A Second Attempt

I started a new project just about a week ago. As it was a kind of busy week, I didn't get a whole lot accomplished...


What is it? It's part of a mask. Ideally, when it's finished it'll look like the pattern. (Due to copyright concerns, I'm not going to copy and post her picture here. It's worth it to go take a look, though.)

I don't need a mask. But, Halloween is coming. And I think it's so cute. I just had to try it. Again.

I tried it once before. A few years ago. And it was a disaster. But I'm a better crocheter now. The pattern makes more sense to me. And I'm further along than I ever got the first time. So, I'm optimistic this time around.

Wish me luck.

    1. I hope so. It's too bad the designer has said no sales from her pattern. Otherwise I'd offer them for sale.

  9. That mask is adorable! Check out this shawl. I bought it to wear on Halloween...we don't really have trick-or-treaters anymore, but it's fun to wear anyway!

  11. So cute with the mask! I saw your comment back to Paula about not being able to offer sales, otherwise I would have to think about buying myself one.

  17. That mask is really pretty. And to my admittedly untrained eye, it looks as though you're off to a good start.

  18. You are a clever thing. I wish I could crochet. I used to when I was younger but my eyesight and stiff arthritic fingers are a hindrance now. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    1. You'd definitely want to skip this project, then. I'm using a hook so small you can barely see it.
