Crocheting in PhasesBy A Guest Writer – 12 Comments
A Guest Post by Sarah.
I’m obsessed with crocheting slippers. At the moment. Before that it was scarves, and then shirts, and then cozies. And I never seem to finish them all. I think a new type of crocheter has been discovered: The phase crocheter.
All it takes is for me to look at one type of crocheted item, and I’m ALL over them. Not too long ago, I looked at a pair of crocheted slippers, and now I have a million ideas in my head of slippers that I want to make. Right now, I could probably make 10 pairs of slippers in a week, even though I know only one or two would be worn. As you can tell, I’m stuck in a slipper phase.
About 2 weeks ago, I had my cozy phase. In about a day I had managed to make a cell phone cozy, a portable DVD player cozy, and half of a Kleenex box cover. (To be honest, I still haven’t finished the Kleenex box cover, and I’ll probably be ripping it all out).
My shirt phase didn’t last too long because I could never design a top that would fit well and look good on me. I do, though, enjoy making clothing for other people. The scarf phase was one of the strongest ones. It occurred last winter. I made a scarf a day for a good couple of weeks. I have SO many scarves now, I wouldn’t notice if half of them went missing.
My crocheted purses top the list. I have tons and tons of them because purses are, by far, my favorite thing to crochet. Purses are my only thing that doesn’t come in phases; I make them ALL the time.
So, would you classify yourself as a “phase crocheter”? Do you have a million crocheted items of the same type? Do you become obsessed with one area of crochet at a time? If so, you just might be: The phase crocheter.
