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?)
