Cue Etta James people, I have finished the crochet egg project. My #4 list item was:
4. Crochet this one pattern that I’ve never been able to get right
And now, finally, its done. Back in March, I wrote not 1 but 2 minor blog posts about this: here and here. Tricky little eggs, these are. I mean, I’m no crochet expert but the concept here is really simple. Basically they are just one stitch that you repeat over and over again in a circle. Simple enough right?
After much watching of youtube videos, I finally figured out some of my initial problems. Progress is progress and I’m satisfied with these. My one complaint – Why are they soooo large? Oh, except for egg #6 – the last one – who came out much smaller, and much more shaped like a real egg. I liked him a lot. But why oh why is he different from #2-#5, who were all basically the same. Tension problems, for sure. Story of my life.
By this point, I no longer care whether they were all the same size or not. You see, these are headed for a 3-year-old girl’s play kitchen. And she won’t care. I don’t think. Ransom sure hasn’t brought it up as he carries them around in his dump truck.
Here they are in their carton. Cute, but as I was initially concerned about, the lid doesn’t shut very well. These are super extra large eggs, from large free-ranging chickens.
Okay, they look cuter in the picture than they do in real life.
But I digress. This list item is CHECKED OFF.
And contrary to the evidence presented on this blog, I WILL finish my list by the end of the month, each item address in some form or fashion. WILL. End of discussion.
