Photo Hunt #43: Addiction

Friends, I have a confession to make. I am addicted to crocheting, therefore, I am a hook-er.

Assorted items: scarf (upper left), and scrunchies in different colors. Don't you just love these crocheted delights? Photos above were some of the items I recently finished just in time for today's NGO Fun Fair.

I recently picked up crocheting again but crocheting is something that I had learned to do a long, long time ago (you may want to read this for details). As I no longer work and ( if I do snag a job, I only accept short-term consultancy jobs) crocheting keeps me from moping, getting bored (and turn attention to poor husband and drive him up the wall!) on slow days or when I am in-between jobs.

This kind of addiction I consider as low-maintenance (and something that my husband approves of, except when I spend way too much time on it). The yarn is cheap and is available, but in limited variety, in the markets here. Crochet hooks as well, but my mother and MIL had sent me several of them, so I don’t need to buy again and again, in case I break them. Recently, a new found friend sent me two crochet hooks in 5mm and 5.50mm sizes for my birthday. Isn’t she sweet? Thanks, Kristy!

I don’t know how many of you can relate to this kind of addiction, but to those who do, you will nod your head with me in agreement when I say how difficult it is to stop crocheting once you’ve already started. At the end of the day, when my husband comes home from work, his eyes widen in astonishment at how much I’ve crocheted. I’ve done a lot of items recently, and yes, you may say that I am a certified hook-er!  *lol*

I’ll probably open an account at Etsy.com and see if anyone’s interested enough to buy my outputs. Wouldn’t you be?

  1. I used to be hooked on crochet at one time, before the internet came into my life. Crochet a lot just to keep myself occupied. I love that beautiful piece!
