Hooked again (Sorry for the lame pun)

I'm giving crochet another go. My awesomely talented crafty friend Kristen was in town this weekend. While here, she helped me fix the giant mess I made of the afghan I started crocheting last winter. We ripped out about 2 hours' worth of work (in addition to the approximately ten hours' worth of crochet I ripped out last winter when I started to notice my rectangular blanket was actually more of a triangle. Sigh.)

I also just started the third book in the Twilight Series. I'm still not sure if I actually enjoy reading these books or if I'm just too curious to see how it ends to stop.

Either way, touche Ms. Meyer. Touche.

I'm planning on being rather scarce this week in light of my reinvigorated desire to finish this damn afghan. Wish me luck.

I just finished the first book and I think the writing is . . . well . . . simplistic. But you're right, it's the story that sucks you in, you have to find out what happens next.

Besides, the sexual tension is fun.

I don't know how to crochet, but I LOVE to knit. My friends make fun of me, but its so relaxing. Is crocheting hard?

like harry potter, twilight is a series i WILL NEVER be able to get into but it's interesting reading everyone else's opinions on it though.

good luck with the crocheting!! that's a skill i will never get the hang of.

haha yeah twilight has definitely sucked in everyone i know so far. and whether out of curiosity or boredom they all finish it somehow.

The third book was better than the second in my opinion.

good luck! also: i'd like to hear whether you thought it was worth it or not when you get to the end - before i start reading them, haha.

Oh, how I long to be crafty, but I have no patience what so ever! I need you to finish this project! I need to know it's possible. If you won't do it for yourself, do for me... a strange girl with a dream of actually finishing something someday!
