I also hate the way it's looking with this Red Heart yarn. It looks thick and rumpled. Yuck. I may hold off and just start over with a different yarn. I hate the thought of that, but I also hate the thought of spending hours and hours crocheting and not liking the end result.
I think it would look better with a thinner yarn, but it needs to be thinner than worsted, but not light like a baby yarn. It needs some weight to it. Does that make sense? Any suggestions on what kind of yarn that might be? Maybe the Lion Brand Cotton Ease would work, but I don't know. It's still pretty thick, and there aren't a lot of colors to choose from. No purple for sure.
I really love the purple color of this, and the pattern is easy and fun.
I went and got a manicure and pedicure Saturday. It was just a spur of the moment thing. I hadn't gotten a professional mani/pedi in probably four years. It was delicious. I sat in one of those spa chairs, and it was the best mechanical massage I've ever experienced. Usually those aren't the greatest. The whole hour was a real treat.
There's nothing else happening around here. Same old stuff. See ya.
