I've been practicing the double crochet (or possibly the treble, who knows!).
It has sent me barmy looking at various videos and sites who, as I have since realised, seem to be using either US or Brit terms. What a crazy way to learn. Nobody bothers to mention which they're using. So I think I'm sticking to US, but I don't really know.
Either way, I've completed a project. Yes, that's right, only after about 3hrs of practice.
First, I learnt how to make a centre-pull ball from a skein.
And here's the first finished project, skinny scarf.
1 skein (approx 100m) black baby alpaca yarn (dk weight, I think)
8mm (size L) hook
4 rows sc
many rows dc
4 rows sc
Made while: watching baby play, chatting to hubby, watching telly, during cooking pauses....
I wanted to show it because I wanted others to know that crochet is easy enough to have a simple scarf this quickly.
Here's the tiny piece of wild grass found in the middle of the skein. As it's alpaca and it's spun in Peru, it's either from the alpaca itself or from the environment as it was spun, like from the spinner's coat. A piece of there over here. Stories entwined.
p.s, for those interested, the next new moonboard is just around the corner if you want to join in.
