Granny square pouch for my mp3 player
Crocheted Free-form bowl
That urgent need to create thing struck again, prompted by necessity in the case of the pouch for my mp3 player. The bowl was a frogged scarf, which I started but thought better of completing. The yarn is itchy (what is it? wool? acrylic?) and I would never wear something itchy around my neck deliberately. So, thinking it would stitch up pretty stiffly, I decided to try and make a bowl. In the not-too-distant past, I was often amused for hours by making fabric bowls, and so it was a natural to try and crochet one, especially since one does not wear a bowl, itchy or not.
I must comment on my lack of entries lately, if only to get back on track.
I started this blog, having an intuition that this year I would need to be reminded again and again to be grateful for what I have. I was so right. I need to be reminded again and again. In trying to create a good habit, the opposite has happened. I have been a very grumpy curmudgeon, feeling very put-upon and not at all inclined to see grace or beauty in my life. Most days it has been difficult to feel grateful for anything.
Well, I am endeavoring to turn my eyes outside of myself and my poorly-attended pity party, and to blog something, anything, that I can be thankful for. The content might be a bit light at times. But I intend to keep trying.
So, today, I am thankful for second chances. Even if it's the 50th second chance...
