Loopy Lou's


We are preparing for our yearly camping trip to The Great Smoky Mountains. 
When we found out that we were moving back to the south, the thing we were most excited about was continuing our autumn camping tradition in the Smokies.  This year will be a little bit different since I will be 6 months pregnant but it will be a glorious time just the same. 

Anyhow, I've been thinking up projects to do while sitting around the campfire. 
I'm going to work on sock monkeys for the shop and polishing up my crocheting skills. 
You see when I was 28, I spent a summer working for a Girl Scout Camp in Park City, Utah. 
I taught many young ladies how to make these crocheted hats. 
My skills are rusty now so I am taking this class presented by Crafty Minx. 
(Daniel is taking it too, how fun)
You should take it as well. 
It's free. 
I put the button on my sidebar to help remind you to get your crochet on.  

love love,
Fritzi Marie

Oh thank you, thank you for the link to the crochet class! I really want to learn to crochet. I long to make cute baby blankets and afghans! And scarves and hats and EVERYTHING.

Hope y'all have a fun time out in the great outdoors!

I LOVE camping. Also, Dana (Craftyminx) is a real life friend of mine! She's pretty amazing. :)

I have no patience for crotcheting. My "hat's off" to anyone who does! lol. Sorry if I just made you groan with my cheesy pun. But I really do respect the craft- it's a lot of work.

How fun! I've tried crocheting a couple of times but being a lefty has always tripped me up before. I'd love to learn. Maybe I will give it another shot!
