I got my first real cowl yarn,
Bought it at the Michael’s store,
Crocheted it till my fingers bled
Was the summer of ….
Ok, it’s actually winter.
Come on, no Bryan Adams fans in the group?
I can keep going for another stanza…
Me and some books and YouTube,
I concentrated and I tried real hard.
Didn’t quit, didn’t get angry,
Who would’ve know I’d ever make it this far.
Really- my finger did bleed. Small tear in the nail got caught in the yarn and before I knew it, ended up with a very short, and very sore nail. It made for some difficult crocheting from then on.
I am about 2/3 of the length of the cowl now. It is pretty easy to see the beginning is the top of the picture. My stitches have gotten quite a bit better as I have continued on. Reading ahead in the pattern, I will have some figuring out to do on joining it together, and then on the stitches around the circle. It is all single crochet at that point, and I’m good at the stitch now, just not too sure on following the pattern with it yet.
I am actually quite enjoying the project. I have no doubt that this will not be the end of my crocheting. I don’t know that I will ever get to the same level that I am with knitting, but I’ve been liking it none the less.
