I MADE THAT!

Just like I said I would.

And actually, it’s been done for weeks; I just didn’t have time to brag about it.

This is the first time I’ve ever followed a pattern all on my own and made something without my former Crochet Guru coaching me through the entire process. Sure, it was supposed to be a pair of socks, but details, schmetails. (Spellcheck isn’t convinced that “schmetails” is a word. Curious.)

I was feeling proud of it to begin with, but yesterday I was wearing it when I saw Mourtney, and almost the first thing she said was, “Hey, nice scarf!” And if you know Mourtney like I know Mourtney, you know that she does not compliment your accessories and accoutrements just to be polite. The girl is a fashion maven who takes her shoes very seriously, so the comment was the icing on the cake.

And it did provide that nice, “I’m not just watching TV like a bump on a log, I’m being productive” feeling that I like, so we’ll see what transpires next. Don’t hold your breath for anything that isn’t some kind of rectangle: scarf, afghan, granny square.

And now it isn’t quite so sad that it’s cold out, because hi, new accessory. 😀

I’m lame on Friday nights and I like it.

So guess what I’m doing. Right now. Go on. Guess.

If you said, “Sitting on the couch watching television, “ you get zero gold stars and 150 Obvious Points.

BUT, if you guessed sitting on the couch crocheting a scarf LIKE A BOSS, you just earned TEN POINTS FOR GRYFFINDOR!!! SHAZAM!

And if you have no idea why that is amazing news, or more like just kind of little news, or not even really news at all but maybe just mildly interesting, read this week’s other post.  Oh, and “like a boss” might be a slight exaggeration.

And yes, I recognize starting is not finishing but starting is half the battle. Or something. I’ll finish it, I swear! And you will see it and you will ooh and you will ahh.
