Help. I can't stop. Since I got back from Quilt Market, I've taught myself to crochet. Are there other much more productive things I should be doing? Absolutely. But I saw these pillows. I mean, come on. The gorgeousness is overwhelming.
So I felt I simply HAD to learn. And I love it. For some reason I really jibe with it, more than knitting. I think those poor gloves have been abandoned forever.
It's clear that I did start it as an escape. I need to be doing something, but wasn't ready to face all the "real" work I should be doing. But, now since it's so darned portable, I may be losing a good chunk of time to this new-to-me craft. Ah well.
The first pix are just little test patches I practiced. I was so impressed with the circle. And then I made a scarf. It's a very simple pattern from The Happy Hooker book. I'm disappointed that it's not a little wider and much longer. I think I may be doing everything a little too tight. But Aurora already told me she wants it, so I'll make a matching one fore me... And I'm working on getting the flower thing down, so I know you'll see some of those soon.
In other news, did you note that this is 100 posts for me? Yay! I know a giveaway is in order, but my blogiversary is only a month away, so I may be waiting for that. This way I'll be able to make it something really good. But here's the catch, if you're a regular lurker, you may want to leave a comment soon, because I think I'm going to do some kind of kooky giveaway that rewards those who have left comments in the past.
