So I grabbed my lovely multicolored crochet cotton, cast on 60 stitches, and crocheted away.
Er, have I mentioned that I don't crochet often, and it's not my favorite craft?
I ended up with something that was very pretty, and hard as a rock.
I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but this is STANDING UP, on its own.
Maybe I need to check out a crochet book.
Maybe a I need a bigger hook.
Maybe I just need to relax!
