I worked diligently on the lovely purple snood. Hours were spent making little meshes and I put it down for the night. The next day as I sat leisurely wasting time on the internet, Rusty came running from the craft room to the living room with something in his mouth and a looooooong strand of luscious purple yarn behind him. He’d frogged the damn thing back almost to the beginning.
So we started almost over and caught up easily since by now I was well practiced in how to do the pattern. Eventually I finished it with only a few more head-scratching errors and wonderment. All that was left was to put the elastic in and BAM! I’d have a new snood to sport and be all vintage-cute.
The only elastic that I have in the house is just too thick. It doesn’t work. Not even remotely. I debated tying all of the random hair-ties that I have in the house together so I could try it out, but the smart part of my brain vetoed that. So now I have a lush and lovely purple crochet net that is useless to me. Unless of course I want to go trap small woodland elves who are already tiny living in a world of nightmares.
I’ll be going to track down the right sized elastic soon hopefully and then maybe, just maybe I will have it complete and actually wearable.
