I am Re-Hooked on Crochet. For many years, it was my Yarn Needlework of Choice. Then I moved on to Knitting. Then on to Needlepoint. Then to Embroidery...and on and on. The 'Pick one and Stick to It' mantra has never been in my phrase vocabulary. However, I'm finding that the phrase "You always go back to your roots", applies to me not just as a Family Historian, but also as a Needleworker, as I have returned to my 'First Hooked On' craft of crochet this winter.
Back in the Fall of last year, I vowed to 'Use What I Had' in my yarn stash. Believe it or not, I have 'Stuck to It', and have purchased only yarn to augment a 'Stashed Yarn Project'. Except....ooops....a couple of 'Ribbon Yarn' skeins for special scarves at Christmas.
Why Re-Hooked on Crochet? I can answer that with two words....FASTER and FINISH! Since last September, I have FINISHED at least 20 Scarves, 6 Shawls and crochet edged 6 more knitted projects. Started and Finished 4 or 5 bags and seriously lowered the count of yarn skeins in my Stash.
Yep, Crochet is the Way...at least for now!
Oh...the Joy of starting another Shawl...from the Stash!
