So, I got out my yarn again. To be honest, the summer months are kind of tough (at least around these parts here) when it comes to working with yarn, because it’s so hot. If our living room is not cooled down significantly, my hands get so sweaty that the yarn is not gliding through my fingers as it’s supposed to, when I am crocheting, and that’s a real pain in the butt. But, last weekend I had this “itch” to create something and since J is running the AC most of the time anyway these days (the poor guy sweats much more easily than I do), I was able to start a new project. Hooray.
I am using Loops and Threads Cotton Club 100% Natural Cotton yarn (from Michaels) and it’s really easy to work with and it’s supersoft. I am also in love with the pastel colors.
Since I haven’t crocheted since last winter, I thought I’d just start with an easy, quick project: a round pillow case (with easy double-crochet circles) for the pillow that I’ve had lying around here forever.
I simply love crocheting. It is such a nice, easy activity that I can do while watching TV or talking with J in the evenings. It really relaxes me when I can do something with my hands.
What are you working on?
