About a year ago I started on a quest to improve my crochet skills. I wanted to get better at hooking, you know what I mean. Sometimes when you knit it helps to be able to incorporate crochet to be a more versatile fibernista. And I did use skills I learned on the crochet afghan to finish the building block blanket for Natalie. I am not regretting spending more time in the land of crochet, but while I am crocheting I am longing for my knitting bag sitting so lonely on the corner of the futon. You would think after the afghan I would throw away my hooks and cast on some dramatic knitting project and never look back. You would think that.
However, I still wanted to crochet myself some crazy tunic to wear over a turtle neck or something like that. Well, the something like that turned out to be the Cat's Cradle 2 by Doris Chen. I promised myself I would only join the crochet along if I could find the yarn in my stash. I found I did not have enough of one color, so I added another color for the trim and just like that I was in another crochet along. As always I was compelled by that inner product knitter to crochet my tunic up as soon as possible and with miles of chain stitches behind me, I finished. I even made it point to flaunt my project at a craft fair and a party all in the same day.
Now, I am saying this to you and anyone else who is listening, I done hooking for awhile, Christmas knitting is awaits me.
