I think it's official. I crochet. My current knitting project is a big and wonderful sweater, but a bit too bulky for carting around here and there and everywhere. All the places I go. But oh, a granny square? Well, that's quite portable. And so I find myself with it in my hands all the time, even on the side of the nordic ski course. Nordic skiing being one of the most ridiculous spectator sports in my opinion, however wonderful it may be for the racer! But watching? Standing still in very cold temperatures for hours while not really even seeing much of the skier? Hmn. It could use some improvement, the watching of said sport, which can be achieved with just a hook and some yarn. At least my fingers were moving and staying warm(ish).
I knit these squares not really having any kind of plan for them - the yarn is a lot of my early handspun and dyed (koolaid made that pink!), so it's not terribly consistent, but fun in color and feel regardless. The trouble with that no-plan strategy is that I ran out of a yarn before I could even reach a finished something or other. But oh, the internet is a treasure trove of granny square solutions! And so, with most of this yarn now gone, I think a pillow cover this shall be, at 20" square, thanks to a healthy bit of blocking by the fire last night.
And then I can start plotting the next project, which just might have a plan this time. Or maybe not. There's something quite nice these days about one foot in front of the other, one step at a time, one crocheted square of yarn in a sitting.
Wishing you all a most wonderful start to your week!
