I realized the other night that I have had quite a few time out opportunities. A Theta Mom time out is when we take an hour just for ourselves. I've been working on a new project and this time out has been my nightly ritual for a week or so now.
I like to crochet. Ok, I love it - I'm hooked!!! Ever since I started last year I've been making things for other people. I've made stuffed animals for each of my kids. I made a boatload of Christmas presents last year. I even made a blanket for the husband. That last project took forever, but it felt so good to finally complete it!
But I have never made anything for myself. For a while now I've been wanting to make a sweater but I'll be darned if I could find a decent pattern. Either it wasn't the style I was looking for or it was a knitting pattern. I don't knit - I'm not sure if I could do 2 needles. For my birthday a few months ago my mother-in-law bought me a subscription for a crochet magazine. Lo and behold there was an awesome sweater in the latest issue! So guess what I'm making for myself?
This is the back of the sweater. I also have 3/4 of one of the sleeves done. It sounded confusing at first because I have never made an article of clothing, but it's actually quite simple. Almost every night after I put the kids to bed, I plop on the couch, turn on one of my shows or a hockey game, and work on my sweater. I can't wait to wear it! Hopefully I finish it before it gets too hot outside!
If you want to see more of what I have crocheted, there's a link up in my nav bar. I have also opened an Etsy shop recently. There's only a few things there, but I plan on adding to it once I finish my project for myself. Click on the button below to be redirected to my shop. I hope you like what you see!
Until next time....
