So, there I was happily stitching away on my single-crochet-but-with-fancy-yarn scarf when my crochet book fell open to a page with cute crochet flowers! I had barely mastered the chain and single crochet, but I couldn't help myself, the flowers were just so cute! So I grabbed another ball of yarn (which I had purchased some time ago thinking I'd learn to KNIT -- ha ha), secured my scarf, and borrowed the scarf's crochet needle (it's the only one I have) to give the cute flower a try. Below is my attempt. It's not too bad, if I do say so myself. HOWEVER, it was supposed to have only five petals, not six, so I sure went wrong SOMEwhere! But, hey, now I can crochet in the round, and I've learned the double and triple crochet stitches! YAY ME!
I have the projects all planned and written for next week's podcast, and I think you'll like them. AND I promise to provide the yummy apple recipe this time, no excuses!
