WIP – Parabola Afghan (Part 1)

The hardest thing about not blogging for a while is working out exactly how to begin again. Do you just pick up from where you left off or do you try to make up for lost time? Do you ignore the fact that you were MIA, or is it best to address the why?

To be honest, I probably do not have enough regular readers yet to have noticed my short absence. But for some, missing for nearly three weeks in the blogosphere can seem like an eternity.

School holidays, a badly sprained ankle, a trip to Melbourne and some soul-searching are just some of the reasons why I have not felt like blogging. The biggest reason though is that I have been struggling to find my “voice” for my blog. Don’t get me wrong, I have been having a lot of fun with it so far – it just seems to be a little stale, especially when it feels like you are trying to stick to a formula of posting “this thing” on this day and “that thing” on another.

Does that mean I am going to give up? Nope, not at all. It just means that it is going to take me a while figure out exactly what I want this blog to be – and that is okay.

Anyways, if you are anything like me, you have a hundred crafty projects on the go at anyone time. This is one of mine that I am trying to design. I am calling it the Parabola Afghan as it has been inspired by the music clip for Parabol / Parabola by Tool (seriously one of the best music clips of all time!)

The plan is to crochet a ton of eyes in all the colours of the rainbow, then crochet them together to create something awesome. So far, I think the plan is working but I won’t know for sure until I am a couple more colours in. Hopefully it will resemble what I have had in mind.

If you want to follow my progress – and be the first to know when the pattern in available – be sure to subscribe to my blog or to add it to your bookmarks 😀

    1. Thank you so much Tracey. I am hoping to include a photo tutorial once I have finished it. I have a strange way of writing down my patterns as I go, so the hardest thing will be deciphering and translating them so others can understand (seriously, I have trouble reading my own “running” handwriting, lol!)

      I am hoping to post an update on the afghan latter on in the week. Thank you once again for following and your comment 😀
