Last year I went a bit mad with the crochet, both in terms of what I created and what inspired me. But since Little Man has been born my crafting time has been severely limited.
And that is as it should be, of course. But I have missed it.
So it has been nice to find a bit more time to crochet of late. I've discovered that if I give Little Man a spare ball of yarn to play with he is generally happy to let me crochet in peace for a while. Which has meant I have been able to work on the huge crochet blanket I started making for my sister-in-law's baby, finally getting it finished (to be revealed soon!)
I did the very same thing just the other day with this hat. I like little projects like this which I made for one of TJ's colleagues who is expecting a baby very soon. They work up so quickly and make me remember that even though the big projects like the blanket can be so daunting at times, they are worth it for the end result.
I can feel the passion for crochet creeping up inside me one more, making my fingers twitch to grab hold of the hook and yarn and just go for it. And having let go of that need for "perfection" it is all the more enjoyable now.
Tell me, what are you working on right now?
