Too Hot to Knit, Too Bored to Crochet
Well, maybe bored isn’t the right word… But I am feeling decidedly unmotivated and uninspired. Welcome to spring/summer in North Carolina. It’s too hot (and will soon be too muggy) to even consider touching yarn, and the lazy weather has my brain neurons transmitting a little slow. I’m also feeling the post-project ennui. Every time I finish something large, I have no idea what to do next. Inspiration anyone?
Being the brilliant person I am, I also left my crochet thread at home. When my mother was pregnant with me, she spent her prescribed bed rest making crocheted ornaments (like the kind that come in a kit and you stiffen with a glue or starch). My mother is absolutely notorious for never finishing anything (she says so herself!) so there’s still a lot of crochet thread hanging around the house. Unfortunately, it’s all white, except for one thing of orange, and none of it’s labeled. (Grr..)
After a quick tour of my favorites on Ravelry (my best source of inspiration), I’ve decided to give Sheldon a try. I’ve been meaning to since I saw him, and this is the perfect moment. I’ll be using my trusty US 6 double points and some of that Vanna’s Choice Baby I have left over. I have the feeling that, if it doesn’t get used soon, it will Never Go Away. And, more accurately, I’ll be using Three US 6’s and a 4mm crochet hook because I managed to lose 2 double points. Argg. I really need a needle/hook roll. Really.
Anyways, if you’re willing, how about giving it a try with me?
