Desperate times

So… Knitting has proved to be a bit tricky lately. My hands are busy with other things and I’ve turned a bit desperate at times. First it was the yarn purchases, I couldn’t knit so I surfed online yarn stores and bought yarn. I got a lot of yarn and some of it has arrived which was very pleasing. But apparently that wasn’t enough. Idle hands are the devils tools and my hands are idle. Or, not so idle anymore. It was evident that it wouldn’t be possible to knit, I needed my hands and I needed space, hands and space that I didn’t have.

When you have too much spare time, that’s when the good ideas come. And the desperate ones. I’m not a crocheter. I can do it when a knitting pattern calls for it or when I, for some reason, need a flower or something. But now, I realized that knitting was impossible but crochet might work out. So I surfed for a pattern and looked at the stash and when I stole myself a moment yesterday, I quickly found a crochet hook and I started.

And let me tell you, it worked! I can crochet together with Me Made! Me Made sleeps and I crochet and we’re both very happy. I get to craft something and that’s pretty much all I need to be happy. It started well and I hope I will finish but so far it’s actually quite fun. Who knows, there might be a crocheter in me.
