Is ‘to refriend’ actually a verb? I fear not. Well not to my generation anyway! However, that’s what’s happened in recent weeks 😊 After three months in a box, I managed to get my Sophie back on. Hurrah! I don’t think it’s unusual to suffer some kind of a mental block with this one. She truly is a labour of love! Here she is, grown from Part 6 to Part 7. I am now well in to Part 8. Will share update again soon…
I’ve had a bit of writer’s block going on too recently – just not feeling a posting urge – yet my crojo remains happily ON so there’s quite a lot to report! But I’ll make this one short and sweet, so I can hook just a lil bit more before my daughters return from school and preschool. And do a bit of secret Christmas stuff too – I love Christmas, I didn’t until I became a mum, but now I enjoy it more with each year they grow. My youngest just turned five and my eldest is seven. Here is a rare sharing of a picture of my life outside crochet ☺
Would you love to start a Sophie but feel a bit daunted by the prospect? Don’t be – the pattern instructions are amazing in their detail and Dedri writes in such a friendly and encouraging style! I have purchased the gorgeous book, but you can also find the entire pattern for free (wow!) here.
I started working on Sophie’s Universe in June of this year. Have you completed Sophie? How long did it take?
Until next time,
Happy hooking! Pam x
