I can't crochet. I have tried and tried, used books, pleaded with the fiber gods to let me understand how to make magic with one hook, but it was useless. If I don't have two needles I won't be making a thing. My crochet hooks are for simple picot edges, or weaving in loose threads on various knitting. Mostly I stare at them with disdain for not letting me in on their secrets to success.
There is one (actually two) reason I want to crochet. Queen . Ann's . Lace . I've wanted a Queen Ann's Lace scarf for as long as I have had a passion for fiber (it's not that long, I'm just going for some drama). My wonderful friend Mitsy has recently taken up crochet, and by recent I mean like two weeks ago. So you know I immediately pleaded with her to make this for me. So what if she only just picked up a hook again? And wonderful Mitsy said YES!
This will be mine: (only it'll look 10billion times nicer because Mitsy will have made it)
How's that for lucky!? I was going to wait to get my actual scarf to do a post about it, but I am just so excited that I am giving a preview of what is to come.
ps. The second reason I wish I could crochet is because I want a granny square blanket. Do you crochet? I'm looking for one in olive greens, mustard/golds, browns, and creams. ;)
