Welcome to another Wool on Sundays :)
And thank you very much to everyone who commented last week and shared ways of prioritising craft projects. Before I had a blog I would really struggled to finish a large yarn project because I would start out with a lot of enthusiasm, keep going for a while, get interrupted by other things, lose momentum, get sick of the sight of it and another UFO was born. Ironically, now, I have a very low UFO tolerance. I’m much happier, once I’ve started something to keep going and going through all the getting-worse-before-it-gets-better stages until it gets done. Otherwise the unfinishedness weighs on me and I find it hard to settle to new projects because I always feel I should be finishing the last one. I fear, however, that makes for very boring Wool on Sundays posts so, today, rather than show that blanket again, I thought I’d tell you 5 Reasons I LOVE crochet.1. It is a always wonder to me that balls of yarn can transforms into a objects.
2. I see myself as a person who can’t really crochet (my first finish, shown in Mrs Freer! I have made something! was only two years ago) so I excuse myself for all my mistakes.
3. I’m always coming across new ideas.
4. It’s very well suited to small decorative items so it’s fairly quick and inexpensive to try out new stitches and techniques.
5. So long as you are happy to work a bit and frog a bit, there are endless possibilities for new discoveries in texture…
… and shape – I never in a million years thought I could crochet a hare!

Have you really only been crocheting for two years…..unbelievable! So you think there is some hope for me. I can't seem to hold the wool correctly. I am a tight knitter, so holding the wool for crochet is a tad problematical, but I will persist. Let me tell you five things why I love to visit you each Sunday. Your posts are always filled with bright happy colour…indeed your eye for colour is a talent. You always seem to crochet lovely projects….I will never tire of looking at your lovely afghans. You have a wonderful wit. I think you were created to tell stories…..for example the adventures of Granny Square, Purl and Knit. And lastly (although there many other reasons to stop over your place) you inspire me, just looking at your crochet hare is inspiration enough…and that purse….wow oh wow!! Oh……by the way, I am delighted you sorted out your organisation issues. Have a lovely week…happy crocheting! =)
That hare is so cute! Great job.
I'm definitely a knitter, although I have tried crochet. I have to say that yours is absolutely gorgeous, your colours are to die for! Beautiful work, thank you so much for sharing <3

I love crochet and much prefer it to knitting. Crochet seems so much easier, but I LOVE the look of knitted lace. I always think I'll try to learn to knit better, but realistically I need INSTANT gratification so I continue to crochet. I am currently making a temperature afghan and will link here when I post my first progress report at the beginning of February.

It is hard to believe that you have been crocheting only for two years, your projects are so varied and beautiful! I used to crochet a LOT before. Nothing fancy like yours, just blankets and scarves. Then I wanted to make warm winter clothing and looked into knitting. Now I prefer knitting. Interestingly enough you are amongst the people who inspired me to start knitting :)
Hahaha and why not a hare! Good for you. I think I have told you that I can't crochet to save my life. Always admire your work here. Beautiful
I am self taught at doing crochet :-)A lot of my early projects ended up in the trash!
Do you do this linky party every Sunday? If so…. I'll have to whip something up for this upcoming Sunday's linky party :-)
