I really don’t like it when people say “I have OCD/ADD/-orexia” about things (instead of legitimate, actual, true issues that a person’s dealing with), I just want to put that out there. However, I can somewhat understand when people say things like that. And at times I sort of feel like I might be a part of the crowd, especially when I get on the crochet train. There are a number of projects I would love to do, but also there are only so many hours in a day.
As a result, I tend to have a number of things on the go.
There are some tights that I’ve started making. Like when I began crocheting, I have a hard time keeping tension. These currently feel kind of bullet-proof (as in, woven intensely tightly!), and I’m hoping with some practice and time I will have a little bit more simple of a time using a knitting loom.
It’s not that I can’t “do” loom knitting, it’s that it’s just hard for me right now, because it feels so tight.
And this. This lovely, long-standing project I started in May or something like that. I currently have this huge, thick blanket on our bed right now and it was one that I was using up scraps to finish. So it’s really colourful and three strands thick. And it’s not that I don’t like it, but the size isn’t right for our bed. My original intent was to have my own blanket to sit with, but it ended up graduating to being a bed blanket. However, it’s only the width of the mattress, so it often gets fought over in the night.
My remedy for that was to start this new blanket that’s wide. It’s 2.44m wide (roughly 88 inches), and it will be a square by the end of it.
When I first started it, it was a double strand with a 10.0mm hook, and I ended up frogging the whole thing and separating the colours into their each ball. Word from the (now) wise: that was a really not-fun experience and I recommend that it’s a two person job. Or three. However many strands you end up having.
I like colour in my life, although not necessarily rainbow. After looking at tons of loveliness over the summer that is Waldorf-education, I’ve come to love rainbow coloured things. There are these amazing balls of yarn that are a mostly-blue rainbow set that I would love to tunisian crochet into a blanket for Bear, but I promised no more blankets until I’m done this one. And it could be a while
