I was thinking of calling this post "feeling lost". Crochet has come to be my form of therapy.
A couple of posts ago I mentioned I felt the need for a bigger project. The only problem at the moment is that I'm currently yarn deficient for any major project. So I've been a bit lost as to what to do.
Anyway I continued with the smaller projects like the Towel Topper I have on my "to do" list. I had the cotton and the towel. I experimented with patterns and finally settled on the granny pattern as my favourite.
Some people hate these. Possibly they have been given too many dowdy ones from their great aunt Mavis -not sure. But I love them. I really find them practical. So I will endeavour to modernise the humble towel topper.
My husband did call me "granny" when he saw what I had done.
Another quick project to keep my fingers busy.
This necklace was made from a beautiful soft Jo Sharp yarn.
I had a play around with crochet twirls.
I still was feeling lost , so I turned to sewing.
I have been collecting all my son's T -shirts he has outgrown.
I've seen this done before and thought what a great idea.
But I am not a neat sewer and I discovered I don't like sewing T-shirt material.
It stretched as I sewed it.
It was frustrating.
Fortunately the recipient can overlook the wonky squares. He just see his favourite T-shirts.
It was a big project, but not a therapeutic one.
So I had to order some yarn.
Of course I did.
And as I keep saying to my husband, it is cheaper than going to see a therapist!
So I wait each day for the postman to arrive...
Until then I will check out what other creative souls are doing over at ourcreativespaces
