I think I’ll just crochet the day away and tomorrow and the next day.
As I was finishing the project it began to rain. It wasn’t a drizzle either. It was a heavy rain. I continued through the rain because I really wanted to finish and I learned a couple things about yarn bombing in the rain. #1 It is a terrible idea. I had my yarn ball on the ground and the yarn got incredibly soggy and less manageable. I could still crochet the wet yarn just very slowly. #2 My tools are less useful in the rain as well. I use a plastic crochet hook and it became very slippery when wet making progress even slower. I had to try to protect my mini scissors as best as I could so they wouldn’t get rusted later. #3 Measurements are everything. My measurements were about 8 rows too much and that had a HUGE effect. I need to make references pieces before starting my measurements. #4 Yarn is very stretchy. When yarn bombing it’s better to have something a little too short because it’s easy to add more than to have to much and have to deal with sag and bulk; especially since you want your yarn bombing to be tight around the object.
