Purling Dervish

While the cat’s away…

She did a bunch of crochet. Shut up, my brain is melting.

I hung out at the lake yesterday and forced my momma to go over the basics with me again.


Hers is on top. We were using the same yarn, same pattern, and I had a larger needle.

I may have had tension issues.


By this morning, I thought I was doing better, but I kept on making pasties. Do you think I can find a market for that?

Someone suggested I try the magic loop crochet thing and I ended up with finger cots.


Yeah. Well.

What are all y’all doin’ today?


  1. Cheryl S. Said,

    With this heat wave, pasties might be just the thing to wear.

  2. Sarah Said,

    So, if it isn’t pasties you are aiming to crochet, what are you trying to make?

    I hope time at the lake is helping you. What did I do today? I do not remember. xo

  3. Marilyn Said,

    Yup you might have a bit of a tension issue.. 😉 Is the yarn wool…it might block out. Yeah…you maybe aren’t knitting with wool when it’s hot…
    Hope it cools down for you. We have cooler weather here now. Maybe it’ll sink down to you?

    What’s the magic loop crochet thingy?

  5. Angie Said,

    This could get interesting….. 😀 How about a granny square for practice? It may be easier to keep them flat.

    /there’s a bad joke in there but I’m not touching it.

  6. Cookie Said,

    Did you work it out?
