Crochetin'

As you may know, I've only been knitting for a little more than a year.
I am not particularly good at it. I am, also, not particularly fast.
Furthermore, I do not find knitting relaxing or restful.
Crocheting is another matter.
I love to crochet and thread crochet has always been a particular joy, for me.
Usually, I like to work from vintage patterns or my own designs. This particular necklace/choker pattern, however, is from a book that I received for Christmas, entitled Positively Crochet!, by Mary Jane Hall.
I picked up my hook to keep my hands busy while I was watching The Revenge of Dr X (....aka The Double Garden, aka several other titles....) and had it done in no time. I blocked it the next day and was able to coax my assistant into modeling the finished necklace.

Feels Like Springtime!

A new cut, fresh colour, pretty pink lip gloss and new reading glasses!

All of this lovely, warm weather has gone to my head.
