I am enjoying being domestic lately and have taken up crochet again. It's been fun playing around with different stitches for a scarf that I'm making in a fuzzy, slubbed yarn - a simple design, nothing too challenging first up. You can make absoutely anything out of crochet as the buddha above (don't you just love it?!) shows. To keep whatever you're making modern, it's a matter of choosing the right yarn, stitches and pattern and of course, using a bit of imagination & creativity.
I did try knitting again too, but can't seem to concentrate on it as I'm always getting interrupted, then lose where I'm up to (!) There's probably a trick to overcoming this that experienced knitters know about. For now I stick to crochet that I know really well.
