Working on multiple projects simultaneously makes me happy. It keeps me from getting bored. Plus it generally ensures that I have something that I want to work on handy. Mostly these days I've been doing a lot of knitting. The one problem that I have with knitting is that I can't do it when I'm tired. Well I can, but I'm prone to making mistakes. And fixing mistakes in knitting is way harder than it is in crochet. I've learned that it's better to set it aside than try to squeeze out one more row.
This is the Reflections Doily. I found the pattern in the June 2013 issue of Crochet World magazine. It struck my fancy because I had recently purchased a ball of Aunt Lydia's crochet thread in Monet. It's not often that I actually have the exact yarn (or thread) that a pattern calls for on hand. Being a fan of crochet lace and doilies in general it seemed like destiny.
I started with a flourish, but quickly lost motivation. If memory serves, and history repeats - I got bored. The majority of this project is a simple V-stitch (dc, ch 3, dc). And so, like many other projects it was stashed on a shelf and pretty much forgotten. For months it languished, until last week. I needed something that I could pick up and put down without a lot of hassle. Turns out that this is just that kind of project. It also fits well in my travel bag. We'll see how long I stick with it! For right now though it's my "in between" project and any progress I make is a good thing!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me!
Until next time friends,
Be Blessed and Stitch & Read with Love!
