Comfort.

I love to crochet.
There is something just very relaxing about it.
Trying to explain this is very difficult.
And I get asked a lot why I do it.
It seems that there is a belief that something is not worth doing unless there is some tangible reason.
The answer "just because" is not good enough.
There is a snarky (no!) side of me that wants to ask my questioners...
"Why do you watch tv?"
We all have different ways we find comfort.
This is my form of comfort.
It beats the heck out of eating a whole package of Oreos!
I have not been able to crochet as much lately because of massive amounts of homework.
But, right now, when I need comfort most, I have been able to pick the hook up again.
What have I been working on lately?
Need you ask?  The most comforting type of crochet of all.....Granny Squares!
I just grabbed some of my excess yarn and away I went.
Something random and colorful.



















































It's still a work in progress but I like how it is coming together :-)
It is so good to be enjoying a little "comfort" again.

This is so pretty! I have shied away from Granny Squares because there are so many ends to weave as you change colors. Do you have secret strateiges to make it easier? Just hoping! Love the Granny post from a couple of days ago beautiful baby too! Thanks for following my blog - you are only my second!
