P Q R S is for Such and Stuff
I’ve been buying a lot of patterns lately so P is for patterns. You might wonder why I would need to buy patterns when I could probably figure it out myself. But sometimes I don’t feel like figuring it out. Sometimes I just want to sit and crochet and not have to pick colors or figure out sizing. Plus buying others designer’s patterns, I’ve actually learned a few new things, like a neater ending for crochet or how to add crochet flowers to a bunting.
Q is for Quicker. I’m always looking for a way to streamline my knitting or crocheting so it takes less time. But sometimes I just want to take my time and mosey along working on a more complicated design.
R is for Rainbow. And though I love colors I’m not always good at combining them prettily. So I’ve bought several patterns by ATERcrochet because I love her use of color. Plus her patterns are wonderful.
S is for Slip Stitch, my new favorite stitch in knitting. With it you can make items look like plaid, or tweed or bricks. It’s so fascinating and I have several things in the works using slip stitch.
That’s what I’ve been doing lately, studying new patterns and new ways to knit and crochet, when I thought I “knew it all”. I love learning new stuff so it’s been fun and relaxing.
