SO. After a lot of not much coming out of this blog I have decided to make it into my crochet journal. I was reading Pip Lincolne’s ‘Craft for the Soul’ and came across this great little chaptery part. By the way, if you haven’t read this book – you should, it’s totally great and gotten me out of the ‘creative rut’ more than a few times. Anyhoo the chaptery part was in Chapter 7 ‘Do New Stuff’ and says that when you are in a creative rut and you finally come up with a great idea, you should make a declaration and tell people you are doing it!
So that’s what I’m doing. I have decided that this blog is going to be my own little area of the internet where I can share a bunch of crochet things and nerd out about crochet with other crochet nerds.
I’ll share what I’m crocheting, techniques I’m using and you might, well, you’ll more than likely see some ideas in the making for patterns I’ll publish for free and for sale on Etsy.
Sounds good to me! Let’s get started. Maybe I should see if I can do I post a day for the rest of December? I might actually finish all my Christmas gifts if I hold myself accountable to that.
So right now I’m working on a hat for a Christmas present and I’m a tiny bit worried that I’ve made it a centimetre or two too tight but I’m pretty sure the blocking process will loosen it up a bit. (I hope!)
In any case you don’t want to make it so loose it falls off and slips down. I’m probably worrying over nothing. It’s not like trying on a hat in regional Australia is any indication of how a hat ought to fit and feel because I don’t even think I wore a coat this past Winter, much less a bloody hat. So what would I know. I’m sure it’s fine. Hell, if I was in a European Winter, I’d be thankful for a hat – any hat!
