I’ve recently taken up crocheting (a suggestion by my friend Daniela) and after doing it wrong a lot of times and then finally getting my aunt to show me how to do it right, I thought I’d attempt an actual pattern.
It’s from a book called Stitch ‘n’ Bitch: The Happy Hooker. I find crochet extremely fun! I’ve knitted before, but I seem to always get bored before I finish anything. With crochet there are so many more stitches and possibilities to make stuff look interesting without getting too complicated.
I also find it very relaxing. I sit upstairs and listen to classical music while creating. It’s a nice change because I usually spend too much time at my computer!
I think my next project will be a shawl. Have to swallow the fact that (nice) yarn is incredibly expensive though. The results are well worth it though.
