I have needed something to keep my mind off worrying about the sale. My choice to teach myself crochet, over knitting came from the same reason I chose snowbaording over skiing. (bet you didn't know there was a connection there?) One hook/stick/ski has got to be easier to control (or to at least minimise potential physical harm) than two.
My results are OK but...
- I still have not attempted anything but straight lines of crochet
- I still cannot change cotton colour ( I just bought a cotton that changes colour as you go, this did however cause problems when i obviously got the stitch count stuffed.)
- forget about anything fancy!
Never mind, at least it feels therapeutic at the moment!
EDIT: I see Lyn at Molly Chicken is trying out amigurumi too
Tonight I also gave mosaic maker a try to show you my baby beginner crochette and my needle felted patch I had to make to cover my boo-boos. I included some recent op. shop buys. (Mostly great material that activates my OCD tendancies so that I have to buy them even though I may never be able to use them)
