Here’s Emerald, snake #2 for the Alzheimer’s Research World Record attempt. I used a self-patterning sock yarn, so once her head was done there was nothing to do but keep going around in a spiral until she was the right length.
It was an opportunity for me to slow down a little and look at how I was crocheting. There were a couple of extra jerky movements that I didn’t need in each stitch that I concentrated on smoothing out. I also noticed how tense I was in the jaw, shoulders and arms. Crochet shouldn’t take a lot of physical effort, but I had to remind myself to relax with every stitch. I even tried a little bit with my eyes closed, which wasn’t as disastrous as I thought it would be.
Emerald and Sniddy will be sent out when they have a few more friends to go with them.
Back to Kermit, who seems to have all the right songs.
