Crochet

Inspired by Russell Brand and The Crochet Dude, I've decided to crochet myself a scarf for my holiday.

I'm using my favourite colours: red, gold and green. I'm using a standard ball of red, one of green and two of gold. I'm interweaving the red and gold and will crochet with that until the red runs out. Then I'll switch to green and gold, finishing when my green wool runs out.

It's quite exciting. I only started at nine o'clock tonight (or just after) and it's already twelve inches long!

You know, dear reader, there's nothing like twelve inches to brighten your evening when the nights are drawing in.

Oh - how do you crochet!?! I can knit, but I've never tried this...

How maevellously gifted you are!... And, you know, crochet is a wonderful therapy, especially if you feel your nerves on the edge... Before entering a journey, for instance.
Oh I believe 12 inches will brighten everything, even the sunniest afternoon by the Mediterranean... :-)

I can't explain. I'd need to show you. I know nothing of the terminology. I learned through watching my Mother.

Perhaps, one day, if I can manage it, I'll upload a wee movie.

Ric, you're just a pure dirty bitch! And that's fabulous! Oh, and indeed it is great therapy. All your troubles seem to melt away...!

Good job dude! I'm proud of you!!

RIC said...

I beg your pardon!!! What on earth did I ever say that might lead you to such an outburst?! Dear Lord, this is what you get for being nice...
Minge, this afternoon I've wanted to thank for the explanation on your «fairy tale», but my server was definitely with some PMS, so I just had no connection. Thank you!

Thanks, Drew.

Ric, when I call someone a dirty bitch, it's a compliment. Sorry if you're offended.

RIC said...

Of course not, Minge! What an idea! I just forgot the «» I like so much for my silly, theatrical jokes, that's all. If you read that paragraph again WITH the «», I'm sure you'll HEAR the difference... (lol&lol) :-)
