Crochet pondering outside


It is overcast. But that doesn't stop me from dragging all my cozy stuff outside to have some crochet time in my garden. The wind is making the laundry dance and the bees are buzzing in my flower beds. I play, without any project in mind. I look at all those swatches of crochet that are lying around having no purpose. I'm longing for a larger project again. Maybe another blanket. Maybe solid squares in variations of lace patterns. Maybe a thicker yarn. Wool. Soft wool. Big hook. Maybe a rag rug! Or a doily... Or a few new pot holders for the summer house?

I'm a sucker for lace for the moment. A new thrifted lace curtain is hung in my shed window. The window is broken and desperately need some new glass... And paint... Another day. Not now. No now it is time for a cup of tea and hooky time before the rain starts dripping from above.

  5. Gosh that looks so nice. I need some outside time with my crochet. I love being inspired by just making something with nothing in mind. Just making odd bits and pieces with no thought as to what the end product would be, or indeed, if there is an end product. Sometimes it's these things that lead us on to big projects. I love lace too. I fancy making something with a lacy edge to it. Lace is lovely....and fun to make too!

    Enjoy your time before the rain comes xxxxxxxxx

  8. Although overcast, such a nice working spot.
    your pictures are beautiful (as ever): I adore the lace in the shed. This is all material for a book.
    Keep going.

    You are looking for new projects? Hard to believe, you Always have so many projects going on at once.

  9. Ah, what a nice thing to do . I'm looking forward to create a little corner like that at our new house, a corner where my dogs won't come, because they never leave me alone!

  11. It is getting windier here and the rain has started so no outside crochet for me. After some ironing I think I'll settle down to some serious crochet time!

  13. Sounds like a perfect day! (minus the rain) I can usually be found on our screened in porch doing the same when I have or take some down time. ;) Like today, it's raining out and I'm working, not on crochet but, on a pinterest project, a watering can to hang in the flower garden with crystals "pouring" from the spout. Look forward to seeing whatever project you decide on.Have a great weekend!

  14. Wow! a nice time you have passed! and accompanied by a good cup of tea!
    the motives are beautiful, I'm sure you'll have a good idea to use them!
    This article does not touch, but I could not help but comment before.
    I think it's a good idea for your blog the button. No push is required.
    But if someone wants to thank his work why not?
    I do not understand morality on this topic!
    Everywhere there are ads, what harm is, then, put ads or want take our work performance?
    I liked that you raised this issue. I have adsence and no one has complained so far ago.
    If you want me to ask any questions I will try to help you if possible!
    Again, thanks Annette for sharing so many beautiful things!
    I wish you a good weekend!
    Kisses from Catalonia!

  15. Lovely post. Like you I'm itching for a new project but cant find the right inspiration, everything around is so dull and wintry and I want bright and cheerful! Lovely tea cup too!

  16. I love all the little squares the triangle you made. I love being outside as well, despite the overcast we have been having here too :-) Have a great weekend!

  18. Hej, är ni hemma igen. Hinner du komma och ta en kopp kaffe nästa vecka?

  19. The lace in the weathered window frame looks absolutely beautiful! You say it needs some repairs and paint, but in this photo it looks perfect (ah, if only I could view my life through lovely photos like this, snapshots can make the biggest messes or repair jobs look downright *chic*!). I'm finishing up my driftwood crochet shawl, but then, like you, I have motifs and colours swirling in my mind but with no formulated plan...yet. Perhaps we'll just go with the flow and let the summer breeze inspire us! Chrissie x

    1. Hi
      Thank you! The bag is a Cath Kidston knitting bag. Perfect to hold crochet projects. It is a gift from a dear friend in England. I think I got it in 2010...

  21. Hello lovely Annette sorry I have not been around for a while - I have been tooooo busy for all the wrong reasons! I love your crochet Annette and would give my right arm for your shed although I think that is it far too lovely to be called that and needs a new name, something glamorous like you. The lace on the window is just perfect! Have a wonderful day Annette, sending you lots of loves and hugs.
