Casting a feeling

Crocheting might be the craft that you can get excited about ... 
Whoever said this, was absolutely right! Just have something to 
grab once you sit on the sofa. Something to help you empty your 
mind. A joyful project only with a hook and some yarn, it does 
add magic on an ordinary evening because you create something 
real out of nothing but simple yarn. 

 I wanted a throw for my girl’s bedroom, combining the colours 
of her space. A personalised gift for her birthday 
which is soon approaching. I chose pure cotton yarn in the 
shades that you see on the screen but at first, 
there was chaos in my head. 
Which hue? How large would it be? How many flowers in a row? 
What about the edging stitch? No pattern except those existing 
on  youtube without concrete directions regarding the assemblage 
of the pieces or the way to have a tidy, neat back of the blanket. 
I improvised, as usual, this is my kind of thing. Nevertheless, 
it took me long to understand how it could be and evolve. 
An adventurous process, the outcome didn’t disappoint me, 
though! It turned out great I think!

The icing on the cake was given by a handful of paillettes scattered 
here and there in the hope that they will all remain intact 
in the wash! If you have similar experiences, please, do share!

I personally have been so much inspired by Brigitte
a master on crochet inspiration!

So, my ordinary evenings oozed a little dose of glamour and turned 
into a kind of enchantment I really needed. 
It’s all about casting a feeling, 
an essence in the mundane. 
Spicing things up. 
Erstwhile, I was thinking that magical moments were out of 
my grasp or beyond me. Photography showed me the way but 
I’m slowly striving to find it elsewhere. My little crochet work 
helped me not only to stare in amazement on some boring days
but also create memories.

Be well
and thank you for still stopping by!
