I have become utterly obsessed with my latest crochet WIP.
The Nordic Shawl, from My Rose Valley. I am not even a shawl person, but I am crocheting like a woman possessed.
I add a few stitches in the morning while the children eat breakfast.
Tea breaks during the day include a row in the next colour.
I keep my project in the simple brown paper bag from the yarn shop. I transport it to music lessons, ballet lesson, waiting rooms, like some odd crafty bag lady.
I used the excuse of my crochet workshop to hook row after row into the evenings – it was Course Week 2 this week, and I was teaching half-treble and treble, so of course the shawl was the perfect example! They were suitably impressed, and quite delighted to know that by the end of the evening they had learned the skills to make one, too!
So many Nordic Shawls being made in blogland, so many gorgeous colourways - this obviously will be the must-have article of clothing for spring...
I will become a Shawl Person. Perhaps it’s the luxurious Sublime Yarn I am using, the wonderfully soft and ultra-smooth wool is a delight to hook.
Perhaps it’s the muted palette, in my favourite range of shades. I just can't stop hooking, I want to see what the next row looks like, then the next...
Perhaps it’s the promise of a pretty item just for *me*.
Whatever the reason, I am having fun speed-crocheting this week! The only reason this isn’t a ta-dah post is because I had chamber choir rehearsal last night, and I can’t hold music and crochet at the same time...are you wondering if I tried?
Have you ever been obsessed with a crochet project? Or am I just losing the plot?
