Trading Blogs: Pumpkin Loves

Today we have the privilege of being a part of Trading Blogs by Serendipity and Spice. Steph, from Pumpkin Loves is guest posting here and we're guest posting over at her blog.

First off, I want to Thank Melissa from Serendipity and Spice for hosting V.2 of trading blogs guest posting party. 

My name is Steph, the hostess of  Pumpkin Loves, the blog for a little of everything. I am a public health nurse during the day and a derby girl at night as seen here , as well as trying to start an Etsy shop and make our house a home as seen here .  
Today I wanted to talk about crocheting. I know a lot of people look at that word and tense up. What? I don’t know how to do that, is that the one with one stick or two hooks? I can’t make that.. That is too hard. Well, all of your skepticism is WRONG! Any body can crochet. Crocheting is no longer for your grandma.
Rachel at  Maybe Matilda  has a wonderful tutorial series on crocheting as seen here , I am not going to reinvent the wheel, because she did an amazing job and I could not have done a better job.
I love crocheting and find it very relaxing. (If you didn’t know this, I am a very busy body and have to be doing something at all times). 

Crocheting is something I do while I watch my favorite programs on tv. I have been crocheting since I was about 19. I learned as a child, but had no interest. I have done many projects with different varieties of difficulty. Yes, this may be intimidating at first because you can’t get your tension right or keep a straight line, TRUST ME I know how you feel.

 My very first adult sized blanket is my favorite thing I have ever made. As you can see it is a trapezoid. Don't be intimidated, just go for it.  

I hope you try crocheting; I would love to see what you come up with.

Thanks again Kristin and Courtney for having me.

Thank you, Steph. We hope all our readers will head over to Steph's blog Pumkin Loves to see what we shared there.
