I decided to teach myself how to crochet, mostly for kicks and giggles. But also to have something to do with my hands while watching TV with the Boyfriend (other than annoying/groping him of course) that didn’t take me completely away like reading does. I’m busy but I’m also still paying attention.
Let me start off by saying this…I actually really enjoy crocheting but…
I HATE patterns! OMG! why are they so hard to read!?!? I don’t want to have to learn how to decipher code just to make a pair of freaking gloves! argh! It is so frustrating!
And while I know that I need to grow up, not throw tantrums like the one above, and actually learn how to read a pattern, I really don’t understand why they have to be so complicated!
Any way here’s a shot of what I’ve learned so far. I’m almost done with a pair of fingerless gloves and the pattern for it is here and as a warm up I really enjoy making these little stars which I found here.
Any one know where I can make fun stuff without having my head explode from confusing patterns?
