Lately, though, I’ve been drawn to it. I bought some artisan yarn and a couple of hooks, and the basics came back to me quickly (though it’s been a loooong time).
I wasn’t satisfied with my results, so I bought a book on basic crochet and a couple of skeins of cheap acrylic yarn from Big Lots for practice and … these are the results.
Now, I can’t blame the book. The problem is, I don’t follow directions very long. As soon as I learn something, I want to go off and try my own ideas. And … well, you can see the results. Kind of scary. I put the best of the flowers on a headband.
But I’m getting better. I find just the process of crocheting extremely relaxing, like meditation. I think I’ll list my mutants for sale in my Etsy shop, just for fun.
