Just what I needed. Another hobby.

Did I just take up crochet??


Yeah, I kinda did.Or at least, in this case, it was the thing that made the most sense. I'm pretty impressed that I pulled it off - although I did try another pattern and failed pretty spectacularly to really 'get it'. I just can't figure out what the pattern wants me to do, and if I'm in the right place to do it.

And then just last week I ordered 3 patterns from a great Etsy seller called WeeLittleStitches, so now I'm neck-deep in cross stitch again, because . . . let's be honest - these patterns are too great to just have and not stitch up.

So between those things, and doll-making (and doll clothes) I'm not getting any knitting done. And of course, the spread of materials around our already congested and cluttered home is getting really out of control, because I can't be expected to keep it all in one place, can I??

I think my husband's going to leave me. I'm not even sure my kids recognize me. It's bad. It's really, really bad.

Wow! Very impressive. But I'm like you with that other pattern with all patterns. I just don't "get" them. They don't click for me the way knitting patterns do!

Well golly shuck! Look at you..crocheting!! after all the times you complained that it was just too big a "pain" to hold the thread. Maybe that's the problem! THREAD! It's yarn you love and thread is just so much less fun!!! Enjoy! I have oodles of patterns you can borrow.
