One Stitch at a Time
How I Crocheted a Scarf
Seems simple enough, right? We'll see.
Day 7, Part 2
My friend said that she has a crocheting book, and that she will let me borrow it to use during break. I’m a little nervous on how this will turn out. I mean, what if when I get back she takes one look at my work and says, “Oh, this doesn’t look good”? That would be so disappointing. I’m more reluctant to take off the training wheels this time. It’s one thing to fail. In a way, that big failure of having to redo several hours worth of work actually helped in the sense that the smaller failures don’t matter as much. If I realize that I have to go back and redo a few rounds, it doesn’t seem to matter as much. At the same time, as I progress, it takes me less time to get the same amount of work done, which means that as I go along, each mistake costs me less time than the last one. So hopefully I will be able to finish these squares up over break, or at least finish several more of them. At this point, I’ve made three squares, and I need eleven in order to make this scarf.
Okay, so I tried assembling the scarf. So much for not taking very long. I’ve been sitting here for about half an hour and I just can’t figure out where to start. I’m not sure if I’m doing this correctly. In fact, I’m pretty sure that I’m not. Great. I did all this work and now I’m struggling again. Back to the training wheels. So much for feeling like an expert.
