Certified hooker!

I have a confession to make.

I am addicted to crocheting. I am a hook-er!

This addiction though is husband-approved as it keeps me from driving him up the wall. Well, except, of course, if I spend too much time crocheting and forgetting about him. *lol*.  Crocheting is keeping me company when the husband is away at work, and most of all, it is keeping me away from moping on days when I feel down and blue. It’s an effective diversion when I’m feeling anxious; it relaxes me and the anxiety slowly goes away.

This kind of addiction is also low maintenance. I don’t need hundreds of dollars to get a kick. The yarns are cheap selling only less than a dollar a skein, although, it is not the kind of yarn that I would have used if there are other options. The hooks were given by my Mother and Mum-in-law and there are plenty. Recently, a new-found friend and certified hook-er like me mailed me two pieces of crochet hooks, 5mm and 5.5mm in size, which I don’t have.

Not many people could ever understand this addiction though. For some, they complain about eye-strain, backaches and wrist/hand pains, or even carpal tunnel syndrome. I certainly experience these too but fellow hook-ers would agree with me that it is somehow difficult to stop crocheting once you’ve already begun a project. I have done several items lately which we displayed at last Saturday’s Fun Fair. Here are some of them:

By the way, these items are also for sale. On the left are flower doilies in different colors, various scrunchies (background) and glass coasters (foreground). Let me know if any of these interest you. Friends suggest that I should open a store at Etsy.com but I don’t think I am ready for that one yet. I need more confidence votes, in other words!

Also, we have several pieces of really, really charming beaded jewelries that were unsold during the fair.

These items were all made by hand. If you see something in particular that you fancy, leave me a message so I can provide details about that item.
