|Poor faceless (and body-less) Miffy...|
Compared to crochet (my first yarn craft love), knitting takes me at least twice the processing power and effort, and my results are... unreliable, to say the least. I know I know, practice makes perfect, but at that point, I decided that I just didn't know this woman well enough to suffer for her anymore. She was just going to have to settle for some speedy crochet projects... preferably something with lots of large holes! And what do you know, I was able to complete three patterns last night:
|Baby hat, baby mittens, and baby cocoon for taking adorable newborn pictures|
The acquaintance in question happens to be a photographer, so I figure that the baby cocoon will be even more special to her than a silly Miffy bunny that would take me 8x as long to make... :) And don't worry, Miffy will be completed in the near future and is still going to a good home, given that I have 3 other expectant moms to choose from!
