I let Oscar play with my plastic set of crochet hooks while I tried to work on a project from my new Happy Hooker book. Clever boy set them up as track for his train which is about the most productive use for a crochet hook this house is going to see. I’m at best a novice crocheter but of course I jumped right into the deep end and tried to make one of Camilla’s wonderful creatures from the book. I thought it was going well at first but it just kept getting smaller and smaller and tighter and tighter. Is it supposed to take about 30 seconds per stitch? And are you supposed to be struggling and jamming to get the hook under the right loop? I don’t think crochet is for me. I am very proud of myself though, the book wasn’t hurled across the room but rather tucked away in a closed bookcase where it can’t ridicule me for a while. I think I may have my crafters rage syndrome under control.
