My favorite events are diving, synchronized swimming, and gymnastics.
I was totally AMAZED two days ago when Jason Lezac outstandingly came over the French in the last 50 meters to WIN the gold for the USA in the 4 X 100 m relay. Fantsatic! even MORE great after what the french were saying.

My knitting/crocheting projects!

Closeup of Red Octopus Amigurumi
Above is a octopus I crocheted, really simple I made it in less than 4 hours. (Pretty good considering I leraned how to crochet about a week ago.)

Above is a piece of intarsia knitting. I am not 100% happy with this piece of work I don't think I have the circle shape perfect- YET. I made it (btw, its a peace sign) for one of my friends who is a long-haired, flower-wearing hippie. LOL

  5. thanks for stopping by my blog! i bought a lovely wooden crochet hook last year but haven't found anywhere to teach me :( where did you learn? love that little leggy creature!

  6. I learned to crochet from a booklet, but it wasn't very detailed, so I refined my crocheting online.
    There are many videos on you tube about crocheting, here is a good one demonstrating single crochet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tW8ui6wlYxY
