It is the 4th Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week hosted by Eskimimi Makes! I participated last year and you can read those posts here.
This year, we have been challenged to set up residence in one of four houses: bee, manatee, monkey or peacock.
Bees are busy and industrious flitting from one interesting project to the next as shiny objects catch their eye.
I am for sure a bee! My life is wild and crazy busy. I flap my little wings as hard as I can in the hope of creating beauty.
Bees are busy and industrious
I am not one of those people who does well sitting still. I would be miserable if I was just sitting there watching TV. So I crochet during TV time and car time and any time that I have a chance where I am sitting still and can pay attention to my hands.
Flitting from one project to the next
My attention span is definitely not a strong suit. I often times get bored mid-project and can't wait to get started on the next one. So, I jump full-force into the next project (sometimes before finishing the project before it). At one point I had all of these projects in progress all at once...
I just counted...there are 9 different items sitting there and a wide range of projects. There were a few amigurumi, a few photography props and a few practical items for everyday use. It seems I can't even commit to stick with one particular group of items. I will probably never complete a blanket because I can't focus long enough for a project that large.
As Shiny Objects Catch Their Eye
What can I say? I love to dabble! I have met very few crafts that I didn't like, but crochet has for now (and probably forever) captured my heart. I love Pinterest and gain so much inspiration there that just leaves me sad that I can't crochet more than I already do. I have purchased nearly 100 patterns and have made less than half of them. Flavia the Unicorn is on my to-buy list and I won't be able to hold-off very long before I finally buy that pattern. Why? Because it's so pretty and caught my eye and I have an idea that will be easy to execute with supplies I already have on hand.
What are you? Where do you fit in?
Here is a round-up of the houses you can choose:
- Bee: Busy & industrious and slightly distracted by shiny things
- Manatee: Gentle & relaxed representing the comfort and soft side of your craft
- Monkey: Intelligent & fun-loving who likes to be challenged with something new in every project
- Peacock: Flashy & amazing people who take something good and make it brilliant
Maybe you aren't a blogger and want to join the fun. Leave me a comment and tell me which house fits you best. I think we all could probably fit into a few houses, but choose only one and tell me why.
