I finally did it….
I had been reading this forum since it started and have been antsy to start a project… well after an afternoon of looking up Afghan patterns I found this Popcorn Ripple Afghan
-- And started it last night in white. Although I did catch myself trying to wrap the yarn from my right hand a couple of times…. The movement came back to me rather quickly.
I haven’t really crocheted in over 20 years when the last thing I made was a baby blanket for my niece, yet unborn -- she graduated from college last year! When I was looking for my hooks I came across a scarf I had started for my husband when we were dating… we have been married 19 years this month… I finished it off and it is now padding for my cat’s bed… the colors are pretty blah now that I get a second look! (Can you guess that I am a pack rat… and that is how I can have yarn, hooks and UFO’s from 20+ years ago…)
Now I remember why I enjoyed it so much… very relaxing, and when you mess up, it’s not that big of a deal to pull the yarn, and you just have the one loop to contend with! It also makes me think I really need to learn continental knitting… the movement for crochet has so much more of a flow compared to my knitting.
Just wanted to share, thanks! Lisa
