While I can't give up on crochet since I can't knit to save my soul...I can understand the project that you just don't want to see any longer, but have to finish just to move on to something else!


I've made one granny square afghan in my life and that's exactly why. By the time I got all the squares made, I had zero desire to put it together. No, give me a project which at the end, is finished, no sewing in strands or sewing together a billion squares.
I have to say I really like the colors in this one. Oh heck, I always like what you put together! It'll look great on the bed or sofa or reading chair!


Ronnie: Yes! And I always dream up these BIG crochet and knit ideas -- which is why I'm moving on to something more with a faster turn-around time, just so I can "ooh and ah" over 'em quicker. ;)

Christine: Thank you! The granny square blanket will cover a full-size bed! I'm all hyped on joining 'em, ever since I found out how easy it is (in fact, if I had known that, I wouldn't have stalled all this time, lol)! As for sewing in strands, that's why I'm always trying to beg people to crochet OVER the strands as you go! I LOVE it -- and the strands have never poked out, even through multiple washings! :)


I'm big on the big projects too then I get bored or just "over" them. I heard there's a group on Ravelry where people would take your unfinished projects and complete them for you. If you're on Rav, maybe you could have someone in the group finish GSB. The colours are so pretty together, it would be nice if it gets done.

I'm with you on the helpfulness of having craft in one's life. I've been dealing with a lot of life and feel it's time to incorporate some craft to maintain sanity.

Just as long as those awesome recipes of yours are considered "craft" ... I'll be around. Cheers.


Hi Nicky ~ Thanks for the info! I've come up with a new idea for the granny squares, so I'm glad I held off from joining 'em all together! :)

Ah, yes, I need to get back to being crafty in the kitchen.

Let's Talk About Stix

Stix on the Beach:Tales From The Happy Hooker debuted in 2005 from Newport Beach, Orange County, California.

It quickly gained a following who then abandoned it once it was clear it was not a blog about "that kind" of hooker. A few, however, stayed for the crochet tips.

Blog is best viewed using a sense of humor.
