it's been week 2 for me and my new hobby of crocheting. and i'm still loving it. the fantastic discovery i made which makes me even more excited: i can crochet while riding in the car! usually i get terribly car sick if i do anything involving looking down in a moving vehicle, but for some reason i don't when i crochet. my uneducated guess is that crocheting involves movement at all times, while for example reading requires the object to keep still which it cannot do while driving.
this is the brown scarf i'm working on right now. i'm not having a clear plan yet when i'm crocheting since i'm still in practice mode.
- the reason why i'm working on a scarf: i don't know how to do anything else yet.
- the reason for it being brown: i had some leftover brown yarn.
- the reason why it's not going to be very wide: that's all the yarn i've got.
so off to the store i'll have to go! if i get better at it i'll get all fancy and order some online. for now, i'm just practicing.
do you have any tips and tricks for me as a beginner?
do you perhaps have any tips on where to buy yarn and what to look out for?
should i learn to knit rather than crochet?
usually it's sylvia doing the knitting here at artsy ants, but today i'm joining ginny for the first time with a yarn along post. what are you knitting and reading?
