but I'm still pretty proud of myself. I finally taught myself to crochet, despite many, many failed attempts. For years, I was convinced that I was crochet-challenged, except for the basic chain stitch and stitches that I seemed to make up, as I coudn't find them in any books. I am completely and utterly left-handed, which was a challenge with almost all instrutions being for right-handers.
Hours sitting bedside with my Dad was the perfect opportunity to finally concentrate and figure it all out. In addition to the swatches and scarf in this photo is another scarf already given to my brother.
As soon as I finish my Arianne sweater (almost done!) I am crocheting a sweater for this little fashionista. (Mary--already bought the yarn--on sale!)
Down the road, I have visions of granny squares jewelry with delicate wire and pearls.
