This is my newest crochet project. The pattern is called "Catherine Wheel." I found a really useful video with instructions here. The basic stitch isn't difficult at all, but it took me a few repeats to figure out how to finish and start each row. They're all a little different.
I'm making it on a big hook so it's coming together fast. When Wasabi Girl saw it she asked if it's for Christmas. I was hoping to just add it to my stack of blankets by the couch. Is it too Christmassy? Isn't red and white sort of classic? If I have to pack it away with my Christmas decor than I'm going to start another one in different colors.
I keep all the yarn for this project in a big bag. Hestia loves to burrow in with the yarn.
Here she is, all cozy watching me work.
I usually work on this in the evenings while I watch something on TV. I heard that The X-Files will be getting a reboot. I used to love that show so now I'm working my way through all the old episodes on Netflix. There are 202 in total. I don't think I even watched all of them the first time they aired. I think I sort of lost steam with the whole series when the movie came out. But for the time being, it's fun to watch the early episodes.
