Because I felt guilty for yelling at my daughter
Because I apologized to her for over-reacting
Because my tooth hurt terribly
Because dh wasn't really home yesterday
Because my son stayed up way too late ....
Because of all of that I decided last night to learn to crochet. And so I started. I won't tell you that it took me 3 hours to complete just what I got done! I won't tell you how many times I restarted - it might have been 5 but I lost count. I wont tell you how long it took me to figure out how to do a treble.
I will tell you that I can now chain, single crochet - in the round no less - and treble without looking up how to do it anymore.
It still feels awkward though - when knitting the yarn is in my right hand, with this I'm trying to manipulate in with the left.
I suppose I should have started with something slightly easier, but this really is fun (when I'm not yelling at the needle and yarn for not doing what I want it to do LOL). Besides, this happens to be ear-marked for someone ... so I gotta work through it.
Of course, I only have about 7 things on knitting needles waiting to be finished, some sewing projects to do and some reading to get done ... but all of that can wait for a few hours!
