I don’t know that I was actually in a groove before. But I’m starting to have bits and pieces of time I can call my own and I’m feeling creative again. Yesterday was the first time I’ve actually picked up a hook and crocheted in a long, long time. For some reason I seemed to be almost avoiding it. Maybe the snippets of time I have are so small that I felt overwhelmed at the thought of starting a project.
But as I started catching up (a little bit) with the fiber blog world, I saw Drew’s request for squares for Heartmade Blessings and I thought, “A granny square. That’s small. I can do that.” So I grabbed a skein of acrylic from my stash and started stitching.
Have I mentioned I’m totally, utterly, completely addicted to making granny squares? I could do it all day. Really. I love the rhythm and uniformity of it.
Just having a hook in hand has helped me start hatching some designs from ideas that have been incubating in my head for a while. I’m still spending most of my time with the baby, but getting the creative wheels turning again feels good.
