it only took me three months to get this pig in gear but here it is – its backside, at least. i’m learning as i go so that’s turning into some interesting moments. and i’m ashamed to say that knitting sure does bring out my, ahem, colorful language. i am not proud to admit that but who knew such a homey craft would bring out the sailor in me? some kids parrot their parents when they let things slip while driving; elisha will start squawking obscenities when i drop a stitch if i don’t watch it.
and on the crochet front – why oh why did i not start doing this years ago? movie watching is now quite productive, and asher’s blanket is very sweet. i must admit, though, that finding things to make is a challenge. i am finding that looking through most crochet books is good only for a few laughs – do people really make all that stuff? crocheted swimwear and coffee maker cozies? i’ll stick with blankets.
