It is much easier to stay in ones comfort zone instead of stepping out and trying something new. Why put yourself to the stress of learning a new skill when the old one will do.
After printing out the free pattern and reading, I found that it was actually quite straight forward. Alternate single and double crochets, turn and do the same again. It was easy and I think it looks great. Benefit for a cup cosy is that it is more dense that just rounds of single crochet.
Sure, this is an easy stitch, but new to me. I'm glad I took that leap and learned how to make it. I can see myself using it again and again, especially as this designer has lots of free cosy patterns.
Which are you: do you stick with what you know or do you try new skills in your projects? When was the last time you learned a new stitch/skill, what was it?
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress
of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the
encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their
blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute
little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a
comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
