I've tried so many times to learn crochet.
My home economics teacher gave up in despair, she said (and I quote)
"there is no order in your chaos".
A while ago I gave Nin all my crochet hooks and wool
and decided it wasn't for me.
But it bugged me that I couldn't master it,
and so I brought yet another crochet hook and googled a pattern I liked.
And before I knew it I had done a few circles.
And I had a basket of odds and ends of wool from my stash all lined up to make more.
I like it. I really do. And a lovely friend is coming by tomorrow
to help me turn them into squares.
Maybe 2014 might be the year I succeed.
