Whelm


There are days, like today, where I get completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of projects I'd like to do. This includes not only crochet (other people's patterns, trying to design my own), but cooking (banana bread, savory bread pudding, eggplant and tomato gratin), jewelry-making (the focus of my fine art degree), reading (oh, about a million books on the list), trying to re-do my storage room into the work room that it was intended to be...the list goes on. Days like this make me feel scattered and unproductive, because no matter what I did get accomplished, it's the stuff left undone that looms large to me.

On the "accomplished" list, I can include the following:
A Giovanna's Cardi from Lion Brand for my stepdaughter, Margot.

The Betty Shrug ambles on....


And the Chanson en Crochet, mentioned a long time ago in this here blog, is complete. Honestly, I'm not thrilled with it, but it has to do with color choice, or lack thereof...

I have a lot of travel coming up, so I'm hoping to get in some good crocheting time while in flight. Might also try to use the time to do some knitting, as well. I've dropped the ball on that and I really want to get my brain around it. I'll show what I've done so far, for your amusement, in a future post.

Till then....

All your projects are lovely! I sympathize with being overwhelmed at the number of project possibilities. It's hard to choose... Could you overdye Chanson en Crochet in a color you'd like more to wear?

The Giovanna Cardi is adorable! I'm sure Margot will love it. The shawl is coming ou really nicely too. I know what you mean about being overwhelmed. My to-do list is alot longer than I will ever be able to get too.

Thanks, Amy and Chris!

Hmmm, I think the yarn for Chanson is dyeable, so that is a possibility... The other thing I was thinking is to do another edge around it in a different color.

Of course, I can always just make another in a different color, but that takes time away from doing other projects... Oy.
