i love/ adore/ thrive with starting things. I love new challenges, learning a new skill, new is exciting… the down side to this is things get very boring for me quickly and i have a leaning towards not finishing things. Despite promising myself i wasn’t allowed to pick up my new, unused crochet hook until i’d finished my socks, i did! (Um … it’s three of my 12 things and because i am running out of time… and i went camping… and couldn’t very well pack my sewing machine… and i need to follow tutorials on the web to finish my socks… and i felt like it) i picked up a crochet hook for the first time and followed instructions in a crochet book.
Above is my first attempt on some pinkish op shopped cotton. Got bored with that pretty quick even though i hadn’t really mastered it! Tried a flower. Tutorial i used is here.
OK so it’s wonky and i can’t really see the 5th petal and it’s all gappy, but it sure made me smile to learn something new. I could feel those little neurons firing up at this new task! Grow brain, grow!
Now that i’ve broken the finish-your-socks-first-rule i can begin thinking about starting something with some very, very special purple fibre that i got for my birthday back in December from SIL. This wool is drool worthy, just worried i won’t do it justice… what to make, what to make… socks?
Are you a starter? Do you finish well? Or do you have a
house cupboard full of good starts?
