I give.

I learned to crochet last night.

I know, I know. I said I’d never learn, but I got a book (see previous posts for the link), and it’s really awesome, and it’s all crochet, so I had to learn. It was unavoidable. However, I am learning crochet faster than I learned knitting, and I think I will probably never crochet anything other than amigurumi, and so I feel pretty safe.

So far, I’ve crocheted 6 square inches of test stitches, and I feel pretty confident with single, half-double, and double crochet stitches. I need some more practice, but I feel I’m very close to a yarn-based Cthulhu.

Another thing I discovered was that if you feel groggy, like when you’ve taken Benadryl (or the morning after you’ve taken a sleeping pill) the best way to combat this is to take a sleeping pill at night. Or at least that’s how it works for me. Or maybe it was because it rained. I dunno. All I know is that I don’t have malaria.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
