Crochet mojo.....NEW PROJECT!

Hello! It's a stay-at-home day today. Parent/Teacher conferences were Wednesday night, all day Thursday, and Thursday night, so today is our comp day. Yay! Jammies and crochet are on tap for today!

Ever since my surgery at the beginning of the month my crochet mojo has floundered.  Has that ever happened to you? I would look at projects, but my heart just wasn't in them to start them. I would idly flip through my magazines, but nothing stirred me enough to pick up my hooks, until.....




Isn't going to be great? I'm sure hoping so and it has me hooking excitedly again. The yarn I picked up at my LYS and it should have been pricey, but wasn't because it was over half price off! It is wonderful to touch and will make this project very wearable. I am having to make some modifications because my yarn and hook size are different, but so far so good; everything seems to running correctly.

Thanks to Hazel and Rob for the blog awards. I appreciate you stopping by and giving me a nod!

Have a fabulous Friday!

Oh, my gosh. That is STUNNING. Can you tell me what book/magazine that pattern came from?

I fell in love with this too and made it a couple months ago. I turned out great and if I can get it away from my daughter I might get to wear it sometime.

I know that feeling oh too well. I'm sort of in that place right now.

Glad your crafting mojo is back and this project is going to be a beauty. That yarn is gorgeous!

Hello! Just stopping by from Debi Y's blog. Enjoyed reading a few of your posts. Love the new project and YES!!! I hit a crochet block more often than I like to admit. Sometimes it just takes seeing a color or a yarn to get mine back. I'm happy yours is back and the project is awesome!! I'm excited to keep following your blog to see the final outcome. I've been hearing a lot of good things about that Cascade yarn as well...just might have to try it out!
