What Went Wrong
So I've been growing in crochet skills by such leaps and bounds that I decided to whip up Alicia's Tiramisu Blanket with my leftover yarn from the little wreath. I love her blog Posie Gets Cozy. I visit nearly every single day; I never say a peep; I'm that much in awe of what she does. I just tried the button on her sidebar for the free directions and it isn't working (maybe it isn't working; it doesn't seem to be working; I dare not make any big pronouncements about blogging issues anymore). I went the circuitous route and Googled finding it *here.*
It soon became evident that something was going terribly awry. Awry.Terribly. I had paid no attention to yarn weight and hook size; nevertheless, I didn't want to start all over. I'm so immature that way. I have very few bad memories of my mother, but one is that she always, without fail, made me start over a project gone wrong. I'd clutch the whatever to my chest yelling, "Nooooooo" and she'd wrest it from me and take it back to the last good stitch. My thinking was so what if I'm wearing a crocheted vest that is a size 22 on the top and a size 6 on the bottom. What's your point? Hers was no daughter of mine is going to create such an inferior piece of work.
Anyway, the short of it is that I decided to finish up at the end of the row, practice the edging, and make someone else suffer with the results.
Don't let those pitiful looks make you think that she doesn't love it. ☺
For some time now, I've been wanting to write a private journal for my family. It would involve family matters and things only a family would be interested in.
I don't want to have that blog be attached on either end to my current profile. How do I get around that? Must I create an entirely new identity? New email?
Thank you for any advice you can give.
A happy Tuesday to you all...
