I’m a natural

I’ve just learned how to crochet and now I can’t stop. I really like making things and having something to show for it. It’s a little bit more palpable than my job in media production which requires lots of time and thinking, but the material that is created seems less substantial somehow. I also like how I learn from mothers and grandmothers. It is really great to spend time with women who are smarter and more experienced than me. I love to ask questions.

Anyway, you’ll notice my tension is great for a beginner. I’m a natural. And my nail polish matches my crochet hook purely by coincidence, I promise. I’m making an afghan which requires 14 balls of yarn in four different colours. I’m very excited.
