Pausing the Pause for a moment, to say:
Check out my first crochet notebook. A new flickrgallery of gorgeousness created by other crochet artists.
I learned how to crochet last week, thanks to the patience of my neighbour, and my dogged determination to not stop short of properly learning the basics, this time around.
Things are now happening on the hook, and things may get documented here, in time, too.
And there's a lot to be said for YouTube tutorials, when it comes to further learning of tricky stitch moves.
Once again, the joys of hand-crafting, combined with the joys of online-ness, bring a new juicy synthesis, full of inspirations and encouragements. I am so enjoying being a beginner again. Just learning.
The image: Not crochet hooks, but upside-down dragonfly-tail iron hooks, and some exquisite Spider artistry. There are a Lot of webs around overhere.
