Some mojo found



Isn't it lovely when you write a post about missing mojo only to have that inspire you to bloody well find some of it later that evening?

I went with Sarah's advice to do something fun first and I didn't even go with something on my list.  Not to worry!

I found this quick pattern on ravelry and decided I could probably whip it up in one evening.  Nothing works quite so quickly as a big crochet hook and a chunky yarn!  I ended up making a couple of changes - I added an extra round in the lengthening section and made the band thicker and a bit tighter with some decreases.  I like that I am at a level where I can make alterations to a pattern and have them work out successfully.

This is the first thing I have crocheted in a while, I've been busy knitting lately.  It was nice to get back to the hook actually.  And I think this is the first thing I have crocheted (and finished) for me as well!  I wore it out on Saturday for morning tea and with rain forecast for all this week apart from today I might just get a few more wears out of it before it goes in the cupboard for next Winter!

I still haven't done anything on that list.  But I'm about to go hang out a load of washing and then my plan is to get grouting while the sun is still shining.

Hopefully this is the start of a productive week!

mm, lovely! I have a similar crocheted hat that my mum's made me; I ended up with two of the same pattern in different colours because I love it so much. Wear it all the time in winter! xx georgi

It's delightful!! I can't get enough of chunky gray yarn like that!

Wow! That was quick haha. I think the chunky hook and big yarn was what I used to get my crafting mojo back last year. Something about instant results I reckon! You have done an awesome job :)
