I fumbled around and managed to create a simple crochet border on a knitted swatch. It was not impressive but I had fun in the class and signed up for another one on the spot (Learn to Knit Continental). I was intrigued and after I got home, I pulled up as many beginner crochet videos as I could and started practicing stitches. I was a bit bored with it until I found granny squares.
I ran through five or six versions of the granny square until I finally understood the stitches. This was my first completely successful attempt. (I'm using the crappiest of crappy acrylic yarn because I'm just practicing and why waste decent yarn?)

I'm nervous about our possible move. Nervous because we will have to acclimate Miss Macy to another new place. It's been six months since she's been with us and she's still a 'fraidy cat. I want her to feel secure and I'm not sure how we will do that with the new place.
