Longing to get some much needed crochet time.
It hit me a week or so ago that I haven't crocheted in a long time. A very long time. I felt sad. I truly did. There are two things, among many, that I love to do. Cook. And crochet. Cooking is a necessity of course. I have to do it (nearly) every day. So I get to cook delicious things. More so at the weekends because I get more time to really put my thinking cap on and get elbow deep in sticky, messy ingredients and it doesn't matter if it takes me all day. I love it. Crocheting, however, isn't a necessity and I've found less and less time lately to sit and relax and hook away until my heart's content. I have many, many unfinished projects. For example, I have a green crocheted hat that is sitting in my stripey crochet bag just waiting for me to finish it and add the finishing touches so that it can brave the cold and keep my head warm this winter. I have an 'in progress' crochet starburst-sqaure blanket laying limply in my Cath Kidston knitting holdall. Just urging me to add more squares and make it into the beautiful, cosy blanket that I had originally planned. *Sigh*. I've come to the conclusion that I need to quit my job and spend my days crocheting, cooking and baking. Yes, I do. Hmm, a girl can dream can't she? In honour of my unfinished, crochet projects I will post about them soon. And more importantly, finish them. Or at least attempt to. I will. Scouts honour.
