Participating in blog week has been such a blast! A huge thank you to eskimimi for her hard work in organizing this event. Also, hugs to all of you for your creativity, inspiring words and kindness. You make me want to push my crafting and blogging further. In fact, it was mainly because of all the cool crochet projects that I have encountered on so many of your blogs (in particular here, here and here) that made me want to get serious about learning how to crochet. And boy, has it been a fun journey!
Now the biggest challenge is to find a good balance between my ever growing knitting projects and my new crochet love. The current strategy is to have one crochet project always on the hook so that my skills do not get rusty. So far this has worked out well since the crochet projects that I am drawn to right now are very simple, spontaneously colorful ones.

I would say that these make perfect counterpoints to my more involved knitting projects. Although I am finding it harder and harder to resist starting more crochet projects. A larger WIP basket might be necessary soon!
