Back To Hooking

My right ring finger seems to be healed enough now that I can once again pick up a crochet hook.  Sure my hand goes numb after about an hour of hooking but that is easy enough to remedy by hanging it downward.

One of J's co-worker's wives is pregnant for their third baby.  This one was as she calls it, "an accident".  Yeah right.  No one has sex by accident.  But she was on the pill.  So they weren't planning a baby.

Currently I'm crocheting granny squares to make a afghan.  Maybe I'll make an afghan to give to her.  Third baby doesn't mean a baby shower nor should it.  But since it will be her first girl I might make something just because of that.  I say might because we all know that I can only do just so much in a day and finding time to make something not for my shop costs me dearly.  No not in funds, but just time.

Maybe making a blanket for someone else will feel good.  I haven't made a crocheted baby afghan in about 14 years.  Karen's baby is now a teenager.  Scary to think about.

S's baby girl isn't due until June so I still have time to finish up the project with no promises as it will be a surprise if I get it done.  Now I just need to plan out how many squares and the background color for yarn.  I'll have to purchase the yarn of course for the remaining squares and background.  Oh what did I get myself into.  I have tons of yarn here already and none of it the right colors.  Obsessing much?

Whatevers~

  2. I have to start on a blanket for a new nephew arriving in July- plenty of time until then, in theory, but in practice... well, that's always another matter all together!

    I'm glad your finger is feeling better and you can start back though. Try not to overdo it :)

    1. I'm done creating the 49 blocks. I now just need to trim the blocks with the main color and join them together. I think I did too much last yesterday as I have a nice purple mark on my left index finger from the yarn. I just get so hooked on the crocheted that I forget to do anything else.

    1. It is a great way to keep my hands busy and away from food.

  4. How kind of you! I crochet, too, and my wrist gets SO sore. Can't wait to see the finished afghan!

    1. I have carpal tunnel in both wrists so I understand sore. If I can get a good chunk of free time in the next few days I'll have it finished before another week is out and post photos.

  5. I don't crochet, but being a knitter, I understand how easy it is to get caught up in what you're doing and obsess about yarn colors.

    I think it's wonderfully kind of you to do that for her. :)

    1. I knit too but crochet fulfills my need to see a quicker result. I started knitting when I was in high school. Crafting is a way for me to focus and still keep my hands busy which takes care of other needs for me mentally too.
