Tatting is fun!!

A week ago, while surfing YouTube I came across a video tutorial by OVW about tatting. I absolutely love her crochet tutorials and used to follow them often when I first started to crochet. So back to the video about this thing called tatting which I’ve never heard of before. In the video, she was demonstrating how to make a flower earring and when I saw the end product I fell in love (I know, a little dramatic, but true). How did I know nothing about this awesome thing?!? As it turns out, it’s not a novelty either – it has been around since the early 19th century.

I had so get my hands on some tatting needles and fast! Since me and eBay are best buds, I asked him for some help and a few days later my set of 6 needles arrived. I jumped back online and watched all three parts of OVW’s tutorial and made myself two pairs of earrings. I absolutely love how they came out and making them was so much fun!

Welcome!

Until now, creating a crochet blog has been an idea that’s been slowly simmering on a back burner. I’ve wanted to take this step a few times before but I held back and waited for the right time to do this. Well, there’s no better time as the present, right?

I’m relatively new at crochet – it hasn’t even been a year since I first picked up a crochet hook. For a few months before that, I have been playing around with knitting looms but i felt they had their limitations. And so I progressed (on a hypothetical ladder I see crochet being on slightly higher rung) to crochet because I felt that its span of possibilities expanded to the borders of our imagination whereas loom knitting is pretty much limited to hats and scarves. 

I’ve learned so much over the past months from many crochet experts – bloggers, YouTubers – and have just recently started experimenting and coming up with my own ideas and patterns (only a couple, so far). 

This blog will mostly serve as a log for me to keep track of my creations but, hopefully, also to inspire other crocheters out there.
