Learning somthing new, crochet

October 30th, 2013

I haven’t posted anything in a few days, not because I haven’t had anything to post about but I have been stuck trying to crochet a circular base! I don’t crochet much, a few little toys and things but not much, so it’s not a surprise that I am failing on this!

3 days! 3 wasted days!? on this stupid little bit of crochet and I really really want to give up, but I can’t, I really wish I could but I just don’t have it in me! so I have kept at it, I tried a few patterns I have found on-line and in books but most of them haven’t been big enough or just don’t seem to work, now I am most likely correct in saying it is just me doing it wrong because it can’t be this hard!!

I find myself remembering the early knitting days when I thought there were some things I would never get and now I am telling others it is simple! I see why they don’t agree!

I am determined to crack this even if I never pick up another hook again! the strange thing is I have made one of these things before but lost the pattern I wrote and now I don’t have the foggiest idea how to do it….and last time it wasn’t hard! I’m praying the gods are on my side tonight and I will crack it before the week is over! I still have my sleeves to finish which I have put aside to do this ‘quick’ circle! oh how I was wrong!

if you never hear from me again you know have failed my mission!
