Do you craft? For fun? For the holidays? I crochet year round, but once the chill really takes hold my hands start to ache for projects.
I am guilty of giving my children less than perfect attention whilst daydreaming about my yarn and hook. Not that I don’t straight up sneak it into our days when I can. Oh, I do. But, sometimes I want to turn [something with Cary Grant instead of Kipper the Dog] on Netflix, sip some cocoa, and work up a project without having to worry if I have placed my scissors within reach of tiny hands. KnowwutImsayin.
Lately, I’ve been eking out time to work on a holiday gift for my mother-in-law.
I don’t often make gifts for people. There are just too many things I want to make for myself and my kiddos and not enough hours in the day. However, my MIL is sentimental, perhaps overly so, and I know she will truly appreciate a handmade object.
I am trying to take it slow and enjoy the rhythm of this simple project, but in my head I am always thinking about the next project or even the project after next. The only time Winter doesn’t seem long enough is when I think of it in terms of crochet projects. This is the yarn season, and the clock is ticking.
