Most of the time crocheting for larger garments is pretty mindless and repetitive. You learn the pattern, and then you lose yourself for hours in the backwards and forwards. It's comforting and rarely boring.
But sometimes there is a little project where, for only an hour, you have to concentrate. And concentrate. And wonder how nuts the designer was to come up with this. And then you're done.
Pattern: Large Chrysanthemum from "Crochet Inspirations" by Sasha Kagan.
Yarn: Twilley's Freedom Spirit
Hook: 4.25 mm
Notes: I'm making this into a brooch, as I'm rather fond of it. I want to experiment with bigger hooks, and different yarn. Yum.
My next post is my 150th. I'm only making a big deal of it because I totally missed my 100th; my 4 year anniversary isn't until July; and it will be years until my 200th. Stay tuned - there will be giveaways!
