trying a new approach

I can't remember a time when I didn't know how to crochet. When I didn't have some kind of crochet project in the basket next to my chair in the living room. There is something so cozy and so satisfying about doing handwork in the evening, the day's work finished, settling back to enjoy something on the "tellie."
Up til now the patterns have always been printed row by row in words. Recently I pulled out an old pattern book that had a doily I wanted to try… written almost entirely in symbols! Oh dear...

A challenge for the little grey cells, to be sure

    I suspect there are many more opportunities for handwork in the evenings...until we can take a walk as the sun sets on a gentle spring day....
