Good morning. After spending 12 hours in bed with no supper, an upset stomach, and a bitch of a headache I finally feel better today. I suffered a bloody nose and a feeling that I wanted to upchuck but couldn’t. The only thing I consumed during those hours were cups of cold water. (Talk about want to die.) But today I have a slight headache and I was well enough to solve one of my problems. Being an amatuer crocheter I find it difficult to follow a long pattern. When the instruction say to do the thing twice or more I get really upset about following them.
So when I read that I needed 233 chain stitches I started to panic. But I had bought the yarn and I (by golly) was going to make it. One of my major problems was losing my place on a long instruction so this morning I worked on that first.
I don’t know about you but every time I have to check the instructions my yarn gets in the way and I lose my spot trying to straighten things out.
A small clip holds a marker in place. ( Being an old information operator with the phone company I always used my marker.)
Now I am in business. But then I thought other people have this problem too. be it inexperience or old age so I thought it was worth sharing. I hope this helps someone.
Will I’m ready to pick up my I hook and get started. Talk to you later.
