I'm still crocheting . . . just finished a chunky Granny ripple afghan and am working on my Outlander-inspired cowl for my cosplay at ComicCon this fall. The ripple worked well and the cowl is lovely (I just need to decide how "tall" to make it.) I might even make an infinity cowl out of some of the purple yarn I used for my first ripple afghan. We'll see.
Mama and I haven't gotten back to our amigurumi; something else always seems to come up.
But my crochet keeps getting better. For the Ripple, as I mentioned, I had to learn to dc2tog and count. For the cowl, I practiced my foundation double crochet and both my front and back post stitches, none of which I've ever done. I never dreamed that one of the positive outcomes of my surgery would be improving my crocheting skills! I love it.

I foundation double crocheted 50 stitches to make mine wider. Then I worked the pattern till it was about 12" high.
