The Quarterly Awards sounds so simple — crochet a scarf! Well, yes, that can be simple — but picking the pattern, picking a good pattern, picking a good pattern that you like — well, that has turned out to be quite complicated!!!
First, I spent HOURS scanning online images for a scarf that I really liked AND came with a pattern AND was something that I thought I could do.
Next, I picked a pattern, made a scarf and when all was done, I didn’t like it. It was WAY too big and looks goofy. Next!
So, I started again …. more surfing the internet.. more selecting… and I came up with option # 2.
So I started crocheting. And I made a scarf. … I don’t like it. … and there it sits in a lump. Next!!!!
Back to the internet; back to hours of sifting through photos, photos, and more photos …. and I chose option #3.
This time, (perhaps this is what has made the difference), I went to the store to choose yarn specifically for the scarf rather than just using what I had on hand.
The basic scarf is done .. and I’m still liking it. That’s a good sign.
Still more to do.
Crossing my fingers.
