You would think that a person with a college degree should be able to handle a "SKILL LEVEL: EASY" crochet pattern... wouldn't you??
Well, it's not the case with this girl! I may be trained in reading architectural floorplans and specifications, but put a crochet pattern in front of me and forget it! I have a serious mental block when it comes to crochet patterns, and why I thought it would be different with these 'EASY CROCHET FLOWERS', I'll never know!!
After seeing those 'Plarn-look-alike' flowers the 'other vera' is putting on her bags, I was bound and determined to figure out how to make one though! Soooooo.... The other night, armed with a ball of my orange plarn, crochet hook, and laptop computer (for pattern!) I settled into my favorite chair on the porch, bound and determined I WOULD MAKE FLOWER! (okay... maybe not an identical 'flower', but a flower of some sort would be good!).
Okay, so here is the first attempt. My spirits were still okay at this point. I'll give it another try.
Attempt #2 (front right) is done.
I'm starting to lose a bit of patience with this.
Less than impressed.
Mosquitoes are biting
This is NOT looking at All like the freakin' one on the computer.
J just came out and gave it some backhanded compliment that I REALLY didn't need.
I think that is enough for day one.
Same set up ~ New roll of plarn... maybe yellow will make a difference.
Oh, and I'm giving up on the pattern ~ I'm winging it
Yep, I think Free-style is more my style.
#3 is still wonked out, but I'm getting closer.
Now that's what I'm talking about.
