I don't think I'm stubborn. Not at all. No way.
Of course there are some who would maybe, just maybe, argue that point somewhat - my husband, being one. Especially after he's listened to me muttering loud and long over the creation of this...
|White ribbon is not staying!!|
'This' is the a crocheted baby dress that I have wanted to make for the longest time and finally have a reason to. No, don't get excited, no more grandbabies on my horizon at the moment, but my friend is expecting a wee granddaughter soon so this was the perfect pattern to make.
Or so I thought.
It seems to me that any pattern that is published in a reputable magazine should have been tested prior to publication. You'd think. Well, this one quite obviously wasn't. Was.... not. The person that wrote the pattern not only didn't use common crocheting terminology, but she also left just a
LOT teeny little bit of room for 'creativity'. Ummmm - Creativity, in that I had to re-write the entire pattern!! There was much muttering, tearing out, and creative license taken to create what you see above. There were even a couple of expletives (I assure you, they were ladylike).
The end result is that I still love this little dress, but it's a one-off. There will never be another one.
I can only carry stubbornness so far, after all!
