I’ve been quiet for a while, I’m sure you can guess why! Our little girl is now 10 weeks old, where has that time gone?! The first few weeks weren’t easy and I really struggled to adjust. It’s only now I am starting to feel more like me and get back to some sort of normality. At the start I was frustrated that I didn’t have any motivation to do any of the things I enjoyed previously. I saw on Facebook that a CAL (crochet along) was starting on the 15th February and I thought it would be ideal to give me something to focus on each week. The project itself is a beautiful shawl, with the theme of Hygge (pronounced hue-gah), a Danish word meaning a feeling or mood that comes taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary, every day moments more meaningful, beautiful or special.
The first week was creating a bobble stitch in all the different colours, which was fairly straightforward, however I’ve miscounted and have ended up with a wonky side and some odd number of bobbles. It took me all of the week to get it finished as the baby kept distracting me each time I sat down to do it, so I’ve decided to just go with it, at least it will be unique!
