In fashion with the never-stopping, hustle, I decided that my (limited) free time should be occupied by something. Crocheting! Ta-da! It's fast, quiet, and pretty mindless. I would have started tatting more, but this is something I want to do during lectures and movies, and I don't think professors would appreciate clicking shuttles. My mom used to yell at me at night for clicking so much.
My first doily. I started and finished this on Sunday after I finished my 6(!!!) hours of math homework. It was supposed to go on more, but that didn't happen.
I couldn't figure out the next row for the life of me, so I just tied off. It still looks pretty. This is #5 Pretty Pineapples from the book Absolutely Gorgeous Doilies. It measures almost 7 1/2", so it's not too bad.
I've already started on my next doily, and, unluckily for me, it had the SAME tricky stitch! Sneaky patterns... But I actually figured it out and only have 1 1/2 rows left on that one. So you will see it soon!
And since I now know that stitch, I will be reattempting this pattern in the future, since I really like the openness and the the tight, contrasting stitches, plus that pretty flower.
More to come!
