~ Springtime Hobbies: Afghan Confections ~

I'm tired today, and it's gloomy and cold out, and I just want to cuddle up and read in one of these sweet creations.

Once I get my zip back {and before the weather gets too lovely}, I'd like to learn how to crochet. My Great Aunties used to make all sorts of stuff, and my mom taught me when I was little, but it's all forgotten these days. Once my fingers learned the ropes, they'd probably be tempted to cover my walls in rainbow afghans, drape them over every surface, and even fashion them into something wearable {yes, I'm a granny at heart}.

What hobbies are you itching to take up while you're stuck inside until spring? And for those of you who are crochet wizards, any advice on getting started?
