graduated… i think.
crochet school. remember when i was so pumped to do it? well i fell behind in the video lessons rather rapidly, and was near the point of giving up on crochet again when i smacked myself in the head with the reminder that i’ve given up on crochet too many times already. it’s like the sewing thing; if i want to learn i have to just do it.
so i sat down one night with my laptop, yarn & hooks and worked through the videos until 2am hit and i was all caught up. my style of learning is more “pick a project and learn as i go through it”, so once i’d reached a point in the videos where i knew the basic stitches, i pulled up the pattern that initiated the whole “learn to crochet” phase: http://nerdigurumi.com/2010/10/amigurumi-kirby-with-pattern.html
and then i made him:
so much fun, and i couldn’t believe how easy it was to do! of course the whole time i was reading the crochet pattern i was converting it into a knitting pattern in my head, but i love the way amigurumi look all crochet-ified.
i guess with a successful crochet project tucked under my belt (or clutched in my son’s hands), i’ve moved into the “beginner crochet” category and have left that girl who merely wanted to crochet behind. so… should i crochet myself a diploma?
