A big project . . .

Anyone who knows me knows that I am the least patient person around. That's why it is so funny that I am crocheting like crazy. It is super slow at work this week, so I decided to take what I had done in to my mom for a few pointers. I was having extreme difficulty in ending rows and I kept getting a smaller number of stitches for each row so everything I did ended up looking like I was making Robert a crocheted tie!

My mom gave me a few pointers and I figured out where I was loosing a stitch each row. I also realized that I was doing things far too loosey-goosey. I got a good lesson and now I've embarked on a big project. I am making McCartney an afgan.

I went to JoAnn's today and bought a bunch of yarn and I have become a needle-crazy mama. You may have to get used to pictures of my progress. I hope I find it relaxing, right now it makes me nervous because I am still trying to find my stride. I also need to figure out how to keep my tongue in my mouth when I am concentrating!

Cool! Once you get your rhythm, the tongue won't pop out anymore :)

It looks great. I like doing it because unlike quilting it's something you take with you or John can watch football while I work next to him.

it is a slippery slope there.. I am knitting obsessed, I have dabbled in crochet and would love to spend all day every day knitting. I do find it relaxing but I try to find patterns or make up a pattern to keep it relaxing, not too many tricky parts.
