|a may rose complete with leaves ... yip, i even got game enough to hook up some leaves :)|
i have fallen in love with attic 24 and her gorgeous, amazing, stunning crochet designs ... the colours are just so cool! any ho, the other wonderful thing about her patterns was the stitch descriptions at the top of her tutorial ... lo-ve! for every stitch i knew exactly what i was supposed to be doing. so off i went with my hook and yarn, a cup of coffee at my side, attic 24 in front of me and i spent the evening crocheting and i didn't yell once ... didn't even throw the hook in despair. and a may rose i did create.
|this evenings happy place ;)|
|it looked right and i was starting to believe!|
|it even twirled around like it was supposed to ... my only issue was the flash backlash!|
|pride in the finished product!|
outcome: after today's endeavours i am really starting to love crochet. its been a rocky start and a long road of learning stitches but today i got it so much better and really enjoyed seeing my flower take shape ... insert little face of pride ;)
my sincere thanks to the lovely lucy of attic 24 for making my crocheting world a much happier, stressful place ... love her designs and i will be trying SO many more of them :)
