The Universe is Thrown out of Wack and then Realigns Itself

The universe cannot stand being out of balance, it will try to right itself at all cost.

First… The Best Saturday Ever

Then… I reveal my pseudo crochet ability.


This is the start of an amigurumi toy except I have not idea which side is the right side and wrong side OR if this is really crochet at all?!  Not sure it is crochet you say?  Well, the alternative would be some bastardized version of crochet like the last amigurumi toy I nearly finished only to find out I was doing slip stitch the entire time….LOL!

Wrong side? Right side? I have not idea…any help is appreciate from the crocheters out there.

So with luck on my side, crafty juices flowing everywhere, and euphoria right around the corner the universe decided that I needed to be brought back to earth and grounded in reality via a….Speeding Ticket


Same route for 4 years never a copper around but over the past 3 days since the issuance of my ticket I have seen 4 other people pulled over along my route.  I was also driving herd style with the rest of the “unsafe speed” drivers and was picked out like a young gazelle amongst a pack.  Guess it was just my time, eh?!  Good thing I was in such a pre-euphoric state that I just chalked it up to bad luck, lessons learned, feeding the starving economy, and savings jobs by keeping the very nice bike cop employed.

Hmmm…maybe my uber-lucky streak will come back and the cop won’t show at court so my ticket gets dismissed!!  Pipe dream maybe but here’s to hoping!

  1. You are so funny! good luck with the speeding ticket 🙂 The first time I tried crochet I increased too fast or did the wrong stitch or something to end up with a ripply circle instead of a nice flat piece. I am not a frequent crocheter, but I’d say the image on the left is the right side.

  2. that’s such a great positive attitude to the speeding ticket! no doubt it is just to get them more money. I know what you mean about crochet- my skills are so fledgling I have all sorts of beginner questions like that.

  3. I consider myself an advanced crocheter. Are you on Ravelry? If so let’s be friends. Otherwise you can see much of my older work on a blog i’ve moved away from. if I post anything new it’ll me at my new spot.

    Now that I’m done with my blatant self promotion, back to your project.

    It looks as if you are doing your stiches (single crochet right?) in the front loop only. This is not the right way. Well, if the instructions told you to do that then it’s okay. But it should be a general understanding that you stick your hook through both loops of the last stitch. Hope this helps.

    You can contact me anytime with questions. Have fun. Crochet is great so stick with it.
