What could be finer than the morning at the weekend with a cup of hot herbal tea just take the time to crochet? Or in the evening when the kids are in bed. The great thing about crocheting is that you can do it anywhere. At the gym class of my daughter, or at the pool during swimming lessons. But also in the car during a car trip is going fine. I fill the entire glove compartment and side compartment in the door with crazy colors of wool. Even the car looks much happier. Crocheting gives me rest and relaxation, but on the other hand offers enough room to my creativity.
It is never boring. If I don’t feel to crochet a new shawl, I can make some flowers for the center. Then you also get more directly a picture/idea how a new shawl will be. If I crochet the green leaves for between flowers. The shawl is very alternate to make. Not one is the same. That’s because the various types and colors of wool, but also because you can vary in the types of flowers. For example, in the amount of leaves, with or without stamens, glitter thread or not, the variations are endless.
There is much love and attention into making these shawls. Sometimes you have a moment when you do not really know how to proceed. Then it helps to put anything away and move on to another project or to complete another. Later on if I see the unfinished shawl again I usually succeed. Wool for the clothes I buy at shops, but I also get a lot of wool of people who know that I crochet. Even tiny scraps of wool I can use for example the flowers. That makes the picture interesting to the eye.
