Before I took up crochet, I would often sit in front of the tv quite happily either with my laptop on or just watching tv. Since late last Summer (when I learnt to crochet), I struggle to sit in front of the tv without doing something else.
I have just finished crocheting a blanket for my F-I-L for Fathers Day (which if I have scheduled properly you will have already seen a glimpse of). The night I sewed in the last end, I put it down, H put the tv on I just looked at him.
I just couldn't settle (sorry if I bugged you love). I just felt wrong. I looked at the pile of left over wool from the FIL blanket and nothing jumped out at me. Most of my wool is packed away to make a potential move easier so I didn't want to go and drag some out but I just felt like something was missing.
Now, I managed to sit there and watch the tv but I never settled. That was yesterday, I am already feeling not quite right about tv watching tonight. I may need to dig out the wool bag to see what I can start. There are 2 babies due this year, so perhaps I can start a blanket for them, maybe learn a new stitch too.
Who'd have thought that a new hobby could make sitting on your bum so much more exciting :-)
