Crochet chat

I have a neighbour, Christine. She lives just down the street from me and she is crazy about crochet just like me. Yesterday she came over for a "crochet chat", to update our crochet projects and I was very taken by her latest creation. Isn't that something? A blanket for her Mother in law. Beautiful.

I love the edging.

I love the texture details she has made by joining on the right side in places. I love the colours.

And there we sat, touching, squeezing, oohing and aaaahhing over our projects. My Gypsy WiP, her bright Granny stripe WiP together with her purple Granny square blanket. Talking about yarn, where to find it, finding time to crochet, waking up in the middle of the night with colour combo ideas and projects in your head and aches and pains connected to the fabuolous hobby. Crochet elbow? Have you ever heard about that? My elbow hurts. Inside, not all the time but it is like soar and hurts when I carry things...

It is so good to know I am not alone being so obsessed with the hook and the yarn. Funny how you can talk crochet for hours with someone who shares your interest. I am very lucky to have a crochet friend so close by. And then I have all of you here in the blog world of course. I am blessed.

Ciao!
