Failing better

I fully intended to spend today practicing my crochet and maybe even making my first granny square.  But I woke up this morning thinking about my 'M' and felt my conviction failing me.  Maybe I'd bitten off too much with the Merry Christmas project.  After all, I haven't a clue what I'm doing and the idea of cutting out thirteen more letters, stitching them and working out how to turn them inside out was suddenly quite a daunting prospect.  And I have three Rs to make.  Three Rs.  How am I going to do that?  How do you turn an R inside out?  (I know - these should be my biggest problems in life...)

So, there was nothing for it but to get on with it.  And this is the result.

I know.  Not an R, but not bad.  And it took only the morning rather than the day and a half the M took.  So I am learning.  Good.
And it's more or less the same size as the M.  I think they look quite sweet together.  (Even if I know I'll end up making two Ms when the time comes.

And as for the Rs, Mr. P came up with the obvious next step.  Do the easier letters first.

Crochet tomorrow.  Or not.  We'll see.



  1. Oh, they are lovely. Letters are so much trickier than they look, too. You should definitely find time for the Granny Squares, you will soon be addicted! I found the tutorials over at meetmeatmikes really helpful when I was learning. Thanks for visiting and for your comment. Look forward to seeing the finished words! Laura x

  2. Thanks so much. On a very steep learning curve, but I have to say I love it. And I am discovering a world of fabulous women out there in the blogosphere. Lovely and amazing. C.x
