My crochet progress update is, again, not good. I’ve made pretty much an identical little rectangle to what I showed on my last little update and then things started to get a bit tangled and I got a bit lost on where the links were and where I needed to loop and, I got lost okay! I tried to have another go today but the cat distracted me and we played chase the yarn for a little bit. This was probably the most fun I’ve had so far whilst trying to learn. My mum did mention the fact that if my aim is to make a blanket I’m doing really well. She pointed out that what I was doing would probably be great as spider blankets, so at least the spiders in the area will be warm this winter.
I tried a bit later on with a different wool and had a minor success! I worked out that I was doing the turn at the end of the row wrong which is why it was becoming so deformed! I made progress! Maybe there is hope for this square after all. The wool is so soft and fluffy that I didn’t want to use it until I had a bit more skill but I caved and found it easier than the yucky brown wool I had been using. I still find it difficult to identify where to place the next thread but I’m extremely proud of myself for managing to sort out the edges! Now if only I could find the patience to finish a full square.
I will attempt one more today I think and then I’ll leave it for another day. I’m slowly getting better and I know the images don’t look much like I am but it’s getting a little easier to do. Still a long way to go before I’m any good though, it would help if I didn’t give up on the fourth row pretty much every time. As they say in Galaxy Quest, ‘Never give up. Never surrender.’
Don’t worry, I won’t keep rambling on about crochet forever, I will start reviewing products soon, i’m just still in the process of trying them out, bare with me!
