crocheting with jute is pretty interesting. interesting and slightly painful. but once you get the hang of it, it really isn't too bad::
look! it's taking shape now. this is the point where i have to decide to adjust the size or continue according to the instructions. i feel as though i could be close to seeing this thing through to completion. which would be so refreshing. maybe i will! and maybe it will lead me on to some fantastical finishing streak; where i will gather all of my piles and, one by one, finish, finish, finish! it's good to have a dream. wishful, wishful thinking.
