wow.. I am impressed! this is a hard thing to learn because it is so tedious, and most people cannot get the coordination to get it right.. and you made a SWEATER? I don't think you realize how significant that is BF!  clap  I am very impressed.

I too could not believe she made a sweater!  Not a blanket for the first time, talk about going for the gusto.

I love it too!

Aww thanks all.  hugu

I decided just to jump right in and go for a sweater because I wanted to know I could actually pull off what I wanted to do. Go big or go home so to speak. I have started one for Morgan but havnt sat down for more than a few minutes to do it yet... figure hers should only take a couple hoursvif that so I would like to devote time to just that. Been busy lately.

That is a beautiful sweater!!! The colors compliment Maiya's colors perfectly. not to mention turquoise is one of my favs.  Like wishy said the hardest thing about crocheting is the tension, once you get that working for ya' it's smooth sailing from there on in.  devilwink

 loveuk Awww that is cute and great job!  I love the colors too.  I haven't crocheted in a bit....it's always something I will get an itch to do but only for a short while.  You really can have fun making things with your own patterns.  Last things I made was some scarves...I like using the bulkier yarns and larger hooks.....makes the project go so much faster!  thumb

That is so nice BF!  I can't believe you did that for your first project.  I am very impressed.  And it looks great.... handshappy  You could sell them and make money.    thumb

Very impressive!   clap Can you start a group that knits, crochets, or sews stylish fashions for feather pickers in rescue? I could throw together the resort casual line of tropical weight natural fibers. Think of it as a fundraiser... avian haute couture runway shows! Get Tim Gunn involved!

Interesting suggestion, though count me out.  My fingers do not work like that and would end up sewing something attached to my flesh.  I will just stick to my cooking and let the talented ones have at it.
