On Twitter Monday, I announced my personal goal for the week was to "master" the basket weave crochet. "Master" meaning no longer needing to refer to the 20 minute youtube tutorial video.
After a couple of glitches - the first one realizing I didn't actually know how to do a double crochet (which I needed to do the first row) - I was in business. It only took about an hour of total concentration, viewing, rewinding, replaying, repeat, repeat, repeat before I got it.
pride. I did it. WA-HOO, as Daughter would say.
Well, I haven't done it in the sense that I've made an entire scarf yet. I've just done it in the sense that I can do it and WILL finish said scarf soon.
After this scarf is finished I'm going to master the puff stitch.
Ladies, Gentlemen, Children of all ages: I present to you THE BASKET WEAVE.
