Oh my goodness I am crocheting!! Ok I’ve actually been crocheting for a couple of weeks now and well…I’m not sure you can call what I was doing actual crochet. I made a blue flower that ended up looking like a defunct swastica and a bag that was so misshapen it became a goofy wash rag (which I will use so that someday I will look at it toss my head and think smugly, “oh ha ha how rudimentary my skills were back then.”) But now I think I’m actually getting it, I’m making a took and it’s going surprisingly well after much “frogging” (crochet term for ripping out your work, yes I am learning crochet speak) and much stalking of Beki my patient and great crochet teaching friend I think I may be making a real live hat!!! After the hat I want to try a flower again (to put on the hat) and after that I want to make something for a certain baby I know, but we’ll see I get frustrated easy so it can’t be super hard and I’m always over confident in what I can accomplish.
I remember distinctly saying one time that I had no desire to learn to crochet and here I am desiring it! Just goes to show you, I’m weird. But just think; now I’ll have something to do on those long trips to Toledo (since I have children and can’t really sleep all the way there any more) and something to do while at my in-laws house. Plus I can make all manner of cute hats, scarves, baby jackets etc. Huh I wonder what I’m going to be learning to do next year (please not scrap booking!) Well I’m off to stitch some “sc” into another “round”.
