Day 2

So I continued to crochet today. After yesterday's success with the granny square, I thought, "How much harder can a ball be?" Well, as it turns out, circles are a cinch, but for some reason, I can't wrap my head around the construction of a ball. Joining the 3D world is proving to be more difficult than I expected. Once again, I don't have the examples to show...I know, I'm horrible. But hey, if I showed you some pictures, I'm sure you'd be less than inspired to pick up some yarn and a crochet hook and start turning out balls and dolls.

On the bright side, I haven't given up hope yet. I'm still working on making that stupid ball and once I get there, I'll feel much much better. Aside from that good news, I also figured out how to make scallops. Very, very easy... I'm thinking about sewing it to the bottom of a tshirt or tank top...or using it as a border for a pillow! Oh the possibilities! I'm so excited.

(Excuse my appearance, I'm in the middle of doing laundry, and it's 11:00 pm...)

Oooo! Very nice...I'm surprised that it's really easy to do. The last time I crocheted, I tried to make a sleeping mask. Turns out that I don't know how to count or pick up stiches properly and the little blip for my nose ended up under my left eye. =P

Lol...I don't know if you did this already, but I clicked on your picture and it led me to your web album. So I put it on slide show mode and press next a lot of times really fast and it looked like you were doing a mini cabbage patch dance with your project. gave me a good laugh at work.
