The year 2020 began with high hopes of achieving our goals. Unfortunately, most of our hopes were dashed because of the COVID 19 pandemic. We had to go into quarantine to stop the spread of the contagious disease.
From an extroverts point of view, I had to find something interesting to do to break the monotony of daily routine. A friend of mine whom we share a great love for arts found a video on crocheting on YouTube. I was hesitant at first because I thought it might be expensive but to my surprise it was the total opposite. All you need is a ball of yarn, a crochet hook, a tape string needle, and scissors. We watched a couple of videos on how to do the art and also learnt some skills from our parents. There are four designs of crocheting; single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, half double crochet. Each design is gorgeous; I can’t say one is more difficult than the other because everyone knows what works for them, plus they each have their own challenges.
So far I’ve been able to crochet a school beanie for my brother, a headband, a pencil pouch and some Christmas gifts for family and friends. To say the least crocheting is a beautiful art and quite easy and can be done at any place. The ‘t’ in crochet is silent, for the sake of correct pronunciation. Crocheting has taught me patience, because I get impatient to see the end product, or when I mess up a whole row, I redo it all. But at the end of the day, I was always pleased with the results.
