My Crazy Chaotic Crochet Space

I need some focus. I’m going batty with ideas. I am crazy for crochet right now. Ever since I learnt how to crochet and discovered the possibilities of it, I have felt like a woman obsessed. Every spare moment has been spent hooking or at least thinking about it. And this week there have been far too many crochet projects started. Fixing the blanket and Maya’s little dress were the first but now I’ve got so many things on the go I can’t keep up with them all. Now I’m not one of those freaky people who finish one project before they start another. Oh no I’m quite the opposite. I have half started projects everywhere. And it’s not that I get bored with those projects, it’s that I’m excited to start new ideas. I just feel a little out of control with the amount of projects I’ve started. I feel like I’m in crochet chaos. It doesn’t help that I find books at the oppy filled with patterns I want to crochet. It also doesn’t help that I find so much inspiration when I read your blogs and get so many ideas I want to try. I am the sort of person that needs to get started on an idea right away rather than note it for later, otherwise I loose the enthusiasm and excitement for it. So, much of my time has been spent poking about inside my big doona bag full of yarns, sifting through trying to find the perfect balls. Trying to find colours that match other colours. Trying to find balls bigger than scraps. Crocheting lots of samples. Unravelling half of them ‘cos I don’t have enough of the yarn to “waste” on a sample. Then yesterday afternoon I went and purchased more wool yarn for yet another couple of projects that I hope to start working on soon.

Will this craziness ever end?


I hope your creative spaces aren’t quite so chaotic and a bit more focussed than mine!

(This is the one crochet thing I actually finished. It’s a hat the looks ridiculous on me but gee doesn’t it make a fantastic vessel?)

Have you tried to knit those little fruits yet? they are so cute or is that crocheting? I love what you've done!

Oh I so know what you mean, crochet is definately an addictive habbit. I love your triangles I learnt to do them last year and made this http://www.flickr.com/photos/kylieknott/4361271845/
I have about a dozen projects on the go.

oh I have exactly the same problem, especially now that I have learnt to crochet!! So many possibilities, so many things that must be tried. But if I find an idea I want to try I have to do it IMMEDIATELY, otherwise I will forget about it or find something else to start. Your crochet triangles are neat, what are you planning to do with them?

Bec said...

Mira Narnie said...

haha crochet is so addictive. I started a Hexy blanket a couple of months ago but only pick it up every now and then. Now I'm fighting with myself as to whether I finish it first before starting a ripple blanket or a crochet soccer ball :) Love the brightly coloured triangles.
