hi! Here's a peek at some examples of my winter sport...crochet.
I've been working on this granny square afghan for years now. I remembered
why after finishing these two sets of blocks above and after completing a half way
done set. When crocheting this pattern my fingers go numb, wrist hurts...the typical
repetitive wrist and hand issues most crafter/artists (carpal tunnel) deal with.
Now that I've completed (almost) the last two of 9 sets of squares, I can't bring myself
to finish adding the black borders so I can begin pieceing them all together. I will hopefully
get the feeling back in my fingertips soon....will let my hand recover for a bit, then I'm going to finish it if it kills me! Here is a photo of the first 5 granny sets I took ages ago.
Before working on the afghan, I crocheted this sweet cotton scarf. It's a granny square too. A pattern from a magazine that was supposed to be a purse.
I slipped my new book, Crochet Motifs in the picture too. I've not made anything with it yet, but LOVE it, the colors and shapes. So many ideas and inspirations.
I'll type more in a bit. ox
