Learning a New Skill:: Crochet Cables {With These 2 Hands Link-Up #1}

Life has a way of crowding out our moments to create. Fighting for the time to rejuvenate, to engage in creativity is worth the effort.
 

This year, I feel like it is a constant fight for some moments to spend with sticks and string.

 


 

Despite the busyness of life, I have managed to complete my first crafting goal for 2013. I wanted to learn a new skill, and I did!
 

I have learned how to crochet cables!

 


 

Of course, I already knew how to work a front or back post double crochet, but I had never known about twisting them around other stitches to make cables.
 

And in true Connie style, I began learning the skill with a pattern but didn't bother to finish said pattern before I began working my own design. Yep, that's how I roll.

 


 

Danielle will be happy to know that her headband should be finished by this weekend! I can't wait to snap a few photos of this lovely creation when it's all complete!
 

I am so thrilled that crochet cables was my first new skill of the year! And I'm sure I'll be dreaming up all sorts of projects to make with crochet cables!

Now it's your turn. What have you been creating with your 2 hands?

 

With These 2 Hands link up is to encourage women to have some sort of creative outlet, even if it's not strictly considered a "craft."

 

With These 2 Hands will be hosted on 4 different blogs~ the daisyhead, CreativLei, Serving From Home, and DaisyHead Creations. When you link up at one of our blogs, your link will show in the linky on all 4 blogs. {Woot!}

 

 

Check out the With These 2 Hands Link-Up Guidelines, grab a button or banner for your post, and link up your blog post, your Craftsy project page, your Ravelry project page, a flickr photo, Instagram photo, etc. All I ask is that it be more than just a picture. Tell us a bit about your creative outlet or why it relaxes you. The idea is to give ideas, inspiration, and encouragement to others.

 

Be sure to visit some of the other ladies who have linked up! Leave them an encouraging word. Let's share some inspiration and create. After all, it's good for you!
