Following Directions

I decided to teach myself how to crochet this summer/fall.  I choose crochet over knitting because I had a lesson in crochet when I was maybe 6ish from a grandmother I've only met a handful of times.  I figured that made me close enough to an expert and I should just dive in.

Anyway, the yarn I found on sale for cheap suggested that I make a sweater.  Who am I to argue?


  1. I can crochet. Never could get the hang of knitting.

  2. Cute! I've always liked crocheting a bit more than knitting. But that is because I was an awful knitter as a kid.
    Did you make a dog coat?

  3. 'Your' sweater looks great! Nice even stitch tension. Looks like it will fit too :)
    My Mom tried to teach me to knit when I was a kid. When that didn't work she switched me to crochet and I did that for 40+ years. 50 years later and with a lot of help from my friends I learned to knit.

  4. Well, look at you! The pandemic has it's perks - I hope you never have to drive to work again.

  5. You did a heckofa job, as usual! Merry Christmas!

  6. It's perfect! I've taught myself to crochet so many times, but it never sticks. I've made scarves and washcloths but then I got brave and started an afghan. Five rows in and I had a problem...that was four years ago and it's still in the bag in the closet!
