In my quest to learn to knit, I ended up teaching myself to crochet instead and have been spending every night this week by the fireplace crocheting, ripping out, cursing, checking instructions, and trying again.
I think I have the single chain stitch down now, and it's only been 5 days. My eyes are buggy and my fingers sore, and the results are a beautiful,and finally straight, 1/3 of a scarf.
Don't worry, I'll be back tomorrow with pictures and stories.
After I catch up on the laundry, bake cookies, and clean because not only have I discovered that I suck at following directions, but one other thing....
Crocheting is as addictive as blogging.
