Good morning all.
I haven't done much in the way of "crafting", but I have been tearing apart and reorganizing the craft room, so I figure that counts for something.
I've been having a rough couple of days, mood wise. It's my birthday tomorrow, and that's always a hard time for me to deal with. For the record? *whispers* Ptsd stinks.
Aaannyways...enough pouting, and on to the crafting I HAVE been working on.
I have been loving the loom knitting thing, now that I have finally figured it out.
I successfully made a scarf, but it was too short, so I got some more yarn in coordinating colors, took it apart and started over. I accidentally pulled the yarn knot too tight, and broke it, so I tore it apart, and am starting again this week. I finished the coordinating hat, and will post photos later today, or tomorrow.
We're in the middle of a tropical storm, and that means that internet is occasionally wonky. And yes, I am totally thrilled to have a tropical storm as a birthday present. The least they could have done is named it after ME. Sheesh. Those meteorologists.
I am working on a larger loom knit thing. Depending on how big it turns out, it's going to be a purse/grocery store bag. It's a gift for one of my housemates, so it will be harder to post.
Let's see... I have learned (sort of) how to crochet a bit. A friend sat down and taught me how to attach the strings together. So I sort of made a square. Small detail she neglected to mention in her tutoring? You have to count stitches, or you wind up with weirdly triangular shaped "squares". Needless to say, that got torn apart, and will be re-done, soon. But it is the first step to making my own cute little people. I can't wait!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
