Birdwatching, rock hunting, crochet/knitting .... I am new to blogging, so "aren't you lucky" to be my first audience! You will read about my challenges with finances, college as a grown-up, family, dreams, hobbies, and just plain Life in central North Carolina, USA.
Stressed over finances (lack of) and upcoming gift exchanges, I was reminded that I DO know how to make stuff. Found some quick crochet patterns... hats, lip balm cozies (sweet ones... I also found some designs that are, shall we say "not kid-friendly"!), scarves... and I reached into my yarn stash and found my crochet hooks... yes, I'm a "hooker" LOL... and made one lipbalm cozy and two hats and started on a matching scarf for one of the hats all in one afternoon... (ok. it's now 3am so it was longer than an afternoon, but I stopped for dinner and was partially distracted by a season of "The Practice").
So maybe Christmas will be ok after all.
(Still need a job... or at least a steady stream of income.... wonder how many hats I can make with two balls of yarn?)
