Valentine Decor

Been working on some Valentine's Day decor around here, which included a run to the store to buy a crochet needle.


Don't get too excited about the crochet part. As far as I've gotten is making a very long chain.

It's all going to be part of a Valentine's garland that I'll show you later.

Can you call it "crocheted" if you only use a chain stitch? Not sure that is fair to all those people that work their fingers to the bone making sweaters and fancy stuff o' yarn.

  3. Of course it's crochet. If you did it with a knitting needle it would be knitting. Or tatting with a tatting needle. Don't question it, just do it. Nice color.

  4. I'm impressed! The only thing I know how to crochet is the loop on my Christmas socks. Apparently I made up a new stitch, because a crochet expert asked me what kind of stitch I used since she'd never seen anything like it before. I don't think it was a complement.

  6. If you're doing it with a crochet hook, it's crocheting! To me the hardest part of crocheting is remembering how to cast on...then I'm okay lol!

  8. Wu-hoo! It all starts with a chain stitch! Now, if you really want to sound like a pro, it's a crochet 'hook', not needle. Or you can be like DD & DH and call it a 'crochet stick'. :) Have fun!! PS: Love the colour of the thread you're using!!
