I need to get my act together and start working on some Christmas gifts. This year, I think I’m going to crochet a few things.
Just a few. Ok, ok, who am I kidding.
You see, the problem is that if I make something for myself… I have to make 3 more just like it for the monsters. So I made myself a pair of fingerless gloves… and 3 more pairs over the weekend. I also completed a scarf and started another. You know, for GIFTS!
Then I started working on a matching headband (without the big flower – I’ve never made one of those before), but I had to rip it out. I messed up really bad. I restarted it last night, and so far I’m okay. I don’t *think* I’ve messed it up yet. The first time I make something from a new-to-me pattern is always risky. I’m a terrible pattern reader. I usually end up taking it to my mom and have her decipher the directions for me, but I want to make something for her this year, so I can’t have her help me!
Here’s a terrible picture of my gloves, made with LionBrand yarn. It’s a little itchy (a wool blend) but so incredibly warm!
