You may remember that back in May I finally went to see the physio about my wrist/thumb that had been bothering me for a couple of years. Along with other exercises the physio prescribed that I crochet every day, beginning with a minute a day and building up.
I began by starting to crochet a small pot of flowers.
The pot grew very quickly even at only a few minutes a day. However crocheting pots of flowers is so not me. I just about got the pot finished, before I got distracted by a new project.
I’d been asking for suggestions about what to crochet/knit with my Blueberry Bam Bam whirl.
I’d been resistant to working on a shawl, because I never wear them. However, as the discussion went on I realised that when we sit out on an evening after a BBQ and I get a little chilly, I tend to grab the nearest blanket belonging to Harry and wrap myself in it.
Maybe I did need a did need a shawl after all.
I chose the Flower Valley shawl pattern – beware if you ever chose to make it, there are mistakes in the written instructions. Building up from my slow few minutes a day to more lengthy spells of crochet, I finished it in 6 weeks.
Of course in the six weeks it took me the weather became colder and I haven’t had chance to wear it. But it is rumoured it may be warm enough here for a BBQ tomorrow.
Hope you’re having a great week.
Until next time,
