If there is anything I must constantly remind myself not to do, it is inventing problems I do not have. Or, making problems out of the way things are.
Enough of that. This fall, I am determined that I am going to make one of these--
I love it, and this really should not be that difficult. Yeah, I remember, vaguely, a blog post about starting to loom knit, which I did not keep up, but I am slowly crocheting a throw for our couch in the living room. That I can do. That loom knit hat I started was another strange, harebrained notion; I don't need or particularly want a gray hat, and--every time I put that project down, I had to remind myself how to do it, all over again. In contrast, basic crocheting is something I learned as a kid and never forgot. And there are all kinds of new stitches to be learned by watching YouTube. How exciting.
See, it's as broad as my hand now, and can be sort of meditative.
Another thing I keep thinking I want is a big plastic "swimming" pool.
Perhaps, one of these warm days, I'll do something really different and visit the township swimming pool, instead of staying home to crochet an afghan. That's not a totally unrealistic notion...
