It had been a long time since I’d crocheted. I don’t know when I set it down. Maybe I was too busy homeschooling, or maybe it was when I started taking classes at the community college. It could have been when I became interested in buying and selling retro and vintage items on Ebay, but in any case, I missed it!
I opened up my old crochet bag and found this little potholder dress waiting in a folded crochet instruction book for me to finish it. It has a mate: a red and white apron used as the second potholder. I had finished that one and had it hanging in my kitchen for years, but a few months ago I decided to give it to Goodwill since I would probably never make the dress. I had forgotten I had already started the dress! I finally finished the dress a few weeks ago and now I’m almost done with another apron.
There is something calming about crocheting. I think I’ll keep it up this time.
