Last year, I was working on a crocheted infant/baby dress when I had lost my passion to crochet or for any handiwork. I put it aside and put it out of my mind.
A couple of weeks ago, I picked it up again and was determined to finish it once and for all. After working on a couple of rows, I again lost the “umph!” to finish. However, I pressed on and instead of following the direction, I went off on my own a little.
I ended up with just a top and decided to either make the bottom half out of fabric, or find a crocheted skirt pattern that I liked better.
The back is buttoned. I have pins holding it in place. I have yet to sew on the buttons.
Sheer laziness or something else?
The pattern is from an old issue from Magic Crochet that I found online.
It say that it is sized for a 6 month old, but (after completing the top) it looks bigger.
This pattern uses #10 crochet thread and I used a size 6 crochet hook.
Besides handicrafts, I seem to have lost my passion/desire/fondness, or whichever word fits my aloofness at life, for things that were dear to me.
It’s hard to find that spark when depression weighs you down.
