I was warned...
AFTER I learned to crochet that crocheting is addicting. I really thought I'd stop after a scarf and hat until I found a link with Spring and Summer scarf patterns. I've always hated Youtube. I can rewind and rewind again, over and over when something doesn't make sense but the video doesn't change. I can't ask questions to make sure I'm doing it right. Somehow, I ended up with this love/hate relationship with Youtube and all of a sudden I have saved videos of crochet projects I want to do. After all the frustrating hours of learning the basics of crocheting, it finally clicked for me.
I get it!
Now I can't stop crocheting!
So, here are my next two projects:
My hat turned out really big. So big, I can't wear it. Michael's craft store has become my second home. I'm addicted to the yarn aisle. So I went back, got more yarn and I'm planning on doing this hat again. At least not until I figure out how to make this hat a lot smaller... and with different colors. It looks like a mushroom on my head. No foolin'! (and no, you won't see a picture!)
Next, my new scarf:
This is a great project to use up scrap yarn. Even though I don't really have much scrap yarn yet, I went and bought "scrap" yarn. Now I have tons of it! But this scarf turned out perfect! I love it and it's so fun. It's way too long, but I won't complain when I'm turning into a Popsicle at the bus stop and I can wrap it around my head 'one more time'. I learned that my scarves are more successful when I work on them horizontally instead of vertically.
I told my husband I have to go get more yarn. His reply: "Really? Ok..." That really shocked me, especially when my big bag of yarn spilling over the top was sitting right next to him.
Yes, I need more yarn!
