One of the badges for this quarter at Eat, Sleep, Knit was “High Class Hooker” and that involved making a crochet project that uses at least 250 yards. For my pattern, I chose the Mitered Square Pet Blanket but didn’t want to deal with stripes so I just threw in a bit of different color at random.
I have friends who love to crochet. I do not love to crochet. For a brief moment, I thought . . I’ll pay someone to do this project for me. Then, I remembered . . be honest!
The pattern started out with “Ch 2”. My knitting brain saw that as cast on 2 and . . cast on 2 I did.
At this point, I knew there was a problem. How on earth was I going to keep going when I only had one hook .. not two? Thank goodness for YouTube so I went there, found a beginning crochet video and realized “chain 2” and “cast on 2” are two very different things.
I got through it and am glad to have it done!
It’s 16″ square. Instead of a pet blanket, it’s going to be a doll blanket for Addie.
My friend, Sarah, and I were talking on the phone yesterday and I told her I was crocheting. She said “Knitting?” and I told her no, I was crocheting and explained why. She said “It’s been a long time since I heard you were crocheting!” Yes . . like since maybe high school!
I’m glad to have that one done!
