This weekend, though, I determined that I needed to make some flowers (long story). I bought a magnetic flower painting kit, with the results you can see. Yep, I can't paint for toffee, either, but it was quite fun to do.
I also thought: why not make this my first crochet project? I looked in the books I had and found three different flower patterns, but came smack up against the issue that I just don't understand patterns yet. It's like I have a vague idea what ss, tc, dc, htc, and ch all mean, but when put with numbers and rounds and such I simply feel confusion.
So, I still can't claim to read a crochet pattern, but I do have a better understanding of how several stitches work, and can crochet in the round ;) Probably still need to experiment some more before trying a pattern, but I can hear a beanie calling me...
