Sooo I have an ongoing concussion, insert lots and lots of sobbing. I know it’s crazy! I slipped on the weekend and hit my head hard on the tiles. I went back to the doctors yesterday and I am not allowed to crochet till I am better, whenever that will be…. I also have to rest and not concentrate…. bit hard with 3 kids under 7. I am trying my best but going a little, okay a lot stir crazy. A crochet addict not able to crochet arghhhhhh.
So in the mean time, till I can hook again I will be thinking of all the wonderful things crochet related. No doubt there will be a lot because I can’t hook.
Here is what I have been up to until the weekend… hope you like it as much as I.
I started my first ever neat ripple blanket. Pattern by the lovely Lucy from Attic24. If you haven’t checked her out then you must. Go now right now. Well maybe after you’ve read this post.
I am using Bendigo Woollen Mills 8 ply cotton. And if you haven’t ordered any yarn from then you must. Such beautiful quality and the colours in the ranges are amazing.
Yes you see it right. Yarn glorious yarn! DMC Natura Cotton to be more precise. I was having a play with it the morning I hit my head. It has a beautiful texture and the stitch definition is amazing. And the colours available …. oh my goodness. So many to choose from. Yarn heaven at its best. This was my birthday present to myself, the best kinda present. I ordered it from Love Crochet.
I also started playing with the DMC Natura XL. Then my Constance Hall book arrived. Worth the wait. If you haven’t checked her out, you must (I see a pattern forming here) like seriously, this amazing woman is such an inspiration. Tells it as it is, like we all think but either refrain from saying or filter it before it comes out of our mouths. She’s on Instagram, Facebook and her blog, just click the link.
You know sometimes you can get the sense knocked into you. It’s true! Like whenI hit my head. It was hard and I got a whole lotta crojo smack-banged right in there. This is what happens when crojo comes at you when suffering a concussion. I made this before I got told crocheting was a BIG no-no. Needless to say it’s now made it to my wips pile. And it will stay there with all my other wips (at least they can keep each other company) until I’m all good and well again.
Thanks for reading! Oh and about my crochet along…. I obviously can’t add anything just yet. I will as soon as I can. Happy Hooking xoxo
