Before I was a knitter with a capital KNIT, I was just someone who dabbled. I would buy the yarn for one project at a time, I never paid any mind to things like "gauge" or fiber content, and most of my finished objects were, let's face it, pretty crappy. But I didn't really care. I could pick the needles up one day, put them down after a few hours, and hot touch them again for months on end.
Back then I would also indulge in the occasional crochet project. Mostly I would crochet doilies or table runners, although I did spend about 2 years crocheting a 12-foot tablecloth, but that's a tale for another time.
Anyway, when I was going through my stash last week, I came across something I had tucked away over three years ago.
I think the last time I worked on this I was just pregnant with Maxime. So "just pregnant", in fact, that I didn't officially know I WAS pregnant. I remember working on it in a waiting room at the hospital one afternoon in August, and then I just... put it away.
As I was wondering what to do with this project, whether to frog it or just tuck it back in its hiding place, I remembered that I bought a great book with some lovely crochet patterns in Japan 2 years ago.
So there might be some crochet in my future! Maybe even make this a Ravelympics project? What do you think?
Happy Knitting (and crocheting!) Everyone!
