I need to step up the photography - I keep forgetting to bring my camera out with me. There's plenty of yellow and orange stuff all over Bristol!
It is causing me more than a little anxiety. I love a lot of the patterns in this book. And I love Debbie's witty banter that peppers the ample explanations. But f*ck a duck, I don't love crochet.
I guess I have gotten used to knowing what I am doing - memories of crying as my bumpy mishapen holey creations fell of my needles are fading. Crochet seems like it should be easier but I just get frustrated that it doesn't feel as fluid as knitting now does. I persevered for an hour last night and created 'The Crochet Creature'. I wish I had photographed him for this update. He is a sickly creature. He was supposed to be a square of single crochet...
To remedy this, I started the Cascading Leaves
socks in my lovely springy hand dyed wool. It is truly beautiful. The pattern is simple and easy enough to potter along with... unfortunately, I fear the wool will come up short. Fingers crossed!
