Crocheting a Happy Easter....

Happy Easter from Tessie and the Mad Peruvian Bunny.  Unfortunately, that's the only bunny around here.  We make do with what we can find...

He's not really ideal for cuddling ...Look at those claws!
I decided that the cottage needs an afghan to take naps with....It has been a while since I did any mini crochet.  It is taking a while to get back into the swing of things.

I am using mercerized cotton sewing thread and a #14 hook.

This is an old hook and smaller than some of the new #14s.

I am just doing a granny square and simply not stopping where most people stop when they sew them together. There are millions of patterns for granny squares on the net, so I am not going to repeat it here.

Crochet Pattern Central is a great place to look if you need patterns.

The first photo was taken at about 10:00am.  I had five rows done then. 

At 11:00am I had eight rows finished.  Each row gets bigger as you go and I need to get back into mini crocheting...This could take a while...

Maybe I should say, "See you next Easter!"

Just kidding...See you tomorrow.

Cute picture of Tessie and her bunny. That's a nice pattern for the afghan. I don't crochet, just knitting. I would love to learn crochet.

Happy Easter Casey and crew! I admire that tiny crocheting you're doing. I've crocheted for over 40 years but still haven't mastered the steel hooks. Hmm, might have to pull them out and try again.

Wow, that is some tiny work.

I can't even manage crocheting life sized stuff. XD
