Nieces,weddings and crochet

One of my nieces is getting married in May so I decided to crochet her a blanket for her gift. She is pretty classy so I didn't want any ole' blanket. It took me awhile to figure out what I was going to do but figure it out I did. Will it be nice enough? I don't know. What I decided to do is use a cream tweed yarn(I Love This Yarn-super soft) and just double crochet some squares and  alternate the the squares. Its simple yet has some texture.
Here is a poor quality pic. Bear with me, I'm learning how to use the camera and light and and and all the other good stuff that goes along with it.
I really need to get a move on because I wont be able to go to the wedding but her shower is coming up in a couple of weeks.EGADS!

Now, I also have another niece that is getting married next October. I will also be crocheting her a blanket as well. But this one will be a bit more challenging. Her fiance' and her(is that proper grammar?) love Harry Potter so I thought I would run with that theme. I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to do that yet. But I certainly will post as I go along. I really am looking forward to the challenge!

Here We go

Okie, Dokie, this is it. My first blog.
Ive read alot about what the first post should contain. Some say it should list all what the blog is going to be about. Some say just a general introduction. I dont really know what the blog will be about...lots of things really....nothing in particular. Do you want to know? I can list them....Really? Ok. Here goes...let's see.....It'll will definitely contain crochet stuff...I love crochet stuff. It will definitely contain cat stuff...I love my cat. And definitely contain stuff about my faith....I love my faith. Those are the basics. Im sure there will be a bunch of other random stuff thrown in as well. Maybe I should have called it My Stuff :)
And fair warning....I am random. I tend to blurt things out. I am also SO not a writer. Im just going to write it as it comes. So stick around if you want or not.
