Wind Down...


After a whole day in front of the screen (and after going a bit cross-eyed!), I always want to turn to something offline and hands-on for the evening. Crochet, knitting, any kind of yarn work fits the bill. It’s something my hands can work away at while my poor little brain keeps on novel-ing and plotting👍⠀

At the moment, I’m working on a crochet square from @lionbrandyarn’s 2020 project, #TravellingAfghans (google it, it’s pretty rad!). The square I’m making in the pic is by @twoofwands, called Square #1. It’s a pleasing ‘basket weave’ design that feels thick and squidgy as it works up in teal cotton. ⠀

I don’t know how my project will eventually turn out, as I’m just using up a bundle of leftover yarn, or how the basket weave stitch will work as a series of squares... but that’s sort of why I like to crochet so much. There’s no pressure for the outcome to be perfect, unlike #indie #publishing! 😆⠀
