I find when I get frustrated I work on miniatures to relax. I went to a show this weekend and was inspired to try to crochet in miniature. I already tat tiny things, so how hard could it be? Well, it can be hard! Needed to dig out the extra magnifier glasses so I could see what I was doing, for one.
The first try the scale turned out to big. not because of the stitch size, but because I hadn't made adjustments to how to do a certain look. Fewer stitches! Anyway, I did manage to achieve two vintage style potholders like my Grandmother used to use, after about 4 1/2 hours!
