Extemporaneously Kate

Everything by the seat of my pants!

And a little bit on Crochet.

Posted by Kate on 7:14 PM
I did some crochet today and broke out the old wrist support.  :D  I finished a meshy grocery bag yesterday with cotton.  Today, after balling a shit ton of roaming yarn, I decided to do this pattern.
Party Wristlets

I did one and it ended up all floppy and lame.  Now i'm not some sort of total newb who can't read a pattern.  I'm not saying i'm a goddess with the hook either but a pattern that says "easy" should fall into the catagory of "piece of cake."  It came out....well...  you'll see

Seriously.  WTF?  I redid it three times and still it was baggy and lame.  I'm throwing it into my scrap bag to use for later.  But my cat is laying on it.  -_-
dawww, i can't be mad at her ^_^

Anyway, Cat-ro aside (that's her name....i dunno why), that freaking pattern!!  I dunno what happened with that crap but that pattern was lame.  I'm not too sure I want to do another pattern from that site.  I had wanted to give this one a shot but in black or dark purple and carry a sparkly bit of thin yarn with it but I dunno if i want to do the whole thing and have it turn out funky.

We'll see.  In conclusion, here is one of our snakes.  My husband has some beefy mitts. :D

Yay snake!

Also, cool snake! :D Is it really hard to take care of them?

Yay snake, indeed! As for the pattern flub, I don't know what to say. I don't do much crochet, so I always mess up on patterns.

Maybe their calculations were just wrong?

I'm not sure. It was just disappointing.

Shame the pattern didn't turn out too well! It'd be cool to see your attempts at the jumper but I imagine it'd be a bit time consuming to get right if you're not sure about it!

Your cat and snake are super cute btw!
