Very true, don't you think? Just the simple repetitive action of a straightforward crochet pattern can be extremely soothing to one's soul :-)
This is a corner-to-corner blanket I am currently working on for my Mum. She chose the colours she wanted and I'm hoping to finally have it finished for her birthday on 25th August ~ it seems to be taking me an awfully long while to get it done! The trouble is that I keep getting distracted by other things LOL I think one more set of the colour repeats will see it at the width Mum wants, then I shall turn the square into a rectangle for the length she would like it to be. I sort of wish I had made the stripes wider, though, so that there would be fewer ends to sew in. Oh well, perhaps I had better make the effort to sew them in along one edge at least before I crochet anymore, otherwise there are going to an awful lot to do if I leave it until the blanket is finished!
