Last night I successfully followed a German tutorial on making granny circles, and this is what I came up with. I'm really happy with the way it turned out :) You can view the tutorial here.
I'm not doing anything for Halloween this year (sadface). I'm just not feeling up to it. I live on a really busy street, so kids don't trick or treat here, either. Tonight I'm just going to curl up on my couch in my pjs and crochet while watching movies.
I hope you are all having a great day!!
Oh! And I almost forgot... I have been trying repeatedly without any luck to crochet a flower. I have tried Katja's tutorial, this video tutorial on Little Birdie Secrets and I simply can't get it. I end up with this horribly misshapen little lump of yarn that resembles nothing remotely similar to a flower. What I seem to be confused about is how you do 3 double crochets into the same stitch. I don't understand where this "stitch" is, exactly, and I think I am doing them in the wrong place. If anyone knows an easier tutorial, please send it my way!
