Hahaha, thanks! Yeah, less than a year ago I was nearly crying in frustration because I couldn’t figure out how to do a single crochet! It was just SO HARD to get the yarn to go where I wanted! Thank goodness for patient teachers, practice, and muscle memory.
Yaay, I’m glad you like them! I seriously am tempted to make nearly every animal in both of these two books, but I’m not sure what I’d do with them all!
And thanks for all the kind words, everyone! I’ve found that in this super stressful time, crochet is really calming for me. I still love making things with fabric and felt, but since I don’t use patterns for those, they take a bit more of my brainpower. Just following a clear pattern and using the repetitive motions of stitching the yarn really helps my stress levels these days, and I can work out the tension with tight stitches!
