I finished some of these projects a few months ago but never got around to taking pictures of them.
First, a fuzzy scarf.
Then a lacy wrap. This was the first project I blocked. Blocking makes a big difference. (For knitting newbies, blocking is soaking the project in water, then pinning it all stretched out so it dries very flat and uniformly.)
I wish I had a big stretch of floor to stretch out the whole thing, but our house is very… uh… space efficient. Yeah, that’s it. Not cluttered. Space efficient.
So instead I take pictures of my projects on our grand piano — one of the only flat spaces in our house by a window.
Oh yeah, that’s one reason why we don’t have much space. That piano takes a lot of room.
Anyway, back to the topic. This is a project I finished two days ago — a lacy mohair wrap that’s super soft! This was my first crocheted project. I only had to start it over three times. And tear out many times along the way, now that I think about it. Ah well, I must have repressed those memories.
But now I know what “sc” and “dc” and all that basic crochet lingo means. (Single crochet and double crochet.)
