The Affirmation Project: Day 6
My Positive: Handy with a hook. After my mother-in-law showed me how to make a corner in crochet, I was off. My kids enjoy my handy hookery. It isn't rare to hear, "mom, can you yarn me a power up star?" or "mom, when you are done with Sam's star and mushroom, you can make me a penquin and fire flower."
Not sure when it really started or how I figured it out, it just happened. I made Sam a car from the Cars movie a couple years ago and just made it up. I think once I realized that if you think you made a mistake in crochet, just repeat it and it becomes part of the pattern. Obviously this is for fun items and not a lovely blanket or sweater.
I've always wanted a tattoo, but could only come up with a crochet hook and a ball of yarn. That's about as sexy as flannel lady gowns. My neighbor suggested cross hooks and a ball of yarn mimicking the jolly roger. Hmmm, I think we have something.
My Affirmation: I will write a book on Free-Style Crochet. Or Crochet with out Rules. Or Jolly Roger Crochet. Or My Monster Ate My Crochet Hook. Or Is That a Crochet Hook or Are You....
