Crocheting on the go is one way to fit some crafting time into a busy schedule! And especially small items that only take about 6 minutes each, so you really can make use of those spare moments here and there. And for those of you not familiar with crocheting, in my biased opinion, it is a much more compact craft to take with you than knitting for example as crochet hooks are quite small and easy to tuck into a purse. Not to mention that unexperienced knitters generally need to stick out their elbows a bit, and traditional needles can be long, so this wouldn't be so great to do on a crowded bus or train, though I have knitted on the NY subway certainly years back. Nevermind. Knitting, crocheting, embroidery, and needlepoint are all examples of crafts one can do on a trip, assuming you're not the driver!
This week, with two days spent traveling around beautiful Israel, I was so happy to have a project in the works which allowed me to crochet circles which I'll later make into hexigons which are connected as they are crocheted, a task to do at home. More than that I can't reveal as this is a surprise project that needs to be finished in another 6 or so weeks. I may reveal more in a bit, but in the meantime, you can see the pattern here for the circles I've crocheted, with rows 1,2,3 in the same color, as well as the last row which forms the hexigon, of which I've already crocheted and joined 72! (And still going strong!)
