Man usually avoids attributing cleverness to somebody else unless it is an enemy.
Like most Knitters, crochet has been one of the banes of my existence for, well, ever (*or so it seems, at times). A month or two ago I finally decided that I was NOT going to be defeated by any fiber art, no matter how difficult I find it. So I decided that, somehow, I would at least become competent at crochet.
Right. Much easier said than done. I can happily report that I am crocheting a rug (circular, too!) and it actually looks, well, rug-like. Amazing, eh? I also pulled out a crochet hook tonight, because I didn’t have short enough DPNs for the task, and attempted amigurumi.
Mum said it looked like a lizard.
Well, at least it didn’t look like a lump, right?
Anyway. So goes my progress.
Tonight was Madame DeFarge’s Knitting Night. We actually met up with D and arranged for the Corset-A-Long to start next Monday. I am resisting the urge to rejoice too loudly. That silk dupioni is calling me, as is the coutille. I also have to finish that moderne, zippered corset I made.
D also lent me this tiny dino, so I could copy the pattern to make some for little D:
Isn’t that widdle dino soooo kawaii??? Don’t you just want to play with it? (I admit that I spent 1/2 an hour playing with the set she brought). Oh, you know you do.
Soooo… yeah. I think that’s everything. Oh, wait, I did 2 mi today. Must remember that for the sidebar. And I’ve also only got an inch left on one sleeve of the wraplan. I need to update the Guild calendar now…
