Crochet Project Roundup

I don’t really have anything to say today. The day is almost over and I haven’t even tweeted anything. Craziness. I’m blaming it on the crappy sleep I had last night. These days, if I’m not dreaming about my mum in my sleep, I’ll be dreaming about crocheting. Last night was one of those nights. All I did in my dream was crocheting. Not even sure what I was crocheting. Yet during the day, when I can crochet for real, I’m having trouble getting started. So frustrating. Though maybe it’s due to the fact I have balls and skeins of yarn all over the place. The idea was to sort out my yarn stash according to size but in reality, it’s not really that simple. Not to my untrained eye anyway. But I think I’ve got them all sorted out the best I could. Maybe tomorrow I’ll be able to come up with a project to work on. We’ll see.

I do have a long list of projects I’d like to tackle. Let’s see. In no particular order:

  • Granny square scarf. I already wrote about my love for granny squares yesterday so this is an obvious choice. But I also love the scalloped border.
  • Sock monkey and baby hat. Definitely considering making this pair for my niece. If you’ve been to our place, you’d know that I love sock monkeys and I love making them.
  • Flower squares. Imagine these pretty squares joined together as a scarf. Yes. That’s what I’m thinking. A scarf that’s oozing with prettiness like a double rainbow! Oh my.
  • Scalloped cowl. I think a cowl would be a good addition to my winter wardrobe since some of my winter coats have no hoodie. I’m more of a scarf and winter hat kind of person, but I’d wear this pretty cowl. Who wouldn’t?
  • Jiji the Cat. Just look at the cat. So darn cute! Though I’ll probably make one in a brighter colour. I’m not very good at crocheting dark-coloured yarn. I just can’t see the stitches!
  • Fun crochet border for paper and fabric. I used to wonder how to do this but now I know, thanks to this tutorial. It’s a useful extra knowledge if you’re into sewing or making softies.

Now that I’ve posted the above links, that might help me focus on my Christmas projects, and you might find or learn something new. It’s a win-win situation! :) How’s that for a blog fodder? But in all seriousness, I’m more of a linklogger instead of a writer. That’s why I started this blog over 10 years ago, so I could share links to sites and information that I find interesting with others, not so I could write about my boring life. I really should’ve stuck to sharing links only. This blog probably would’ve been less dead that way.

And with that, I’m going to wrap this post up. Two days done, 28 more days to go! Oh, in case you’re wondering, the time lapse video at the top of this post is from the family cottage up north. It’s a beautiful place. The video doesn’t do it justice.
