You may or may not know that I love to crochet. Sometimes I like it more than other times and the winter seems like a time during which I crochet a lot more. The last couple of weeks, I’ve been crocheting up a storm. I’ve been told that crocheting and knitting help to occupy the mind through the coordination of the hands, the eyes, and the mind. For someone with an anxiety disorder, this has been a great way for my mind to relax and to just not think about the things I constantly worry about. I suppose this last week was a stressful one for me. K came back from his trip to Korea and the change in routine always makes me anxious and stressed. I’m slowly getting used to it and it’s nice to have him back, really. It’s always just an adjustment period. I took glamour shots of all my projects from this week 😉 I would love to share them with you!
This is probably my favorite project. It’s called a waffle stitch thermal scarf and I made it for K to go with a cardigan he got for Christmas from my mom. It looks great on him.
This next one is called the triple luxe cowl scarf. I used two skeins of super bulky weight yarn and I think it turned out quite well.
Here’s a picture of me wearing it.
This is a scarf I already showed you, but I want to show you again. It’s called the spring petal scarf. This one was very easy to make, only taking about 1 skein.
I also made my first hat! This is just called the easy crochet beanie. It turned out really cute!
I also crocheted two headbands. The larger one reminds me of something from the 40s or 50s and is very retro-cool when I wear it. I love it. The other is a mix between something that reminds me of a hippie and also of grecian times.
I’m currently working on a spring dress for my toddler niece and another scarf for myself with a beautiful color of yarn. I hope to finish and post them soon, if you’d like to see them.
All the while, Chester was watching me from his throne. He’s so precious and poofy!
Hope you enjoyed seeing my projects. You can find all of them with the patterns on ravelry.com and my id is mlmessme 🙂 Hope to see you there!
