... or: What was first, hen or egg?
Doing the never ending dish washing this week I was just thinking about a title for my next post and the phrase "Call from the Kitchen Sink" came to my mind... stop, haven't we been there before? And might I just have found the explanation why there is too little time for too many dirty dishes to be washed because of crocheting? Do I after all when things get busy here not squeeze in crocheting (for reasons of compensation) whenever there's a small window of time but have the habit of making windows for crocheting, rather great ones, and neglect anything else because crocheting is so much more fun than doing my work in the kitchen?!
If you haven't touched it yet, don't. Let that damn crochet hook ruin somebody else's beautiful home. Once the crocheting began the rest is going down. Believe me.
I have been working on a new doily, jumping on the granny blanket wagon (photos of my first blocks wouldn't go with the purple colour scheme of this post, so no pictures of that project today) and making these four coasters, celebrating hydrangea which is, together with shobu, currently making Japan looking particularly beautiful.
By the way, the Japanese name for hydrangea is ajisai... so happy my sewing machine is knowing that, too ;-)
And, besides being addicted to crocheting and turning MOONSTITCHES into the boring crochet blog (no offence in case you have one, too, but I just was being told by a friend there had been more exciting times here around), I actually was busy with all sorts of things and one day I was even a little sick.
Oh well, I am now fully obsessed with the idea of knitting myself a beautiful lace shawl (just the right thing for a Japanese summer...), already decided on the Heartland Lace Shawl, have the charted pattern here but absolutely no clue of how to begin... but there are about a hundred blocks for my blanket to be made first... focus!
