Crochet monkey see, monkey doWednesday, August 12, 2015
I haven't crocheted for a very long time.
A very long time.
I gave it up because I wanted to learn how to knit. You know, because you either knit or you crochet.
I hadn't realised that the two weren't mutually exclusive. You can crochet and knit. I know, gasp.
All wrapped up with ribbons!
I don't think people realise how much effort and love go into handmade gifts. Supplies - especially yarn - costs an awful lot, and then you have to make each and every stitch by hand. By hand. It takes a lot of time.
That's why I rarely give handmade gifts. First birthdays are special, though. You should have something extra special for your very first birthday. It kinda sets a precedent for all of the amazing birthdays to come.
