I‘m ashamed to say that for various reasons I didn’t do a single stitch of actual crochet practice this past week (though I did buy a great bag with tons of zippered pockets in which to store all my crochet supplies!). Nevertheless, I went to my second crochet class at Beehive Wool Shop today and actually began to work on my project. After multiple false starts (have I mentioned how much I dislike the first row?!) I managed to get going on the ribbing on the wrist of the first mitten. I got a decent section done, then carried on and completed a few more rows when I got home. Still crocheting quite tightly, but trying to consciously ease up a bit.
I’m not going to bother posting pictures of this WIP, as it’s really not very interesting to anyone else but me at this stage! I will do so once the first mitten is complete, however.
