The First Time
I learned to crochet when I was a kid. The only thing I ever remember crocheting at the time was a really, really long crochet chain. I made it with yellow acrylic yarn (the scratchy kind from the 1980s). As it got longer, I rolled it around a rolling pin. I have no idea what happened to that over the years.
The Second Time
I didn’t crochet for many years after that. When I re-taught myself it was using a kids’ crochet book. So the first thing I made then was a crochet scarf but it was tiny because it was sized for a child (and I had no clue about sizing crochet at the time!) I sometimes use it now as a crochet tie.
Some Other Firsts
I thought I’d share a few other firsts:
First fingerless crochet gloves
First crochet dress
First crochet shrug
