Dipping My Toe Back In The Crochet Pool

I had a "crochet period" in the early eighties and sad to say I have forgotten most of what I learned then.  One of my very close friends was going to teach a class on crocheted snowflakes.  Since I didn't remember a single crochet from a double, I picked up a library book that had illustrations of the basic stitches.  I honestly didn't want to be the slowest person in the class. That part of the plan worked perfectly. I made my snowflakes and had fun doing it.

 I planned to just return the book, but I spent some time looking through it and I was captivated by a pattern for a little girl's summer dress.  I started it and although it is a challenge , I am having a wonderful time working on it.  I know someone who has twin girls so I'll be making two.  Of course I had to buy the book, Crochet One-Skein Wonders.  I don't know how long this crochet infatuation will last this time, but for me knitting always wins out in the end!
