My silly crochet for Messyfish to view...and anyone else who cares to!!!
My efforts to work with my MIL with crochet were trying but fun for us both. She could not remember how, and I had taken her to the store to pick her own needle and yarn, which she did. She just never could get the hang of it...and this was a woman who crochetted many an afghan! She was very fun though, laughing at herself and saying things like "I think I should win the blue ribbon for this"!!! We really had fun that night. While she fiddled, I started just doing single crochet rows about 12inches across. You can see the final product which was some sort of doily-ish thing for the table. I added a frilly edge on both ends...and it looked semi-decent! LOL!
I did love this variegated yellow cotton yarn though. I have an affinity to Sugar and Cream yarn (the brand name of this stuff). My problem with crochet or knitting is that it doesn't really pay to learn to do much with it, because we certainly cannot wear it down here in south Florida! So I just do a little fiddly-farty project like this on occasion...
