I borrowed few books from my friend and I try my hand at crocheting for the second time (after unsuccesful attempt a while ago). I would really really like to learn to crochet... However, it´s still a little intuitive thing for me, as the yarn fibres seem just so many and sometimes it gets a bit chaotic :). I would like to be able to make hats, soft toys/animals, maybe a scarf or a blanket... but so far I´ve only made this little rectangle. It´s made with the most simple crochet technique (I think... unfortunatelly I couldn´t find how it´s called in English...) and I wonder why there is the pattern - it turned out structured, while I thought it will be flat with no lines. I´m going to read my books, but it always looks easier in the book than it is in real life :). One of the books I have is pretty funny. It´s called something like "Crocheting: questions and answers" (it could be also called "Everything you wanted to know about crocheting, but were afraid to ask ;), and it addresses crocheting as it was some kind of difficult philosophy. There is a long list of "special thanks to..." in the beginning of the book, and it´s divided in countless chapters with names like "Loops". Maybe I´m weird, but I think this is pretty hilarious :).
