Crochet this time.
Started this when we first moved here.
All those triangles kept me busy while we were in a hotel.
(Colyer was six in that picture up there!
He is almost 8 now!)
I got them pieced into squares but stalled
when I realized I was going to need to keep changing colors
to piece the whole thing together.
It's really no big deal.
Didn't even take long once I decided to do it months and months and months later.
As I sewed it together I liked seeing how much better
and more consistent of a crocheter I have become.
I scoffed at some of my old stitches.
That Natalie, such a beginner. Pfft...
The more experienced crochet-Natalie, got to do the edging.
Nothing hard, but two years ago,
I would not have been comfortable
holding the yarn and the hook.
I was still practicing to get the right tension.
All comes with doing.
I am pretty happy with it. The pin-wheels are pretty.
And totally not on purpose, but it fits in the teardrop perfectly.
Such a nice weight too.
Being a beginner way back then, I used what I call "craft yarn",
which is inexpensive, but machine washable.
Now-a-days I buy what I call "real yarn",
which is basically the good stuff from a yarn store.
I am not a yarn snob, I just like soft, well made, and real fibers.
I am ready to start a new one.
Maybe just squares in fun colors.
We shall see.
