Why I Must Learn How to Crochet

Last weekend, I bought a book called Creepy Cute Crochet. Zombies! Ninjas! Trojans and Spartans! These are the most adorable little creatures ever, and clearly I must learn how to crochet someday so I can make some of them. I’m sure there are other reasons why I should learn, but this is the one that’s foremost in my brain right now.

Remember the third Patons Soy Wool Stripes seed stitch scarf that I knit, back in the winter? Yeah, I barely remember it either. I finished knitting it in December or January, but it was only recently that I forced myself to weave in the ends and send it off to the recipient. Merry Christmas! In June!

The colour is called Natural Green. I know there’s much more orange than green, but I didn’t name it. I keep knitting these scarves and giving them away. I swear I’ll make one for myself someday.

The second Tangled Up in Blue Sock is humming along. I’ve got about an inch of leg to go before I knit the heel flap. I’m going down a needle size for this next inch, because that’s what I did on the first sock to keep it from being baggy at the ankle. It didn’t work at all, but since I did it on the first sock, I want the second one to be as matchy-matchy with it as possible.

In the past few days I have actually been adding some project and stash details on Ravelry. See, even my laziness has its limits! It just takes a long time to find them.

    Ooh, I saw that book last week at Borders – I HAVE to have it too! I only know very basic crochet but I *will* learn how to make those adorable little creatures. The bride and groom, and the monkey in the fez were my favorites!

    I like the scarf. At least the recipient didn’t outgrow it before it was sent. That’s a big oops.

    I love that book! It’s so cute. Thanks for sharing.
