My unfortunate eldest sister

Whispering Gums reminded me in a comment, totally unintentionally, of something vile I did to Jocelyn, my most respectable and quite brilliant sister (there were once 5 of us, but now we are only 3).

The comment was regarding my completing a crocheted lapghan for Jocie – the one in two shades of grey NO NOT FIFTY !!!! – that I posted about here. A serious bit of work, of which I am proud.

However, the vile thing was this:

Heh heh …

It is in fact quite a good FO: the pattern got a bit tricky as the size increased, inasmuch as the number of 8s and 3s and whathaveyou meant I had to concentrate, or frog rows and rows. (Actually, I did that a fair bit. Grrrrrrrrr …) But the COLOURS, my dears ! – simply frightful !   :)

Trouble was that the American Yarn online shop in Melbourne had almost run out of this pertickler type/weight/etc., so I was limited to this or one that was grave-coloured – you know, greens and greys and blacks and stuff.

I did tell Jocie,up there in her Paris flat, that it was meant for her to put ’round her shoulders in the Parisian winter – only for interior use. Besides, I added, as she would need to be wearing sunglasses as well, it might as well be spring (even were she not starry-eyed and discontented …).

But I somehow think she’s never put it on. Pity.

    • Tsk ! – crocheted, Amanda – crocheted. But you can be forgiven: it is as if you saw me doing it, observing the way I use my crochet hook like single needle knitting. :D

      • My apologies! Of course it is crocheted. I was never any good at either craft. Crochet I did manage to make a super long string of single crochet once. Totally useless, but I did nail that stitch. Hah!
