In the midst of writing out my holiday greeting cards, I have been working on a few crochet projects; thought I should catch you up my my most recent crochet projects. I made this nice little one-skein scarf with some Jimmy Beans Wool silk/cotton mix yarn. It’s soft and lovely. 20 rows sc, 2 rows dc, repeat using a L hook. I loved the yarn color when I saw it, and wanted to make something easy for myself. It is so soft. Why can’t all projects be like this?
I’ve also been working on a cat bed for Maxy. It’s slow going as I’ve ripped it out and started five times over. Hopefully the L hook is the key to stiffness. It’s my own pattern, and I’m not sure it will work out. It’s a learning experience for sure.
Maxy also got another blanket, as the blue one is now in a box in the office and he needed one for the couch.
2015 – what I’ve learned. I prefer easy projects I can do while watching Downton Abbey. Blankets are my favorite, followed by scarves. I started a tunic, and didn’t get very far with it. For crochet to be relaxing for me, I want easy and repeatable, like a moving meditation.
2016 – my goals. I have two baby blankets to complete in January. And I have a few scarf gifts I’d like to work on for volunteers at work in January/February. I’d like to make a lap blanket for a friend who needs a hug. I would like to get back to the tunic as I bought all the yarn for it and it’s just sitting there. January starts the last season of Downton Abbey. I’ll have to find something else to watch when that’s over. Love Downton Abbey. Love.
