Don't ask.... Won't tell.

I am having to institute a "Don't Ask... Won't Tell" policy. This is for my own sanity. When I taught myself how to crochet, I didn't think it would come to this... I hate telling people "No." But sometimes, it has to be done.

Don't ask me any of the following questions:

How did you make that?
Did you use a pattern?
Can you make me one like that?
Can you teach me how to make it?

As long as you don't ask, I won't have to tell you that I have no clue what I'm doing. I won't have to tell you, "No" to any of the other questions.

Here is why. I made this hat - LD is modeling it  for me. Kid has a big head because the hat fits me too.

I totally, TOTALLY, winged it. I have no idea what I'm doing. There... I feel better. So, don't ask and I won't tell. However, the hat turned out "acceptable" in my opinion... enough so that the scarf I made from the same yarn has been completely dismantled and will be reconstructed to go with the hat.

The only YES I can afford here is that IF I manage to make something that someone likes, I could say yes if, for example, they were to say, "I really like that, can I have it?"


  1. Jade - that's how I like to crochet too!! Just start and see where it leads me...some idea if i want to make a hat or a bag or something..but that CAN change :). In fact - that's what I Love about crochet ...
