This was done last december 2007.

It was during those times that all i have was misconception on what DC is. I have this pattern on my computer for a long time.. can’t find the decency of time to sit back and crochet so, it was only during christmas vacation that i paid much attention to it… The author of the pattern copied it from a bedsheet and made it into a skirt… It was my intention.. to make a skirt too, just like this.

However, work (again) took control of my time and i was enthusiastic on finishing a project then… so my hobbies were set aside come new year. It was only late feb 2008 that i remembered some unfinished crochet.

And while i’m doing it, i decided to make a blouse instead.

And I am so proud of being able to do it

to rachel, pardon me for not being able to follow your pattern.. I wasn’t able to understand it. I only relied on the pictures of the stitches. Thank you for such a wonderful pattern.

I never had a real formal education about crocheting.. I mean, my mother only taught me of the basic stitches ch (the chain), sc (single crochet) and dc (double crochet).

From then on, i believed i was really doing dc correctly. You know, 2ch = 1 dc. And so i made all of my crochet projects basing on these stitches i know..

When internet has become a regular thing, i am able to browse through sites on different patterns.. Patterns = pictures of finished products, because i really do not understand the abbreviations of stitches so i rely on the pictures of crocheted patterns, and try to do them based on what i know.

Since, i only have time to browse the net for patterns, I copy them to word then print them at home. So when i get home and read the instructions, i got confused.. it’s like speaking greek to me… (:D)

It was only a month ago when i tried to download a book about crochet (and i really read the first few pages about basic stitches) which taught me what a dc really is. The single chain i do is the real dc! Shame on me… D

Imagine all the mistakes i’ve committed on all the patterns i followed… It’s no wonder it felt like i’m missing stitches…
