Sometimes crochet projects go well and sometimes they don't....

You can't be afraid to rip things out when they aren't turning out the way you want....

It was worth it....


  1. Well if you dont like them dont rip them out- just send them my way!! C

  2. If you like them -and you don't have to rip any part out - how long does it take to crochet a pair of socks?

  3. Well, if I have made them before I know exactly how many stitches to use. This speeds the process up quite a bit. If I have time to devote to making them I can make a pair in under a week.
