A while ago I decided to learn to crochet, and I have a blanket using the granny square stitch as a work in progress.
But today I had the urge to attempt to crochet something else.
I did have a pattern, but as soon as I got to the part of the instructions I didn't understand I decided to just wing it. (I'm not good at failing, and you can't fail if you move the goalposts!)
Practice makes perfect though, and boy, do I need more practice!
