I've begun a new project. It's perfect for the evenings when I'm wanting to make and create but feeling too wiped out to really dive in. I crocheted a giant afghan for my parents when I was in high school, actually not finishing it until well into college. It took so long, the colors were fairly out of date by the time it was done. It was the end of crocheting for me. I couldn't imagine ever crocheting anything again.
It seems to be making a resurgence these days. I stumbled on the beautiful blanket on Alicia's website. That somehow led to Lucy's blog. I was sunk. The colors were so scrumptuous, the yarn so luxurious. I had to start. It has the added bonus of being portable and doesn't require sharp pokey sticks. Since my car accident, I haven't felt comfortable with knitting in the car.
After much surfing and exploring, I settled on trying a hexagon blanket. I'm using Lucy's instructions posted here. Since portability was an attractive feature of a crochet project, I'm working individual hexagons, and will stitch them together in the end.
He loves to sort and organize the patches.
I'm using Rowan handknit cotton. I would have liked to include more bright colors but they don't seem to be available. Next time.
