. . . if I only knew how. I used to be able to crochet - and I mean that in the loosest sense possible. I could do a chain stitch, though once I tried to actually create anything the rows would miraculously shrink as I went a long in a pretty rapid taper. So I had a lot of roughly triangular pieces lying about until I finally gave up. That most likely came of being too impatient at a younger age to learn how to crochet properly. Of course, at that time I told myself "I won't ever need to do it anyway."
Which puts me in my current conundrum. I want to make a snood for my mom, because she wants one, but I can't crochet worth anything and according to her, the pattern she found involves crocheting with embroidery floss. Lovely. Which leaves buying one if I could find one, and I was so specifically hoping to make her something for a (belated) mother's day present. Belated because she can't decide what she wants.
Oh well. Have to keep looking I guess.
