Well, I completely borked the shawl I was making, so I left it a skinny scarf. Some things you just can’t save. I need to finish some of the project I’ve started (dozens of them) but I feel the yen to start something new.
Must. Not. Start. Something. New.
What are you making?
I’m working on shawls, but because I want them to be mindless so I can think, I get to the borders and stop. Borders take some concentration. This is why I currently have six shawls that are done except for their borders. The one I’m working on now is still in the repeat-the-same-row stage, and I’m loving it because it’s a great, simple pattern (ch multiple of 15 plus 10, break the yarn; ch 10, then repeat [5dc, skip 10ch/ch10] and break the yarn at the end of the row, repeat until you run out of yarn). And since the yarn I’m using is a crazy-colored cotton with lurex, I’m having a blast with it. It should take me through all the movies I want to watch this week (I’m studying super hero movies–Wonder Woman, Thor Ragnarok, Guardians, maybe Dr. Strange–because I want to), I should be able to work through the whole 800 yards just fine.
So what did you make this week?
I’m crocheting like a madwoman while it snows (AGAIN) outside. Also cleaning, baking, studying Hell, and writing a novel.
What are you making? (Doing, thinking about doing, deciding not to do . . .)
By now you’ve probably read that ReFab is shutting down because Krissie and I are swamped. But I’ve moving Happiness Sundays and Working Wednesdays over here so all is not lost. Actually, nothing is lost; ReFab is still over there to read the old posts, we’re just not posting there any more after Krissie’s good-bye on Sunday.
For those of you new to Working Wednesday,, the plan is to talk about something we’ve made on Wednesdays, and if we want pix with that, we post on Instagram using the hashtag #WorkingWednesdayPix. “Made” includes fiber crafts, painting and drawing, collage, baking, cooking, writing, gardens, fires, messes, and trouble. Pictures are not necessary, so don’t stress about Instagram. Continue reading
