There has been a crazy ugly upper respiratory infection something or other going around our area. My daughter first got a nasty head cold and sniffled for several days. And then I got it! Mine was quite different! Lots of coughing, and copious amounts of phlegm and mucus that I was practically choking on! Some days the coughing was so bad, and so continuous I was exhausted and couldn’t catch my breath!
This began on January the 10th. I am just now, February 7th, getting back to normal! The worst and most scary was the physical weakness. I already have mobility issues so this added to my daily trepidation! Lots of prayers, a couple of visits from the home health care nurse and doctor and I am recovering! I really discovered I love chicken noodle soup, scrambled eggs, saltine crackers and diet 7 up!
Another drawback to sickness, is I could not crochet. I just did not feel well with so much energy expended on breathing and coughing.
I am finally crocheting again! I have really missed it! I decided to start small, so I have made four different granny squares that I am having tested by another crocheter right now. Once ready, I will publish them.
Great thing about granny squares is they are so versatile! You can whip stitch or crochet eight or nine together to make a scarf. You can make a vest or a sweater. You can make a baby blanket, or a wheelchair blanket! If you are extra inclined, you can make as many as you want and make a throw for your couch or a blanket for your bed! How fun is that!
If you are curious, you can find my patterns in my Etsy store https://www.etsy.com/shop/EsthersCrochetNook and in my ravelry store.
Be watching for these new squares! I’m eager to see how many different types of projects I could make using granny squares!
Stay well stay safe! See you around!
