It's not much...

...but since you asked, this is what I'm working on:



When it's all grown up it'll be a lovey for a special little friend of mine whose Mommy has been quietly keeping Thomas' spirit alive in some very sweet and wonderful ways.

Shhhhh. I think she reads my blog. Don't tell her...

I've resorted to my old standby - single crochet squares - because I've got that stitch down pat and I can make the squares without thinking. It's very meditative when you can crochet without thinking about crocheting. I'm all about not thinking too much these days. It's nice. Try it. Try it now.

I attempt to add interest to my painfully simple work by using different embellishments - or "distractions", as we non-thinkers call them - so I'm going to add little flowers (that's them you see in the pattern beside the squares) to the four corners of the lovey to make it a little extra special.

At least that's the plan now. I haven't attempted the flowers yet, so we'll see.

Stay tuned...

(And thanks for asking!)

Don't you get bored? I mean...that's a LOT of single crocheting!

Pretty colors. Good luck with the flowers (never tried them myself).

I can imagine it...but you'll have to share pictures when it's done...ok?

I think it's going to be really nice--I like the colors, too. Have you seen the new Debbie Stoller book? It's called Happy Hooker and it's got the coolest stuff in it.
