Crafts are my passion, Cats are my obsession

My crafting adventures, my cats, my dogs, my opinons - I never did keep a diary as a child, but I'm doing it now!

Waste of time?

Some might think so.   Because I'm sort of on a deadline, I sort of think so.  I always used to. I spent 2 and a half hours last night working on a crochet baby blanket.  I picked a hook that was best suited to the size of the yarn, and did five and a half rows.... Realized that the blanket would be too stiff to be a soft baby blanket.  Ripped it all out, and started over with a larger hook. 

So, no progress pictures, as I barely restarted before it was too close to bedtime and I was too tired....

I consider it a learning experience.  Not really a waste of time.... But, considering I'm on a self-imposed deadline to get it done ASAP, it is a little frustrating to have done all that work and spend the time with nothing to show for it.  But, on the other hand, a larger hook means it will grow faster, so be done sooner with fewer stitches (first attempt was done over 151 chains, new one is only 101)and fewer rows... :)

So - that is my post for today.  Hopefully, will have more to say tomorrow (plus, tomorrow the second clue comes out on the mystery sock, so I need to take a pic of what I have before I start on clue2.)
