I’ve been playing with teaching myself crochet over the past year or more, learning various stitches and such. This is the first piece fit for public consumption, mostly completed over a year ago. Completed except for knowing what to do with the ends, of course!
YouTube to the rescue… there are a number of excellent how-to videos for crochet in all shape and form and process, so it was easy to dig one up, buy some yarn needles, and dig in.
I am very proud of my potholder/dishrag/Barbie blanket LOL! Mr. Bun also approves, apparently. If not, he was kind enough to say nothing about it.
P.S. I am working also on scarves, one for hubby and one for me, but naturally had to pick more difficult fibers to work with, rather befuddling to the newbie… organic cotton which separates strands if I breathe on it wrong, and a very fuzzy, stretchy and easily tangled alpaca. But both fibers feel very yummy, and we’ll just wear our scarves beneath our coats. ;-p
LOL! You’d think crocheting would be easy for us, no?!
Can’t wait to see the scarves.
I NEED Mr. Bun!!!!
Oooo, how awesome that you are making scarves. Looking forward to seeing them. I enjoy peeking in and seeing where your creativity takes you, so I would like to nominate you for “The Versatile Blogger” award. I hope you accept it! Keep those nimble fingers working. 😉
Aw, DeeDee, thank you! I have GOT to get over to your blogs more often!!
Some fibres are so much easier to work with than others! But I bet your scarves will turn out beautifully. Mr. Bun looks adorable with your crochet piece!
