Crocheting Freely

Well, I've procrastinated long enough and I finally got started on the other baby poncho - you know the one that I was searching down the yarns for? Well, today while riding home from an out-of-town church service, I completed one of the two pieces needed to make the poncho. I will start on the second piece tonight to motivate me to go ahead and finish this project.

What I've learned about myself is that I like to crochet freely; meaning, I like to crochet whatever, whenever and not be too beholding to others about when I get finished. When I feel like someone's waiting for me to finish, it then begins feeling like real work. I'm also learning that I've been a bit A.D.H.D. concerning crocheting too. As soon as I see a pattern that I really like, I've just got to try it. When I need to finish a project for someone else I can't fulfill that urge to do the new project. So more power to those business owners who do custom orders. I don't think that I could do that at this time. I think that if I actually start an Etsy shop or sell at the local craft fair, I can only manage selling items that I've already predesigned/premade, especially due to the demands of my regular job(s).

That being said, here's the poncho piece that I finished. Even after my expressions above, please note that when I complete the second piece of this poncho and embellish it, I will be full of smiles because I will like the final creation and only imagine a cute baby girl wearing this item. I will also be equally excited to present it to my co-worker. Please do not feel that I do not want to make this item. I'm just a bit antsy to get it done. It doesn't help that today I saw a really cute ponchette for an adult that caught my eye. And that adult might just be me because I never make things like that for myself.... :-)


  1. Your not alone....I believe most of us end up with Crocheting adhd! I must have seven different projects in the works...I love your ponchos the pattern your own...can I purchase the pattern from you or do you have a link where I can get it?

  2. Looks beautiful. And Oh how I know what you mean. I love to craft freely, as well. I figured that out this last Christmas when my mother wanted to gift some of my felted bags...that were not yet done. I will not make that mistake again, especially during the holidays. From now on I will only offer the ones that are complete. Glad you found the yarn you were seeking, that can be stressful, too. Crafting should not be stessful!!! Hope you are having a great day!

  3. Well, depending on the custom order, sometimes I have a hard time too...
    I also like crocheting whatever I want, with no deadline.
