Hypocrite

I saw this online.

I had to make it.

I've never crocheted before.

No problem.

Isn't this genius?   When crafting meets gardening

I got mine off Ebay

And then I bought a crochet hook online.

And then I searched for 'how to crochet' online

Several YouTube videos later and this is where I am at.


And this from someone who took away all the younger members of the family's electronic devices yesterday 'because you are wasting too much time online.'

Me?

A hypocrite?

  1. We are so lucky. I think you could learn to do just about anything from the internet.

  2. I love the colors! I have never crocheted before either. It looks like it is soft and plyable.

  5. Haha! Yes, I've seen "that" crochet-meets-gardening enticement, too, although so far have successfully resisted temptation (only becuase of all the previous temptations I've already succumbed to.) Your twine colors are gorgeous! I don't think falling down the internet rabbit hole is a waste of time if you end up with a lovely hand-made item as a result.

  6. My hands feel scratched and sore just thinking of it but it is looking good. I think that the internet is fine in moderation but sometimes you need to kick the kids out into the sun to move around too.

  7. Excellent idea. I love crochet but not the cost of yarn. I also love mothers who are as mean, and hypocritical, as me. Thank you!!!

  8. LOL! You are too funny, and unfortunately, just like the rest of us. As soon as I saw the tote I thought "I have to make that!"

  11. I’ve never seen such great garden twine! We are all the same, aren’t we! At least something good is coming out of your internet addiction!

  12. "do as I say, not as I do" - thats what my parents used to say to me! I tell my kids that it is too late for me, but there is still time for them! Is it rough to crochet? The colours are fab.

  15. That's so cool! I love crocheting but rarely find time. Wonder if we can get such wonderful twine over here. Hmmmmm. Now you've done it....

  16. Wow, that's impressive! The internet is definitely great at helping us learn new thing, but it can also suck all of our time too. Definitely a double edged sword!

  17. Haha - don't do as I do....

    Still good use of the twine! I bought some some years back at the Chelsea Flower Show!

  18. It looks like a great tote and I love the colors you chose! That internet sucks us all in :)

  19. Ah, but you are learning a new skill and making something useful whereas they, in all probability, were making their eyes tired and not getting enough exercise! (Oh, all right, they were playing; what do they think they are, children or something? LOL)
