Some of you know I knit. I love to knit. It’s therapeutic and it helps me deal with my compulsive/binge eating: busy hands mean no time for mindless noms.
Well, it makes me grumpy that all the super adorable plushie patterns are for crochet, not knitting. Double-you tee eff, mate!?
So, I decided to pick up crochet last night. Because… fuck you crochet. Ima crochet all the things that I can’t (easily) knit.
Holy hell crochet is crap! I hate it! (Okay, that’s a lie… I just feel like it’s sooooo much more work than knitting.) I made a mouse last night and, in typical Bonnie fashion, took off running with my new found skill and just started my own pattern. (because… hey… who takes direction from people who offer it for free and make videos and suggestions like the awesome, sweet and generous people they are…? Right? I’ll crash and burn without help from the internet, thank you very much… Oh god… I sound like a man with a new and expensive toy: “fuck your instruction manual! I’ll understand it better if I break it before I use it, then have to fix it.”)
Anyway, here is my mouse:
And here is my “pattern” (ooooh, a triangle… DON’T JUDGE ME!!!!!) I’m going to make a bikini (quite obviously, starting with the top. I’ll figure out the bottoms later; after smashing my face into the proverbial wall until I figure it out or just look up a pattern.)
Anyway… that is all… I am boring and old. XD
