Still not writing

I'm still obsessed with crocheting and knitting.


Rufus was not keen to help model hats.





The picture above is of crocheted hyperbolic planes. My younger son gave me a book about crocheting hyperbolic planes for my birthday - it's a way of exploring non-Euclidian geometry using crochet. Some of the concepts are beyond me but I love it!




So, unless Twitter counts as writing, I've not been writing. What about you?

Wonderful fairyhedgehog!! Who would have thought crocheting could be so scientific with words like non-euclidian geometry and hyperbolic planes! LOL!!

But nevermind cos Rufus looks so suitably adorable modelling your gorgeous creations!

Do you subscribe to the online editions for Words for Jam? I sent my first chapter to be critiqued for their "Cornerstone Masterclass" months ago and this April's edition features it!! Page 39!! LOL! Until I saw this yesterday I was in a slump about my current wip - I didn;t know where to go or if I was doing anything right - but the critique has given me so many tips and a lot of oomph - just what I need now to kickstart my wip again. I'm just saying that trying to write a novel for me has been so painstakingly slow and most times was non-existent - but sending a sample to be critiqued like this was just the boost I needed.

Take care

Lots of writing, very little knitting. My mother tried to show me how to do it once. I thought she must be making it up.

Still, the idea of crocheting hyperbolic planes is wonderful. I wonder if anyone has ever set a story in a knitted world? Hmm ...

You could always try knitting with words — it's a great way to string sentences together.

Meanwhile — loving the bird. Everything else looks pretty dandy, but that bird is making me smile...

Hi Kitty! I didn't know that magazine but I've subscribed to it now. I haven't had it come through yet, though. It's great that you got into it! You really are getting on with your writing.

Rufus says thank you, he knows he's adorable.

Simon, you might find you like knitting if you gave it another go - so I'd avoid it! Much better to stay with the writing! And I love the idea of a story in a knitted world.

Whirl, I'm not sure how to knit with words but I'm always open to suggestions. Thanks for the comments on the bird. He does look rather cheerful, I think.

Am with you there. I try to keep my crocheting/knitting times to autumn.

How's your shop doing?

I've finished the first draft of my WIP, so I'm pleased about that. Now the hard work begins.

fairyhedgehog said...

Hi Debbie! Congratulations on finishing your WIP, or the first draft of it anyway. I hope the editing goes well.

I tend to fall away from writing a bit after the push of Nano in November!

Oh, and the shop? It's not going to take off but I'll leave it up for a while.

I ... am ... wriiitttiiinnnggg ... realllly ... slooooowwllly ...

also I can't knit. So you are way ahead of me!

fairyhedgehog said...

batgirl, it sounds frustratingly slow but at least you're getting there. Slow writing has to trump no writing (even with added knitting!)

Lily Razz said...

Oh my gosh Rufus looks SO frustrated and SO funny!! My.... you have you been busy!! It all looks lovely and comfortable and I'm jealous of your many finished projects!

fairyhedgehog said...

Lily Razz, thank you! Rufus doesn't like being a model at all and I don't usually involve him!
