The silly (or at least silly-ish) crochet jellyfish I have been working on have gotten their crochet tentacles thoroughly wrapped around me, such that I have not quite been able to let them go despite the fact I have a bazillion other projects that I should finish.
Part of it is that the project is eminently portable, which, at this juncture, is a hugely important consideration and makes them almost irresistible.
You can take them to baseball games, work on them in waiting rooms, or while you are at a coffee shop between errands, and if you work on just one, in very short order you can have something to show for your time.
Today, I did a little of both.
I had been working on a number of jellyfish using my substantial array of variegated yarns, when I decided that I really needed to write down the pattern and create a tutorial in case someone else felt an overwhelming need to make a pocket-sized jellyfish.
So I set aside my collection of partially completed crochet jellyfish:
and chose a crochet tutorial friendly color for the jellyfish and got to work.
In almost no time, I had the “bell” of the jellyfish done:
Then I added some features:
and got work work on the tentacles:
Soon, I had the pieces ready to be assembled:
So I did:
I don’t always know where my crochet journey is going to take me, but I will follow its path, moving forward one stitch at a time.
