A friend of mine is a Christian artist who has taken on the challenge of drawing a cartoon for EVERY chapter of the Bible. He’s having a sale currently. Excellent material for sermons and Sunday School.
I found a fabulous pattern for a scarf on Ravelry.com, and I just had to make it. Work commenced on the 22nd June, and it started out looking like this:
I finished knitting the two halves of the scarf on the 6th September, and this is how they looked.
Then they needed blocking to hold their shape.
Finally the completed scarf is ready to go to its owner, who received it on 22 September!
Well. Writers “joke” about having a Muse who keeps feeding them tales to spin, but really, I think this applies to any craft.
I kid you not – this morning I’m busy knitting a shrug for my daughter (which, to be frank, is slow-going), and now I’ve got an idea to design something in crochet for a friend (after she’s come up with the paper design, at least), and to either knit or crochet a jacket for myself and my daughter (because it’s COLD here today).
Oh. Did I mention that I’ve already got two knitting and one crochet project in my craft bag? We won’t mention the countless story ideas I have on my computer – there’s an excuse for those: I have work to do.
Oh, and yes, I have been diagnosed with ADD previously, but I suspect this is something rather more serious…
