Happily joining Ginny and the gang over at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along.
Always feels great to finish something doesn't it? Just in time for Spring, I've been really enjoying wearing these. They put me in mind of another era : )
You may remember the first pair I made from this pattern. I made even more changes this time, especially with the shaping and they fit great. Slowly but surely I think I'm learning some things about how crochet really works. The learning is absolutely in the doing. I'm realising now that yes, it's really important to learn how to follow patterns, but just as important to learn to think independently about the project and be able to design a piece as you go and to understand how to make that happen. I think I need to keep a crochet project on the go now no matter what else I'm working on, just to keep those skills alive and fresh in my mind, as I seem to have a hard time retaining things, yikes!
