It very easy to say ‘I’ll never do that’ ( whatever ‘that’ might be. I’ve caught myself out before! There are those amongst you that have heard me say ‘Granny squares? I hate them. I’ll NEVER make them …’
If it hadn’t been for the need of bedside crochet when my husband nearly died – and then, just a few short months later, as my mother lay dying, I would probably never have tried one again. However. The need of small portable pieces was of the essence – and granny squares are now often the order of the day.
This month is Blogtober21. The idea is that you blog each day – I don’t think I’ll manage every day but after the dearth of posts in August snd September I have some catching up to do!
October is also, apparently, Socktober! Now there I am once again going to say NEVER! This time, however, I think I may mean it.
Funnily enough it isn’t the making of them that puts me off but the wearing of them. Committed sock knitters have tried for years to convince me of their supreme comfort etc, but it hasn’t worked. In fact, even thinking about the ones I’ve seen has reminded me that ‘never’ may well be the word.
(You have permission to laugh raucously and remind me of this post if I ever do get the urge – but please don’t try and convince me because already my feet are cringing at the very thought)
