It’s been a while and it will be a bit yet before I can catch up with you. I miss sharing with you but most of all I miss hearing about your creations! I have been sharing random yarn art projects to my Facebook page. Please feel free to join me there. Collecting project ideas is almost as much fun as visiting the yarn aisle 🙂

Looking forward to sharing my #wips here and hearing about your projects!!

Yarn & Tea: July ~ Time flies when you are crocheting. Part 2

I know why July flew by! I was busy and as the saying goes.. “time flies when your crocheting”. That is how it goes? Isn’t it? 😉

I was concerned that your tea (or coffee or wine) needed refreshing so I made July’s wrap up into two posts. {Part One can be read here.} So now that we’ve refreshed our mugs (or glass) here I go..

In July I have also picked up the  Sidewalk shawl that I haven’t worked on in some time. It requires me to pay attention to the pattern. I usually make projects that don’t have changes to the pattern for each row.

While I’m enjoying the pattern I find that I can’t work this project when my darling family is around. After all these years they still have not caught on that counting louder means I’m trying to ignore you / I’m focusing on this.

Talking about having to pay attention…

I saw this adorable zebra pattern at Repeat Crafter Me. When I posted it to my Facebook page someone requested that I make one.  It’s a lovely pattern, very straight forward with obvious colour changes. (I’ll write more when I’m done.) This will be my second amigurumi 🙂 I’m still undecided if I’ll make more. As I posted on Instagram, some focus is needed because the neighbours will wonder what the yell of frustration is all about.20170726_173829

Among other things on my social media and blogs I played with a new header and title for my Facebook page. It was originally started just for the pieces of yarn art that I sell but now I post a variety of crochet ‘stuff’ including blog posts from here. So.. it needed an update.

Perhaps I should tackle a few jobs around the house now that I’ve spent half of summer working on my crafts?

Whew! Now to get back to my PHD (projects half done) I seem to have started several again! Oooops.

How are your projects coming along? Did you finish a few? Start one or two?
