After my foray into crochet with the Elizabeth Blanket I decided that I was ready to continue with the hooking. I told this to N, who disapprovingly discouraged me from stepping over to the "dark side" where they use one stick with a hook on the end instead of properly using two sticks. So over the weekend I secretly started on my very first fully crocheted project and by Sunday night I looked down at my yarn and weird hook thing and there was this:
How could you not want to crochet if the fruits of your labour yields such an adorable object? I am in love with this penguin and I am really vibing on how quick crochet is. My thumbs are a little sore after my first weekend of doing this new activity but I've already casted on (does one "cast on" in crochet?) for a little amigurumi ghost. In the beginning when my friend taught me how to crochet I didn't like it. My first project was a dish cloth that was barely rectangular and was quickly frogged. These little amigurumi animals are a cinch because you're just crocheting in a circle. If you haven't crossed over to the dark side yet, I say leave your inhibitions at the door and go for it!Playing around with the light box...this "prop" is supposed to be an iceberg, in case you were wondering.
