Everywhere I go, this project goes with me. It’s amazing how much you can do in the moments-in-between-moments. That’s why crafters always find it funny when non-crafters say, “I haven’t the time for that.” You got to make the time, baby. That’s the only way.
Modern Art is back in stock. However, there’s only one posted at the moment. I have to eat some lunch or I’ll vanish, sooo for now, just Splendid. Coming in an hour or so, on Nirvana and Frances II. And, as always, available “made to order” for you on any base… oh, and it doesn’t cost more for special or custom ordering. Just what the yarn costs…
No kidding, crocheting a patchwork blanket is a lot of work. But where do you find the energy? I convert it from stress and anxiety. Yarn and hook are my conversion tools. And I can even measure the process: a day’s worth of stress and general anxiety easily produces about 3-4 squares. Those tense little fingers eventually work themselves (and your mind) into zen-like happiness. So, what if I’m having a tranquil, stress-free day? I bake, read, watch some TV, fold laundry, scrub the floors, file the bills…okay, where’s my freakin’ crochet?!
Stormy cold outside, but inside it’s starting to feel very much like spring. My ‘Bloomfield’ throw is coming along nicely. I’m weaving in ends and piecing it together as I go. (Single-crochet stitch join, because I want that gorgeous raised ‘frame’ around each square.)
My ‘Bloomfield’ (aka, ‘Hobbit Throw’) is coming along nicely. I hook a bunch of circles, then square them up and join. Although there are a number of other projects I’m eager to start (or finish,) this one has all of my attention. I’m excited to see it through!
I decided to whip stitch my African flower hexies together. The result is a very clean, very flat and pretty join. They’re stitched in ‘hexie flower’ groups to make the process more manageable (and more portable.) I can’t wait for the entire blanket to come together so I can curl up under it.
