My crochet UFO's #1


So many UFO's in my life. A consequence of loving a new start. Hardly ever follow through on a project until the end... Or I guess I do. It just takes time. Distraction is my greatest enemy. Or friend. It depends on how you see it. It is a bit of a love and hate relationship actually...

A creative mind, full of ideas that needs to be expressed. Through color, texture and form. Pictures and words. Always creating. Seeing beyond what is there. It can be exhausting but it also keeps me alive. Without it I'm not a happy person. I need it.

Lately I've been charged with energy to finish my UFO's. To stay on that course I decided to record my mission here on my blog. To keep me focused. So I truly can work through that pile, once and for all. To be able to start fresh. Later on. All those ideas doodled in my creative journal waiting for me to give them my undivided attention... Are they ever going to come alive? I'm in no rush. This is my hobby. It is not a job. When it is a job it's different. Then I follow through. Always. It is a bit bizarre isn't it? So disciplined as an employee, so whimsical as a creative private. Maybe it is all about yin and yang. Two halves that together complete wholeness. Opposites attract. Maybe it is necessary for me to have it this way.

The sun blesses my Sunday morning. Now I go outside to sit on my bench in the sun for the first time in 2018. To crochet my last 5 squares to this baby blanket. That square at the bottom right needs to be frogged and made all over... It is a bit bigger then all the rest. Then a border. This project was only started 4 years ago by my daughter Nelly Bo. She made all those squares. In a time when she needed to create to find peace within. Crochet therapy, the best one. Now those therapy squares are coming together as one. UFO #1 almost finished. Happiness that is. :) Happy Sunday!

NOTE: The crochet block used in this project is called Daisy Square and it was one of my very first tutorials I shared here on the blog in 2010. There are many variations and free patterns available on internet for this block and I have no idea who came up with the original idea. Full pattern of my version with picture tutorial can be found here.

  1. Love the granny squares. They’re pretty and colorful. I’m sure that one square won’t be hard to fix. It looks like it just had an extra gray row added. Easy to take out right! Good for you finishing up UFO’s. I have many as well. One day I shall work on them. Happy crafting from New Mexico.

  3. Gorgeous squares, it's looking good. Yarny things are excellent therapy I always find. I'm a big fan of starting things as well. I'm good at sticking to other people's deadlines, but not my own, odd isn't it. I need to be stricter with myself! Lovely that you had some outside crochet time. The season is starting to turn. Have a good week Annette, CJ xx

  4. Jag är likadan! Underbart att börja nytt, hopplöst att avsluta allt! Nu har jag en regel för mig själv. GÖR KLART!! Rätt duktig på det faktiskt. Har inte du haft lite sånt på instagram, oktober är UFO-månad? Jag försöker hålla mig till det!

    En annan sak, jag vill minnas att du för lääänge sen testade ett Dropsgarn i bomull som delade sig och bråkade. Jag har haft liknande hemma som absolut INTE går att virka med. Men krokning!! det går jättebra! Nu ska garnet krokas upp! Stort kuddfodral på gång!

    Jag skulle nog vilja mena att det finns vissa garnnystan som är UFO:s i sig själva. Man vet inte vad dom ska bli!

    Ha en fin dag!
