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....
