Tunisian troubles in crochet.

 

 

For the last few days I’ve been focused on my work for the Tunisian crochet along & for the past few days I’ve been failing miserably.
I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I don’t know if its even me, it could be the pattern or the yarn. My tension could be wrong, I could be misreading something. Perhaps I’m just not a great crocheter. That’s how much this pattern has got to me, I’m doubting myself 😒

When I first chose the pattern I noticed that a few questions had been asked about it but the designer hadn’t answered . I don’t think I’ll get any help there, it seems that others have had the same problem as me. It just doesn’t work right.

Todays it’s last chance. Today I’m starting it from scratch & doing it the way I think it should be done. I’ll be making notes as I go, in case my woes can help someone else in the future.
I’ll record my progress or lack of, throughout the day.
If, at the end of the day I’m still having problems, I’ll choose another pattern, close the door on this one & it’ll forever be the pattern that got the best of me.

If at first you don’t succeed…..

Its so tempting to give something up when it gets difficult.
I’ve started a new blanket, its a pattern that I’m not completely comfortable with. I’m plodding along with it, so far I’ve restarted it twice. I’m 90% certain that I’ve got it right, its looking good but there’s that wee niggle that I’m going to get half way through and realise there’s a mistake at the start. Since its a spiral, any early mistakes are right in the middle.

I’ve missed a few blog posts too, which is really annoying me. I’m a third of the way through my #100daychallange. But, I keep reminding myself that I’m establishing a habit, trying to find my voice and sharing my crochetness.
To be fair, I was planning to write one yesterday after going to see Logan, but I ended up curled up in bed fighting a migraine 😞  I think it was brought on by the pure sadness of the movie. As my youngest daughter would say – it hits you right in the feels.
So today I’ve been crocheting a spiral, chilling with the kids and watching Life on Mars. If Gene Hunt doesn’t chase away migraines nothing will lol. I’m going to stick with it, til the spirals complete.
