I can stop whenever I want, lol. Yeah right, I tell ya, crocheting is very addictive, and when you find yourself picking up the yarn and hook at the oddest times just to do one more row, then you may have a slight case of crochet mania. Hmmm. Personally I prefer to see it as making the most of your day and filling gaps with something worthwhile.
After successfully completing a Lucy bag and a couple of cushions, I felt a bit more adventurous and wanted to go on to HEXAGONS! I made my very first one, which was a doddle with Lucy's instructions, and decided it was a good idea to take the yarns and hook to the craft fair on the weekend. Crocheting is so easy to put down and pick up again without any probs. I did get a few strange looks, sitting there behind my display happily crocheting away when there wasn't anybody at the stall, and I managed to make 5 or 6 hexagons during the day. I had intended to try the join-as-you-go method, but as I didn't have a clue what I was actually going to do with them, I just made single ones.
Not much to show yet, but hey, its a start!
You know what, bloggers are pretty amazing people. Take Sarah, Red Gingham for example, she lives on the other side of the world, yet she has my silly blog on her blog list and actually reads it! AND is handing out an award as well. Thank you, Sarah! And Floss, Troc, Broc and Recup' in France, who was also kind enough to give me an award, and whose posts always make me homesick for our cottage in France. But I love reading them, I look forward to a new one every day. And so often, when I read other people's blogs, I come across my blog on their reading list, and it just make me smile so much, to think that they are sharing all the silly things I post about. Now, before I go completely soppy, I had better get the hands off the keyboard, my butt off the chair, and myself over to my work tables and start making soap! Toodlepip xx
