Even tho my mental state is somewhat wonky these past weeks, I am still making things. I have found crochet to be a very relaxing medium, and since we have no winter clothes to speak of (and will undoubtedly need them in our new habitat), I have been making warm fuzzy cuddly things.
I finally finished this scarf. I showed the start of it a while ago. I thought it would be longer, but one of the skeins ran out so I just ended it there. I'm happy enough with the length: it keeps my neck covered. And it's so soft. No more wool scarves for this girl!
This is a little hard to reconcile with the climate here in Singapore. Consequently, it looks totally dopey to me. But it is so soft and warm that I know I will overcome feeling silly and will wear it.
Or maybe I'll just enjoy feeling silly.
Actually, this hood looked so great on my daughter that I decided to make one for her, using white fuzzy yarn where I used blue for mine. I got started, but then I had to stop for a while because I was having a sore arm. That's the first time that's ever happened to me. Crocheting too much, I guess.
So, this is Spring Break Week, as I mentioned, and my daughter and I have planned the week out. I don't think I'll find any time to sneak into my studio, but who knows? She is planning on a sleepover tomorrow, so that might be my day. I'm thinking that the current quilt is going to be filed away for a time. I have all these great ideas of things I want to sew, and the UFO is just making me feel guilty. Maybe I'll finish that one, maybe not. But for now, I gotta follow my creative impulses. Soon enough the whole studio will need to get packed...yipes!
