I don't remember how old I was when I first learned to crochet, but I do know that two very patient ladies, Mom and Nana, were the ones who taught me. I don't do a lot of crocheting today, but every now and then I'll get the itch. It's a cozy little hobby - one that I thoroughly enjoy.
This afghan was made using Lion Brand's Wool-Ease. The colors are Fisherman, Avacado, and Seaspray. It was a nice yarn to work with and it's completely washer/dryer friendly. As you can see from the photo, frequent washing and drying is going to be important :).
