🎶🎵Oh the weather outside is delightful🎵🎶
(My rendition of a cold weather song in the spring!)
It’s been a beautiful week here in Albuquerque (around 80 degrees F), and because of it I feel I haven’t gotten a whole lot done indoors! Having a toddler and nice weather at the same time means play, play, play outdoors.
However, I DID accomplish one or two noteworthy things this week.
First, if you’ve been keeping up with the blog, you’ll have noticed that I finished the v-stitch throw. It turned out so nice, I really wish I could take credit for the pattern. The only steps in the process of making it that I can claim as my own is figuring out how big to make it, which yarn and hook to use, and the physical task of actually crocheting it (not much, right? Lol 😉). Anywho…You can see my post about it Here .
Next, I finally made the decision to leave Facebook. I’ve been contemplating this for quite some time now. Having done this means there is no longer a Crochet On The Brain fan page. I am thinking about what can be done, elsewhere, to replace it (or if I’ll even replace it at all). I have to be honest, I feel like a whole new person without Facebook in my life! I did find a new social media platform where I can keep in touch with fellow crafters. It is called MeWe. If you would like to link up with me there just click Here. Perhaps I will create a Crochet On The Brain group there…hmmm…
Sometime last year, about one year ago I guess, I bought two skeins of Neon Stripes by Red Heart. After trying it out then I was greatly disappointed. It just doesn’t work up nicely when crocheted (although I’ve seen a few beautiful photos of it crocheted when using the color pooling method). Recently I saw an online comment about how this yarn works up nicer when knitted, so I decided to give it a try a couple of days ago. Below is a photo of a knitted object (maybe the body of a yet to be determined animal?), and beside it is the same thing (obviously not finished) but crocheted. See how much nicer the knitted object looks? So now I am pondering what to make with it.
Lastly, since I mentioned that the weather outside is so delightful, here’s a couple of pics of my daughter enjoying being outdoors! (When she tried to get out of the tree her shoe became wedged and I had to lift her out, lol).
And so this wraps up today’s Weekly Update. I’m hoping to get a bit more yarn play in this week, but we will see.
Until next time, Happy Hooking! And don’t forget to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine 🌸🐞🐛🌻🌳🏄♀️🏌️♀️☀️
