Rough Crochet

This is crazy crochet, like crazy paving, since there was no pattern and I made it up as I went along. I had not picked up a hook for (redacted) years, but turned out I still liked it, and keeping the right yarn tension worked splendidly on my brain tension, as I joined up the knots--which is what crochet amounts to. So I did the other holes on this ancient cashmere cableknit cardi. As long as I held the hook comfortably, had enough light, and wore my very close-up glasses, it sort of worked itself. Then I finished with some rectangular corded Brussels stitch patches, which is, essentially, lace.
