Prescription Crochet #2

You may remember that back in May I finally went to see the physio about my wrist/thumb that had been bothering me for a couple of years. Along with other exercises the physio prescribed that I crochet every day, beginning with a minute a day and building up.

I began by starting to crochet a small pot of flowers.

The pot grew very quickly even at only a few minutes a day. However crocheting pots of flowers is so not me. I just about got the pot finished, before I got distracted by a new project.

I’d been asking for suggestions about what to crochet/knit with my Blueberry Bam Bam whirl.

I’d been resistant to working on a shawl, because I never wear them. However, as the discussion went on I realised that when we sit out on an evening after a BBQ and I get a little chilly, I tend to grab the nearest blanket belonging to Harry and wrap myself in it.

Okay this is obviously not my garden, but me on holiday sporting one of  Harry’s blankets.

Maybe I did need a did need a shawl after all.

I chose the Flower Valley shawl pattern – beware if you ever chose to make it, there are mistakes in the written instructions. Building up from my slow few minutes a day to more lengthy spells of crochet, I finished it in 6 weeks.

Very pleased to win a 2nd place for this in the craft section of the produce show – especially since I didn’t even think I would be able to crochet anything ever again when I first saw pamphlet inviting entries.

Of course in the six weeks it took me the weather became colder and I haven’t had chance to wear it. But it is rumoured it may be warm enough here for a BBQ tomorrow.

Hope you’re having a great week.

Until next time,
