My crochet isn’t going so well. I know I can do this. I know what I’m doing. I just can’t find the time. I’m so livid right now. I’m so past hiding it. This is my work. I earned this. I can’t unlearn it. I can, however, find a way to to restructure it.
I’ve been experimenting with stitches that give my work more elasticity. This is the arduous process of design. More often than not things don’t pan out. I think in some weird way that’s why I enjoy it. When I do have that occasional “Eureka!” moment it makes me smile and keeps me going.
I found this sunhat on clearance at Joann’s the other day. I loved the hat itself, but wasn’t feeling the brown bow… so I crocheted my own band to go around it. I like how it turned out. My husband said it was looking all Carmen Sandiego-ish which is a-ok with me.
