Trying New Things + Peanuts Crochet Kit Giveaway

Happy Memorial Day! As you read this, I’m en route back home from a quick surprise trip up to Rhode Island! I hope you all are enjoying the holiday and either on an awesome adventure, or getting some good R&R. Long weekends really are the best!

Lately I’ve been thinking about some new skills I’d like to pick up. One of them being crocheting. This isn’t something widely thought about by the 20-somethings (at least every one I know), but it’s a skill that I think could really come in handy one day.

The older generations (i.e. Gen X and earlier), are pretty handy. They can knit/crochet, sew, etc. but if the zombie apocalypse happened and life as we know it came to an end, what would you be able to contribute? Ok, maybe I’m being a bit drastic. But I think it’d still be pretty cool to learn some of these handy life skills.

So I’m going to learn to crochet! Ted’s mom always makes amazing scarves, hats, mittens, etc. and I’ve been inspired to give it a try for a while. I’ll be using the Peanuts Crochet Kit as my starting base, and I’m excited to be giving one away to one of you guys to attempt to crochet with me!

The booklet included with the kit contains instructions on how to make 12 characters from the Peanuts comic strip, but enough yarn to make 3 of them. From what I’ve read, this kit is more for an intermediate-level crocheter, but I’m ready to jump in and give it a go! If you’re a beginner too, the Snoopy and Woodstock patterns seem like the easier of the bunch!


What’s one new thing you want to try?

Disclosure: I received a Peanuts Crochet Kit as part of the Peanuts Ambassador Program.

    drastic" <—– HAHA…Love it!!

    I have always wanted to learn how to crochet too! The question asks about our plans for Valentine's Day?? I assume you meant to change that….but, I will probably plan on making dinner at home with Hubby and then decide last second to go out and scramble to find a place. That is what normally happens. :)
