Finally got my yarn order today (seriously fedex smartpost sucks balls) two cakes of #redheartyarn It's a wrap rainbow. I got nautical and whisper.
I wanted to compare them to my one true love, #wolltraumyarn my melody. And they're very similar!
Similar fiber content. #itsawraprainbow comes in 150g cakes so half the size of my wolltraum but its a big cake. Not sure if redheart did tiny knots for color changes or not but we will see. It is made from four unplied threads. I'm eager to try it out!
Trying to get my crochet mojo back! FINALLY done with this blanket! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 It's a funky size because it was supposed to be for my little ones twin bed but I was tired of making it and she decided she wanted it more for a lap blanket on the couch (she has a different blanket she loves to sleep with) so I just finished the color pattern and called it done.
I used to crochet constantly (it really helps with my anxiety) but I took on this blanket and a few other projects that kind of killed my love for it. 💔💔 I've learned that large projects are not for me. I like smaller ones (like hats & scarves) that can be done in a few days. Makes me feel more accomplished I guess.
Crocheting really does help my anxiety (and keeps me from mindless snacking or constant playing of Candy Crush) so I'm really pushing myself to get back into it. Now that I've finished this blanket time to pick a project to bring back the mojo!💞💞💞 Have you ever lost your love for a hobby and tried to get it back? What helped you?

I've been struggling with Jena Cardi's gauges. I'm afraid I might have to start over again..😒 I try not to stress out about it.
So I did a swatch for refreshing myself and making all the negative thoughts go away.😊👌
✨ Knitting is my meditation, not a frustration.✨ You all have a lovely day!💞
