While there has been lots of knitting going on lately, mainly for charities, my fingers have been crying out to do some crochet.
I have the yarn - Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Cotton, purchased gradually over 6 months
I had an idea of what I wanted it to turn into.
But I am a pattern follower, a bit of one I liked, a bit of another, and another.
Then I was not too sure about the colours I chose, it was limited, and not quite what I had in mind.
Then I kept thinking of what else I could make with this beautifully soft cotton
Round, and round, and round, I have been going for this 6 months
Until the urge became so strong, I just had to crochet
Stick with the original idea of bits of this and that
This is only the first part of the process and I don't like working it this way - Normally
But its great this time
This is turning out to be a 'different' project for me
Just in the way the process is working
You can also see in glimpse in the photo of a small knitting project, a pair of Pocketbook Slippers for a charity.
And another Kate Morton book (do you remember this one, The Forgotten Garden), only started it yesterday and I'm almost half way. I love her style. I love it so much, I went and got the hardcover of her latest "The Distant Hours". I was hanging out till next month to get it in paperback, but when it was so cheap, as much as normal paperbacks, how could I resist
Back when I was younger, I always bought hardcovers of my favourite books. They keep much better than paperbacks, and I am always careful with books.
Now to the dreams
I have been sleeping very, very, very badly lately and last night, after hours of tossing and turning, I had a mixed up dream of a PS3 Assasins Creed Brotherhood style game
it involved crochet and knitting, projects and puzzles
I woke up with a grin on my face
Wish I could remember it, maybe I could have patented it and made a fortune
By the time you are reading this, a very long held dream of mine will be coming true.
I will have visited every state and territory, even if only briefly, on mainland Australia!!!!
Much like some of my ancestors
But that's another entirely different post
I will be in the wonderful state of Tasmania - Hobart mainly!!!!
BTW - Happy Easter and a thoughtful Anzac Day
