I've been on a bit of a break from knitting for the past couple of weeks. After finishing the present for my friend, my left hand was bothering me enough to make holding a needle uncomfortable. Probably a combinations of hitting my hand on a bannister hard enough for it to go numb and working with a mostly cotton yarn so much. Deciding to give my hand a break, I figured I would crochet a bit.
I've known how to crochet for a while now, but I rarely do it. Partially because, generally, I like the look of knit fabric better. Partially because I need to look at my work while doing crocheting, so it isn't as convenient. Now, it was the perfect solution. I get to rest my hand and I get to make some toys.
