Over the past few years, I have been attempting to teach myself how to crochet. I can make a scarf. I am not sure if people will wear it, but I can do it. The stitches are not even and it kind of resembles a piece that look like it was shit out of a skein on a really bad day! Yep - that is what my projects look like.
I don't really know how to do anything special and I haven't really figured out how to follow directions. (Shhhh - no smart comments on that one!) Yet I keep coming back for more torture. I really want to learn how to crochet. I got a book from the library on how to teach myself visually. I even had a friend dumb down the instructions of a project for me so I could understand what I was supposed to do.
So today I tackled another project. I wanted to make these vintage looking fingerless gloves. I know - I know! A really hard project for someone very much a beginner!
This is what I ended up with!
Doesn't look like much does it?
Yep - that was about 2 hours worth of work. I don't even know how it is supposed to resemble a glove. My arms are tired and it was at that point I realized I screwed up. (I did further research on Youtube so I could get more visual instructions!) I needed to do a slip stitch to attach the ends. Now I have a good understanding of what I need to do so I will probably give it another go. But for now, the only thing this craft project got me was a pile of unraveled yarn and a headache!
