Completing this sweater has been a big accomplishment for me. I have been crocheting for ten years and this is my 1st official piece of clothing other than the vest I made the other day. I’ve been working on this sweater for about 2 weeks and if you notice I used a whole bunch of scraps and together I made something very unique.I would like to thank my aunt Migdalia for giving me the motivation and encouragement to expand my horizons and now because I am producing clothes.

I’m making my 1st Sweater

I’ve been working on this sweater for about a week and I really love it. I’m not sure if it’s my favorite sweater since the colors are not really  my style but I love that is it hand made, and I have finally produced something that one would call a piece of clothing and not just an accessory. I’m moving up in the crochet world. I will post updated photos as soon as I am done which should be sometime tonight.

Dear God

Please give me the strength I need to get through another day. I come to with my heart in my hand and I beg of you to give me direction. some days I wake up and it seems like I know exactly where I need to be , what I need to do, and what I want from this world. Others days I wake up and I don’t understand how I got where I am. I can’t comprehend how you can give your mind, body, & soul to another person and still feel so alone.it breaks my heart to know that I have connected with someone in a way that bonds us for life and still that does not guarantee us a future. I have always fought for what I wanted, but you can’t force a feeling that is suppose to come naturally. I wish that I could tell the man that I love how I feel and what I wanted and it could just be that simple. sometimes I’m not even sure what that is, it just seems easier to start over, but old habits die hard & most of the time the heart just wants what it wants. Now the body on the other hand is a completely different machine, it is resilient, and capable of so many things. the body helps your feelings act out what your desires really are even if your mind & heart do not agree.
