Rainy Days and Crocheting
Just some thoughts about rainy days and having time to sit and just crochet - I get lost in it. I'm always fascinated watching how different types of yarn look when twisted into different stitches. Just lately I've been working on "Mrs. Weasley" Sweaters, styled after a sweater worn by the character, Mrs. Weasley in the second Harry Potter movie, The Chamber of Secrets. The sleeves in the sweater are made from a conglomeration of colors and stitches. Well, suffice it to say, I've sold two already and am making more. Anyone who loves crochet will love these sweaters and they're fun to make. Watching the stitches flow, the colors and textures come together is like painting a picture, or molding a sculpture - it "feels" right. So on these rainy weekends, you'll find me in my room at home, peaceful with a cup of hot tea, crocheting one of these sweaters, happy with just me and my hook and yarns.
