wish my granny could help me with the granny stitch.
why is the Internet giving me a head ache? My studio building has very thick old cement walls and sometimes the wonder of the Internet just cannot stand up to history and cement. Agh.
Anyway, this week I have been working away at teaching myself and practicing the granny stitch. It has been a frustrating ride as crochet is so hard to learn from images and no helpful friend. Last year I spent many, many hours trying to figure it out and then one hour with my grandma over Christmas and the light bulb went off.
I have a sweet little project in mind for the granny squares- but really I think I just want an excuse to do a repetitive action with yarn.
I am much more of a knitter but I really think crochet lends itself more to my work so I am taking lots of deep breaths and trying to find my patience. And hoping a good one day workshop comes up.
Also started a new "test" embroidery yesterday of a still life object. A new direction that I am thinking of going. If I like how it turns out I have 2 large or maybe 3 still lives in mind.
And some other stuff in the works- I think I will wait until next week to share that news and resulting project.
Keep warm. It is dreary and wet here in NYC.
