I have too many interests. Like crochet, knitting, embroidery, stamping, etc, so I end up not spending enough time on any of them. So the other week, I decided to dedicate my hobby time to only crochet. Like my mom told me in Korean, dig only one well at a time. (Is there a similar saying in English?)
I tried a couple cute patterns from this crochet book that has been just sitting pretty on my bookshelf. I learned a few new stitches that I wasn't familiar with and even tried modifying the clover pattern to my liking with some success. w00t!
I should really try more from this book because I don't think I've been getting my money's worth. ^^ Craft books are pretty to look at and all but you don't know if you'll like the patterns until you try them, right?
This is from some time ago but I made a strap for my cell phone using one of the motifs from this book. It is one of the most beautiful crochet books I have, and I'm going to try more ideas from it for sure.
I wonder when I'll be able to crochet things in shapes I want, without any help from patterns? When will I be a crochet master? Hee.. for sure, it will take more than a week.
