First Impressions (Crochet)
Mom once told me that she felt badly because she often was too quick to judge others. She said, "First impressions aren't always accurate." She told me that people are usually amazing, and kind, and witty, and genuine, and that we just haven't seen that special part of them quite yet. I remember her truly feeling disappointed in herself and I told her that we all get these first feelings about a person, but it is how we interact with them that will show us (and them) that we're both amazing individuals. Mom was one of those amazing individuals and that this "fault" of hers bothered her so much, made her even more wonderful. I think what she was trying to teach me is that first impressions don't have to be last impressions. That is actually a nice way to approach these situations.
This wholesome picture of Mom is a perfect example of the majority of photos we have from her youth. However, if you've ever seen our Gutsy pattern, you know that she had a spark underneath that quiet and reserved demeanor... click on the link to see another side of Mom.
Your first impression of this unique crocheted pattern might be that it looks rather difficult, but when you take a look at the instructions, we have a feeling you will feel differently.
