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.
