This doesn't look right to me. Does this look right to you?
This isn't how it looks in the book.
I'm pretty sure I'm following the instructions in the book. I know I was at some point. Then again, I'm usually pretty sure I'm following a pattern's instructions right up to the dreaded moment when I have to admit my defeat.
I don't want to be defeated! This is a nice pattern! I feel like I picked out nice colors! A nice dishcloth wouldn't do this to me!
Is this how crochet ribbing is made? Is that something I should already know? It is?
Cool. That's super.
Here is a tutorial video for a front post half double crochet. Maybe if I watch it from another angle I'll get the hang of things.
Okay, I watched it. I'm still convinced that I'm doing everything okay. But I should mention that I took allergy medication and ate a greasy ham and cheese sandwich a while ago, so a lot of things seem very difficult and confusing to me right now.
Yes, I had Benadryl and ham before I picked up my crocheting. Why do you ask?
I think this dishcloth and I should just rest for a while.
