April A-Z: C is for Crochet

I learned to crochet as a child, churning out simple granny squares made up of odds and ends of yarn to be stitched together to create colourful patchwork blankets. In many ways I’ve not really progressed much beyond that, I still enjoy making blankets but although over the years I’ve tried more intricate patterns I find that when it comes to practical use I tend not to use the prettier, lacier, lighter-weight creations I worked so hard on so have recently been unravelling them to re-use the yarn for making more solidly heavier bed covers that are first and foremost warm and weighty.

Life events have conspired to pull me away from blogging over the last couple of months, and the idea of taking part in this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge seems like a good way to try to get back into the habit of reading and posting regularly. Originally I thought of just using any old random words to go with the particular letter of the day, but realistically without a clear theme to work towards I’m not sure I’d be able to keep my focus for a full month… So instead I’ve opted for a relatively simple, if slightly self-indulgent work-around: This year I’ll be posting 26 things about me, nothing too taxing to write about yet still fulfilling the brief!
