It's a New Year and, yes and goals yes. I started taking crochet classes in December. I already am a knitter.  Lion Brand Studio/ Retail Store right in Chelsea has great classes to offer at great prices! To check out their website click here,  Lion Brand Studio is at 34 W 15th St. Not only do they have crocheting but knitting as well. So I realised that knitting I can watch a movie and do, crocheting I have to intently concentrate.  Hopefully this will change.

Tuesday night at Lion Brand is the Crochet Doctor, Andrea, she is great! Very knowledgable and patient. This past Tuesday I went with my friend Diane who is finishing a baby afghan for her new niece or nephew.  Since she doesn't know yet she is making the afghan in gender neutral colors. This is being done in a double crochet stitch.  This is what she brought to class:

She is finished with it and decided she wanted to do a boarder on it. She started it during the session:

I think the finished edge is looking nice. What do you think?
Do you have any afghans you have crocheted? 
Send a photo.

I can't sign off with posting a photo of Lion Brand's Windows. They are always so adorable and inspirational!

Happy Yarning!
