I brought all three of my Scheepjes crochet projects with me to the library this morning. Since I couldn’t make up my mind which one to put in my bag, I took all of them.
With the forecast calling for heat and humidity, the cotton blend of the yarns were a good choice. It’s usually a temperature control lottery in the library when the weather changes dramatically. Today the room was relatively comfortable, no doubt because the heat wouldn’t arrive until later in the morning.
When I sat down at the table, I laid all three projects in front of me. There was the Dimholt Wrap that I worked on the previous week, the Hygge CAL that is driving me bonkers, and the asymmetrical shawl in Moonstone. Which one to do? Well…
Choosing the Right Scheepjes Crochet Project for Today
The Dimholt seemed like the most likely option at first. I am now familiar with the pattern so distractions aren’t that much of a problem. Last week I teasingly told my Mom to be quiet because I was trying to figure out the end of the row. That got me in trouble. It’s okay to yell at your husband when you are counting, but your mother is sacred. What am I supposed to do? I’m not one of the “lucky” ones to have a husband. I have to take out my own trash and feed the bun sisters, darn it!
I should have worked on the Hygge CAL. It really needs to be done, but it’s that huge, looming shadow monster that lurks under the bed at night. If I would only peek underneath, I would find a little dusty bun shaking in the breeze caused by the fan. The plan for today was to work on the single crochets for the next part and put cotton thread in the tops of the first and last rows for the overlay crochet and cross stitch. This was so I could concentrate on the cross stitch this week.
Instead, I magically began crocheting the double crochets on the asymmetrical shawl I am designing. This was the best choice since the conversation turned to something relevant to a situation that is happening in my family. This is an easy pattern so I could listen and contribute to the discussion. The only trouble came when I realized I didn’t do one of the Chainless Standing Double Crochets properly and I had to frog almost two rows. No big deal, really. In the end I completed the second skein just before 12:30 pm so it was a win for me. It’s what I wanted to accomplish.
So, what did you work on today? Is it something that absolutely must be done by a certain deadline? Or is it an easy project that makes you happy? Let me know in the comments below.
Have an excellent day!
