Y is for Yarn.
Jennifer Trafton Peterson taught me to crochet at Laity Lodge.
Every time her husband announced the crocheting time and place, he called it knitting.
This is how I felt.Not really.
It just made me laugh. He was close — it had something to do with yarn.
I once had a friend teach me to knit. I completed one mitten. One very lonely mitten.
It still takes too much focus when I crochet for it to be relaxing.
And that’s what I was going for — relaxing.
But my hands start cramping up.
And my handiwork looks uneven.
And my eyes start complaining.
So I walk the dog instead.
Now that is relaxing.
