Can you guess what another of my favorite hobbies is?
Here are some hints:

BINGO -- It's Crochet!
Those that know me well know that I enjoy crocheting. I especially enjoy making items to give away as gifts. Items such as baby blankets, afghans, hats, sweaters, ornaments, etc. I recently found a crochet blog titled "Crochet Concupiscence" and saw they are doing a give-a-way for a free shawl pattern. In fact, they are doing 31-Days of giveaways so you should check them out when you can.
One way to enter was to indicate who I would make the shawl for and if I win this pattern I plan to make the shawl and give it away to a deserving senior citizen.
Here's an example of my crochet skills. This is a "Pillowghan". I made this for my dear daughter (DD) when she was about 4 or 5 years old. When you fold it it converts into a pillow. Crocheted items last a long time. These pictures were taken in 2006, but it was made in 1992 or 1993.
I haven't crochet in a long time, but I'm looking forward to starting a new or completing an old project very soon.
