Just Call Me Prostiturtle
'Cus I'm a happy hooker. Look what Jeanmarie taught me at my Stitch 'n Bitch meeting the other night: I tried to con her into doing the whole thing, but being that she's nice, not stupid - she didn't fall for it. She did start me off, and patiently kept reminding what the heck a double crochet was, and I still screwed it up. But in a good way. You see, this edging is on the Pinwheel Baby Blanket. Sweet, huh? S'done. So, how did I screw it up in a good way? Well, you see, Jeanmarie taught me the shell stitch (and the Happy Hooker helped us both out) and when I took over, I promptly started doing 4 double crochets into 1 stitch rather than 5. So on the second round, I fixed it and did 5, then on the 3rd and final round I decided to do 6. This helped the border increase in size along with the pattern of the blanket, so it worked out perfectly and lays flat. Yay! Ripple approves. So as I'm taking the pics this morning, I see this out of the corner of my eye: Morris is in play mode. You have to be sneaky when he plays though. If he sees you watching him be kitten-like. All fun stops. So I casually looked away, and he pounced: And proceded to give that pasta-sauce jar ring thing what-for. Those things are way better than the classic milk lid. They're bigger, and can be caught in mid-air. And they're just as cheap. Heh.
