I'm from Chicago and I go to school at the circle of hell Dante didn't discover. I adore books, and I hope my appetite for them is never satisfied. INFP-T

I'm learning how to crochet, but it is not very easy.

Slip Knots

December 26, 2018

FREE WRITING

I wrap the yarn around my finger
(For the eighty-seventh time in a row)
Pull it through the hole
And get a balled up fist
Instead of an open, round loop
" Loop the yarn around two fingers,
and pull the tail half- aggh!
I did it again
My patience fraying,
I pick up the split yarn and try again
Loop the yarn
Around two fingers
Pull the tail halfway
Insert the crochet hook in the second loop
And pull the string taut, but not too tight!

Now to actually crochet

I think it's best I stop here
Before my thread of sanity snaps

    =) I can understand your pain.
    Or rather ... my sister can. I actually didn't really learn how to do slip-knots until a few years ago, but you will get the hang of it! =)
