Crocheting is my fall-back stress relief. I love to have a project in hand, and nearly always have one or two things in the works. For instance, right now, I have plans for more dishcloths. Those are my easiest and best ongoing project. I love to tuck a stack of three dishcloths in with most gifts. Everyone can use them, and there's nothing nicer to use than a handmade 100% cotton dishcloth. Mine are very plain, very utilitarian, and very sturdy. I love to make them and love to gift them. I also have a hat and scarf underway, as well as an afghan. I have plans to learn to knit this year, as well. I hope I'm coordinated enough.
Just lately, I crocheted a little bucket-y hat. It's made with chunky yarn and it's sturdy enough, I could have added a handle and turned it into a little basket, but I had hatlike intentions, and so it came to be.
It's certainly versatile, in terms of size. Both my granddaughter (who was reluctant to model, until MMM made her smile) and I are modeling it here.
What do you think? Do you have a hobby that lets you work out life's knots?
I'm linking up to a party here.
