For the First Time in 2 Years? 3 Years?

I used to crochet all the time when I was 10 until I was 12.  I loved to crochet.  I made my sister a load of crocheted food for her play kitchen.  I made a bunch of dishcloths.  But when I was 12, I started having wrist pain.  I had tendonitis.

Crocheting was one of the first things to go, followed by piano.  There was a time when I was able to do a bit of crocheting, but I had to stop again.  I have not been able to crochet for several years.

Well, I tried again yesterday.

It went fairly well.  I did some more today, and my wrists are sore.  But I am so excited to be crocheting again!  I hope if I take it slowly I can crochet more often. 

I started a dishcloth.  It is now about two thirds of the way finished.

I am so excited that God gave me the ability to do this again!


What it looked like last night

    1. Thank you! You know what, I feel just about the same way about knitting! Maybe that is because I never got past knitting plain scarves – just big rectangles. That does get kind of boring! I had progressed in my crocheting to be able to make all sorts of items, like play food, bags, etc.


  1. I’m so happy for you!! As you know I’ve been suffering the same problem; I still can’t crochet 😦
    I can knit though!! 🙂 I hope your wrists continue to heal and you are able to practice this lovely skill again!
    Much love, Amy
