Although little K hasn’t show any interests to grab anything, I always feel very insecure to have her in the same room with those long sharp knitting needles, so I put my needles away after I finished the vest. It is much more comfortable to work with the large plastic crochet hooks with little K in my arms. (Maybe now I have good excuses to get a whole set of those interchangeable circulars.)
When I took my hook pouch out of the moving box, I didn’t have any particular projects in mind. I simply wanted to start something and finish it quickly, like the old days. It is natural to continue with this gray yarn. There is still a big ball left over from the two projects I already finished and it is the only thing lying out of my yarn box. Having gone through a few popular patterns on ravelry randomly (the pattern search/browsing in Ravelry is good!), I decided to work on Phannie mainly because of the front post double crochet stitches in the pattern. I don’t do post crochet stitches so often, so it was quite interesting to work on this small project. The making was fun, but the result is not. I look funny with any hats/caps and berets are the worst. Hopefully, the beret could find a new home soon.
I did realize how long I haven’t updated here when I was asked to log in wordpress *again* in order to leave comments on a friend’s blog. Little K is developing so quickly that I just don’t have much energy left to keep a written log or to get more craft projects done. The beret was done weeks ago. A terrible fever just got into my way when I was about to blog about this project. I would like to blog once a week or more, but that seems infeasible. I’ll try to start with update for at least once a month, which means I need to stay healthy and to finish some projects every month.
