- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Do you work the pattern or does it work you?
I don't know about all of you hook movers out there, but I notice for me at least that if I'm not working with a color I like, I have a heck of a time. I'm trying to make the purse I mentioned a few posts back, now the picture on Pinterest shows an off white color, which I thought for me, and a purse wouldn't work out. I like the color, but I know me. So I had some sage green, and I tried I don't know how many times to get this pattern, it isn't hard by any stretch, was it the color? So then I bought some varigated which I also posted about, and I ripped and frogged that poor thing to death.
I have a little Aran left over from the Crochet Hooded Shawl, so today I went full circle, and began the purse with the color it's supposed to be in, the pattern is working out fine..what is up with that? Is it the color? Maybe that I have a preference for the cream color? I don't have much left so a stop at Pat Catan's will be in order for this week, I hope it's on sale.

Isn't this a lovely bag? I may make one in the varigated color to, but the Aran color is working fine.
Why is that?
Does this happen to you, or is it just me?
It's okay...be honest...but it is at least something to think about.
Do I crochet things better when it is a color I prefer?
I hope I'm not jinxing myself, but it seems to be working ..fingers crossed....
