The magnificence that is my crochet handiwork
Don't hate me because I'm so immediately successful at crochet.
The 2nd grade Mother of Divine Grace curriculum suggests the student learn to crochet. It assists with small motor skills. In order to teach my son, I needed to learn how to crochet myself!
I read a little "how to" that came with the kit and watched a few YouTubes on how to crochet. Amazingly, that was all I needed!
First, I made this....
For my next project, again I started out just making rows and yet my natural talent shaped it into this...
Finally, here is the piece d'resistance. Of this, I may become a dot.com business. Go ahead and click on this one to enlarge....You're going to want to see MORE of this one....
Buoyed by my previous work and the way those projects took on dimensions not dreamed of by others, I set out once again with the same formula. Just "trying" to crochet some straight lines, seeing if I could "do normal."
I've got to wonder if the shoemaker's elves did more with it whilst I slept because magically it seemed to take a chapeau shape! It rounded. It mushroomed. Certainly, by now you can see a dapper cap with a JJ Walker, Kid Dyn-O-Mite lid protruding. Good times!
We've all worn it and it has a "je ne sais quoi pas" quality on all of us, like the sisterhood of the traveling pants! Perhaps this is a sign that I should make homemade Christmas gifts putting more of these on more heads?!
Who knows what I'll make next? I have to keep busy at it just out of curiosity! You know what they say....Idle hands do the devil's work.
