I've gone from hating crochet, to loving it.
So much so that instead of working on the 3 sewing projects cut out on my work table and the knitting project I started on Monday and really need to finish this week, I'm sitting here crocheting a market bag (base above!).
And I totally blame Kirsty for my second diversion ... I loved the idea of her crocheted cuff so much, I've been spending time online watching video tutorials for broomstick lace. I found a large-ish knitting needle and made this swatch ....
Just love the pattern that it makes and I now have a broomstick lace cardigan pattern on my wishlist (and larger diameter knitting needles!). I may need to practice a bit more before I dive headlong into that project - and finish all the outstanding orders and Christmas presents on my list.
I'm going to have to stop being diverted (OK - procrastinating, if you must have the truth!) and get back to some real work!
