After felt, Snackluck began
crafting with yarn. Since Danielle is a crocheting fiend, we started
there, but there might be knitting in our futures. The last time I
crocheted was in middle school or something, so I was happy to try it
The pattern is simple, and the result is pretty cute.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but it was a good start.
Natalie, meanwhile, made a pretty rocking squid from this pattern. I fancied having one of my own, so after a fair amount of cursing and unraveling I eventually emerged from a Lost marathon with a crocheted squid. Once I understood the pattern it was a whole lot easier. I may make another one in the future... I might even remember to take pictures of the process!
Next up I think I'll make some of the little dudes from Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots, and More!. This book has pattern diagrams similar to some I found in Japanese crocheting books, so hopefully it can serve as a sort of Rosetta Stone and help bridge the language barrier.
