The Crocheting Lamb?

My first weekend up here in East Lansing this summer I wound up at a yarn shop called Woven Art (it was teaching crochet/knit/and letting people weave as part of be a tourist weekend). I wound up learning how to crochet, and true to form, walked out of the yarn shop with two skeins of Henry’s Attic Safari III to make this guy. All it took was some double crochet in a circle. I know I said I’d never knit a poncho…but this one is crochet, thankyouverymuch. As you can see from my face, I am very unhappy about how hot Michigan is!

So of course the next step was to take Woven Art’s beginning crochet class. Here are my three samplers from it.

And so of course, this little guy (sampler 3) will so be frogged and used with the rest of my remaining Alpine cotton to make a shrug. Welcome to my shrug kick.


About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
