She Said I Didn't Do It Right
Created By: Sharon Hood

When I was newly married, my mother-in-law was an accomplished crocheter. She never used a pattern and could crochet a beautiful doily in a very short time.

She came for a visit and tried to teach me, but she said that I would never accomplish the technique because I didn't hold the hook properly. Well the session ended quickly and I just gave up. One day I decided to make a granny square scarf. I actually accomplished my goal and it looked great. When she came for her next visit I showed it to her and she just looked at it in amazement. Finally, with a twinkle in her eye she told me I did it better than her. I was estatic because I won her approval of my technique.

Since I am retired I make bady blankets and afghans. This Christmas I made an afghan for two friends of mine. It was simple singele crochet squares and I appliqued a fabric design with my sewing machine that I made up myself. It was very modern and turned out beautifully.

I decided to make a journal that indicated the pattern, the choice of yarn and a picture for all the items I make. I then write a short story about who it was for. It's fun to go back and see how much I accomplished as well as revisit the story behind the project.
