Oh Blogettes, I know life isn't one neat and tidy ball of yarn! Believe me I KNOW! And you know how it is....you can have 15 nice tidy bundles of yarn, but that one messy bundle just...well....sends you over the edge! It happens.
But look...it's getting better! I'm not so whiney now! And I haven't been blogging because you probably wouldn't have wanted to hear it. You wouldn't believe the paragraphs I just deleted. Whining about the yard(S), acres, bees, MIL (and the lack of help even though he has two siblings) and on and on....I know...and I'll shadup!
And just so you know....this ball of yarn is at Groovy Girl Art store. I hear it's providing non-knitters/crocheters who come to hang out, something to do! (Huh Kathy?) You see, last week was going downhill fast, and I went to GGA to kinda relax, and get my skeins of yarn wound. And would you believe that is what happened. She, the Groovy Girl, dropped my yarn, then dropped it again! Then told me "Don't look!" However, she taught me the star stitch, so she's forgiven. I love the fact that I have a place to go now, even if I can only bop in for an hour or so now and then.
And my Shug and I are taking action! And every chance I get I am finishing something. You see, it isn't just the crochet projects that are not getting finished, it's everything. Housework, yard work, beekeeping, etc. It's overwhelming. And we just spent the entire day today moving his Mom. with no help
And about the "Cindy stitch." I tried to do a tutorial, but you know what? It's hard to do a tutorial! So I'll just tell you.
You know how you do a double crochet right? Where you wrap the yarn around the hook, put it through the loop, wrap it around, pull it back through two loops, wrap it again, and pull it back through two loops again? Well, I was wrapping the yarn around the hook, putting it through the loop, wrapping it again, and pulling it back through ONCE, then wrapping it and pulling it through two loops, then wrapping it and pulling it through two loops. So, I was adding that first little pull through the one loop. Get it? Is that a real stitch? It is in my blanket!!!!!
I know, blurry picture. But look..I thought I had this blanket done. And then I noticed.....this is what a corner is supposed to look like.
And this corner is lacking three double Cindy stitch crochets! WTH?
And this square had 8 double Cindy stitch crochet rows....
and there should only be seven! WTH?
Then after laying it all out on the bed, there was a square that I just couldn't like! WTH?
You can't even see it, but I'm in the process of redoing it right now.
And I'm off to my stitchery group right now to have some female bonding fun! So see ya....and thank you all for the lovely comments and thoughts and hugs.
And Kay R....I didn't know you were a blog stalker! For crying out loud, comment girl!
