Right now, I spend most Saturday mornings watching my daughters at their gymnastics classes. One of the other moms there often had a crochet project out, and worked on it while she watched the class. I realized that was the perfect pastime for me, too, so I started teaching myself to crochet. My first effort was downright laughable. My second effort was only marginally better. On my third effort, I managed to make something that became a credible sleeping bag for my daughter's stuffed bear. That success made me overconfident, and I bought yarn that was too difficult for me to work with. I am about to abandon my fourth project, go buy some easier yarn, and try again.
