Now, I know I complained about knitting when I was first learning...but...crochet really is more confusing! Some people say it is easier, and I agree. But, it's just so...so...abnormal. I will persevere though. I want to make cute amigurumi and maybe start a granny square blanket once I figure out how to make a granny square.
Jackie gave me my second lesson yesterday, and with her help I made a mug cozy made up of single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet rows. And then she showed me how to make a cute scalloped border.
I attempted to follow a pattern last night to make a cute little crochet owl. It took me about 5 rounds before I realized I was making a slip stitch wrong, so my stitch count is probably way off. And I kind of winged how to change colors...so I'm sure I did that wrong. But, I am mostly proud that I figured out how to make a magic ring all on my own. With the help of YouTube. A French Knot for the eye though?? Yeah....that wasn't very successful. And as it was just practice, I didn't bother to add any safety eyes.
