Crocheting in spite of the fog…

Standard

I was feeling disorganized and sad a few weeks ago.  I struggle with ADD, so I often feel this way.  I’ve found that crocheting helps me when I feel this fogginess. Crocheting seems to bring some order to the chaos in my mind.  I couldn’t  focus enough to make a detailed, complex crochet project so I decided to make a “patchwork quilt” styled blanket using the scraps in our yarn stash.  We have a ridiculous stash of yarn at my house- the remainders of various crochet projects that we’ve made (or attempted to make) throughout the years.  Here are some pictures of the hexagons that will make up the blanket.

I have to make 81 of these!

Some more of my hexagons:-)

I’m storing them in this box until I’m ready to sew them together.
