Hi everyone, here we are again a new Motivated Monday!
Starting off this week on a productive note.
Here is the 2nd week of The Crochet Crowd / Yarnspirations Better Together Afghan Summer Crochet Along.
If you saw last weeks post, you can see how much the blanket has grown.
I love doing crochet alongs with Mikey at The Crochet Crowd. I always learn something new. This week the new stitch was the Catherine Wheel. Oh my are my hands tired, but it really is a beautiful stitch.
This stitch I would not have touched with a 10ft pole normally, but I am sticking to my 2020 mantra of 'challenging myself' and I muscled through.
This stitch takes 2 rows to make the full wheel. When I first saw it on the picture this week and then realized what they were, I was a bit intimidated at first. I've read horror stories of doing this stitch and the wheels not coming out right. So I was a bit apprenhensive about this part. Well, after watching Mikey's great tutorial, understanding the counts and all the pieces of the stitch, I dove right in head first. I'm glad I didnit shy away from this like I wanted to at first. These stitches really aren't that hard to do.
As with most things that are challenging, it all comes down to having a good teacher.
Stay tunes for the next part.
Until next time, stay safe and remember the inspiration is everywhere.
