Crocheting

I'm finding it difficult to get back my routine after the holidays and start creating again. I took lots of knitting and sewing away with me, but found myself gazing out of the window at the beautiful view, pottering or reading. I decided to let go of the feeling that I must always be doing something and just enjoy the rare experience of not being busy. It was bliss!

I dabbled a little with some crochet that I had started a couple of weeks earlier and I have picked it up once or twice when I have sat down in the evenings this week.
The scarf is made from strings of crocheted circles like the one I made for my Mum (see a previous post).
I am making it quite long and skinny- possibly only two rows of circles. I can't wait for it to be finished, but as the weather has warmed up so much there is probably no hurry!
