Creative albatross

I have finished just two crocheted items this year.

Dentelle cowls

Both were crocheted in a couple of hours over a couple of nights back in May.

But I've been working on this one project since April (I thought it was begun in January, but my Ravelry page doesn't lie). And it's on my radar for Finishing Month.


I love it, but I'm over it. I was over it back in May. But I want to finish it before I start something new. It's like a creative albatross around my neck - a burden. A guilt.

I have some lovely yarns I want to start working with, including these.

Handmaiden Camelspin

Wollmeise - Jeton and Graf Ratz

Would love to talk more, but I gotta fly. I have another 20-odd rows until I'm finished, and the end of November looms.


  1. You can doooo eeeeet! (I am loving all the crochet versions of fabulous shawls and scarves at the moment. I have just a few in my queue!)

  2. gosh, those yarns ARE gorgeous!
    definitely get those last rows done :D can't wait to see what you've got planned for those fabulous skeins!

  3. Lovely yarn....I know the feeling of things hanging over you.

  4. oh. my. goodness. i think you should give that albatross away, really, i'm only thinking of you here, it's in your best interest...


    love those cowls together, the colors are delicious!

  5. Want to squish the camel and silk between my palms. The Citron - great shawl but if the crochet version is as tedious as the knit version you have my deepest sympathy.

  6. I know exactly what you mean about an enjoyable project that feels like a weight that needs to be shaken off.

    There are some delightful yarns in your future, I love the grey and mustard!
