happy new year
2006 – 2008 were stressful years and the more stress the more i was crocheting. i could not really find patterns in dutch so i learned to understand patterns in english. mostly i used old patterns for doilies because i think they often have beautiful centers.
later i found diagrams that i could not understand and there was not much information available as it is now, although it is only a few years ago. i gradually got the hang of it, and now i prefer diagrams above written patterns.
i have done all practicing with a yellow shade (curry, mustard) acrylic yarn and the motifs are in a cardboard box in a closet. on the photos you see about the half of them.
recently i woke up in the middle of the night with the idea of making some sort of card for new year’s day.
the next day i formed words with the yellow motifs on the ground but it did not fit in the picture (only new did), so i made parts of words. i wobbly stood on a ladder with my camera and the light went from sunny to cloudy.
the second photo shows you a part of the first result and i am sure you can imagine i was not happy about it.
then i e-mailed jeroen who is a photo expert to my opinion: “please help?!” he mailed back immediately: “mail me your pictures”.
by the way, that was christmas day…
a few days later i emailed jeroen again: did you forget about my pictures? … whine, whine, whine… as if the man has no other activities. the next day i received an email from him with these results. quite amazing!
