I have to have purple!  I love pastels. They are so calming. :meditate:

Thank you, Susan!  The girl that got me started again works with me. She's maybe 24 years old and she can crochet with her eyes closed!  She can make a baby blanket in one weekend. She's dauntless!  She does great work.  I've crochet several scarves and a blanket for my son. This one is mine and hubby, of course. The next one is for my mom.   :grin:

Both knitting and crocheting are coming back stronger than ever with young people. One of my sons is residential director at a school of music and he said there were regular "Stitch and B*tch" sessions held in the dorms among a group of knitters. I'm a regular lurker on Ravelry.com, a site for people who knit, crochet, spin, and weave, and I'm amazed by the talent of young people (men and women) in their teens and 20s (and up, of course). They are fearless and tackle projects that I still only dream about. And, like you said, they can do so with their eyes closed on the less complex projects.

That's great to hear. It's a very therapeutic.   And, I do enjoy it while watching TV with a cup of hot tea.

Thank you, MJ!  I'm getting ready for spring! I wish I could send some sunshine and tulips your way to keep the cold and snow away!

You took the words out of my mouth about the resurgence of knitting and crocheting among younger people - which is gratifying to see! An antidote to all the technology I think. I go over to Ravelry sometimes just to see stuff. I'm an old knitter from way back(like my early 20s) was doing so in the decades when it totally wasn't cool to knit but I paid no mind whatsoever. But my knitting over the last 10 years or so has been very on and off for various reasons - I would like to get back to it but I'm not quite there yet(too involved to explain).
