    Last week my first Interweave Crochet magazine in awhile came and it ignited my need for crocheting immediately. Chris might tell you I went a little loopy. It really was that my creative energies were instantly channeled and I didn’t want to do anything else but do everything and anything creative right-this-minute.

    It was lunch time and I had to go back to work.

    So, I waited until Friday evening and decided I was going to start the Icelandic Turtleneck from the Crochet Me book. I actually started this once before three years ago when I was in Florida.

    Original attempt. I frogged this and started over. I’d missed counted and it was looking funky, plus I knew that the next time I picked up yarn might be awhile and I wouldn’t remember where I started, so in a messy ball it went. I have to thank my brother for winding up a lot of this for me….I believe we were camping in the fall of 2010 after we got back from the AT….I think the rat’s nest of yarn must have bothered him.

    As much as I have hopes to have this wrapped up rather quickly, we’ll just have to see. As long as the pattern doesn’t throw any brain tricking directions and I don’t get lost in counting my stitches, I should be good to go.

    I’ve made two other tops from this book: Lace top, and 5 o’clock tank.

    Back to stitching…

      It’s going to be great! I have a pair of crochet slippers I need to start again. The count is off somewhere and I need to fix it.. Currently derailed by wool so the slippers will have to wait! Can’t wait to see your finished sweater.

      Oooh, I’ll be excited to see the finished product! I’ve always wanted to get into this, but the counting is frustrating to me. Seriously, the moment I have to start to think in numbers, I’m done. Sigh. Looking good so far!

      Ohhh! It’s beautiful! I love the color!! I haven’t started crocheting “properly” yet- meaning, I don’t count stitches. I’m not there yet. At this point, it would ruin it for me. And I have been trying to learn how to read crochet patterns for the last week or so, but it’s SO frustrating. I can look at something and understand it better than I can looking at the pattern. I finally asked Tom to have a look at the book and help me decipher all of it, because he writes and deciphers code for a living. I guess I am more of a visual learner.
