Surfing


My first wave smashed against the rocks.
My second attempt was a nasty, tightly curled little wave which this surfer was forced to dump before it dumped her.
Finally I figured out how to catch a good wave and now I am a happy surfer spending my evenings creating and surfing along on many colourful waves. I had been beginning to doubt the claims that this would be a very relaxing form of crochet, but once I understood the difference between a treble crochet and a double crochet and that I should be using the former rather than the latter, my stress levels were reduced. It didn't help that in some of my pattern books a treble crochet is called a double crochet and a double crochet is a single crochet. Surely it can't be that hard for all pattern makers to stick to the one standard. Enough complaining, it's nearly time to head back to the beach to enjoy another evening of catching waves.

Congratulations, darling! You are clever!! Now you must write this pattern down to save me the awful difficulties you had learning to ride the waves!! The rug looks so pretty.
