The other night (actually now a week and a half ago ...) I heard this pink yarn* calling to me. I dug it out of my stash, flipped through all my pattern books, and decided to make a simple filet crochet checkerboard scarf.
Sometimes I just need a simple, repetitive project to occupy my body and the front of my conscious mind while I let the rest of my mind wander. It's very close to meditating for me. This yarn is so silky and fluffy, too. What a dreamy baby yarn. I'm kinda sad the whole skein is gone.
During my scarfing, in addition to letting my mind wander, I listened to Diane's latest podcast interview with Kim Werker
. If you're a crocheter like me, you're probably very curious about her recent departure from Interweave Crochet and the fact that she sold her website Crochet Me. Wonder no more! The podcast has the skinny on the changes and much, much more. I strongly urge you to listen
Does it matter that I'm not a pink kinda girl or that I already have 800 scarves? No, I didn't think so. Ha!* I don't know what kind of yarn it is, but I'm guessing it's a baby weight acrylic. It was part of a gifted box of yarn I got from Shannon of Birdstar. Thanks again, Shannon!
