Why can’t I knit?

Ever since I have been in Australia/found out  I was pregnant/it’s been summer I’ve not been knitting.

As you can tell from the previous statement I’m really not sure why I have not been knitting or picking up a crochet hook, but it feels a bit weird.

Does anyone else go through similar phases? I just can’t figure it out, but i’ve just not been in the mood, but as my other half will tell you it is very rare that I sit still (especially through a film….much to his annoyance!)

Anyway, having said all of that, the other night I did pick up a crochet hook and give the Grandma Twinkle stars pattern from the Royal Sisters a go. Maybe it’s because I am out of touch, but I just couldn’t get my head around round three of the pattern. So I just made it up as I went along and in the end I’m quite pleased with the results. Nothing to show yet as the ends need weaving in and they need an overnight starch.

I’m not sure I’m quite ready to get going with yarn at full steam but maybe with Autumn on the way it’s a start….

  • Thanks for your positive words on my crochet class. I’ve been practising and I’m slowly getting better but since I’m not a knitter I’m struggling with holding the hook and the yarn in comparison to my class mates. My teacher sent me an email last night with patterns and encouragement to get onto Ravelry but I daren’t in case I dream of somehow starting an actual project.
