I’m a tangled up Puppet…
I’ve been humming that song for a few days now, while sitting on my couch, surrounded by my new stash of yarns, while my Finished Projects pile up more and more on a shelf in the bookcase.
I’ve taken up Crochet again, and this time, it feels serious. I’ve learned new stitches, I’m finding it a bit easier to read patterns, and I’ve finished probably as many projects in two weeks time than I think I’ve started in three times as many years. It’s finally all making sense in my head! It is seriously quite exciting!
So if anybody was wondering just where I have been, and why I have not been posting as much as I was, it’s probably due to the fact that I’m on the couch, West Wing playing in the background (or Mad Men), buried under a pile of wool and acrylic yarn twisting and knotting my way to new and exciting objects.
I’ve been working on hats, I’ve finished up a small bowl, I’ve even got a trivet! two shawls, a scarf, 4 headbands (two with flowers), and an evening bag! A baby blanket and a baby hat, and an adorable stuffed snake! I’ve got one more hat underway at the moment, and a new shawl in the making. And after this, who knows?
I am getting good at this! And I am enjoying it so much!
Oh and on top of the crochet, I’ve got a garden underway on my porch! Mainly herbs, but I’m also growing lettuce and spinach as well! But that is a post for a later time.
I have to get back to my crochet! There’s a deadline for the shawl that I’m working on right now! I want it to be done in time for a wedding that’s in 2 weeks! Yikes! So it needs to be finished soon. So that if I don’t like it, I have enough time to find another pattern! I’ve done this once already.
This is possibly turning into a serious obsession for me. Which is dangerous! But oh so much fun!
