AMBRIDGE DUDLEYSPINNER HANDPAINTED ROVING/COMBED TOP
This is one of my most favorite crocheted pieces that I have ever made.
One reason I like it so much is I got paid to make it. Not directly to make it, but there was a lot of elbow time on this job.
Waiting for the phone to ring when you supply agricultural products is a long day when it rains, or the Kansas wind blows. I read stacks of books, Knit and crocheted to pass the time.
So I was allowed to knit, crochet or whatever I wanted as long as I could put it
down and answer the phone, take an order and do the paperwork.
One day UPS came rumbling across the scales. Merrill delivered a large bag of llama fiber to the office. I spent the afternoon washing locks of llama in the bathroom sink and drying them in my car. That was a hoot. Hey, while the boss is away the mice will play.
My boss had basically abandoned the place because he is an alcoholic with a gambling problem. His creditors would call continually especially on payday, Fridays. MR. spent as much time as possible away from the phones. I was there by myself 99% of the time.
So I crocheted this doily to keep my hands busy. It is a complicated pattern with so much counting, so it is not perfect by any means, but I did get paid to crochet it!
