I've pretty much come to the conclusion that crochet (and quite possibly knitting, although I don't have personal experience yet) is all about problem solving.

I have a pattern for a shower puff. I made one in double worsted cotton using a HUGE hook. It ended up being a pretty rigid ball of crocheted cotton. Not the most transcendental shower experience. :)

So I re-grouped, ditched the double worsted and started again with plain worsted cotton and a 5.5mm hook. I got about 3/4 of the way through round three following the pattern when I decided that (a) the damn thing was going to be too small and (b) it was WAY too rigid. So I frogged it back to round one and pulled out my 6.5mm hook and used the increases for round two, then HALVED the increases for round three and added a round four with an 8mm hook and the same number of increases that I used in round three and added a picot to every third sc. It's now looking about how I want a shower puff to look.

Problem-solving makes my brain work.

Plus I don't kill people.

I think that's what we call a win-win.
