it's about crochet ..... it's about writing ....

February 18 is Single Tasking Day

That means
“Stop trying to do 25 things at one time.  Focus and finish something.”
If you are a crafter,
I bet you have lots of projects in various stages of progress.
I have an afghan I am currently working on for a little guy
who is growing out of the precious baby afghan
I made before he was born and his parents asked for another one
just a bit larger.
I chose a pattern that I thought might be a bit more little boyish.
It’s the Little Boy Blue Blanket
from the February 1994 issue of Crochet World.
It is basically the basket weave pattern and I am making it larger.
It took about a dozen rows for me to become comfortable
with the pattern.
I just started my fourth skein of yarn and I’m wondering
if the blanket will end up a square or a rectangle.
since I want to finish this before he graduates from high school,
all my other unfinished projects are still on hold.
