My grandmother had a joke that one could crochet if they could count to 8. The pattern she was working with consisted of lots of 8's. She would get all mixed up with her counting, laugh and have to rip out her stitches. I have to laugh at myself. (I'm relearning to crochet) Mine consists of series of 1 and 2s!! I keep getting all mixed up and ripping them out too! My grandma was so right!
One nice thing about crocheting is that once you have it down you can sit in front of the TV and just relax. Which is what I want to do. For Christmas my husband and I bought a "together gift" and purchased a big screen TV. My daughter was so worried about her children coming over and knocking it over and it killing them. We knew right away we were going to need a good sturdy TV stand. So my husband went off looking at TV stands for flat screens. I gave him instructions to buy one that is medium colored wood.
Oh I thought I had the picture of it - well hopefully tomorrow I can post that picture. He did a really good job and I'm so pleased with it. (Wow, can you imagine sending your husband off to buy a piece of furniture for the livingroom? I can't believe I do that kind of stuff.) It is a really nice piece of furniture. And it's sturdy - even DD approved and will allow the grandkids to come over.
