This is my throw pillow I started to crochet at work (on breaks). Since my stroke it takes me hours to complete a row instead of minutes. I can not move my left fingers to control the tension, like I used to. I chose these colors since I had the lavender and black left over from another project. I bought the brighter purple to liven it up. I decided on a throw pillow, since I was doing it at work and an afghan would get too big to store in my desk drawer. I say eat your heart out Missoni. I started this way before Target tried to keep Missoni fashions in stock. I have actually been making crocheted afghans since I was a kid in 4-H. I used to relax, and crochet away, multitasking with phone conversations or television/movie viewing. It now is frustrating, and takes full concentration. I won’t give it up, until it becomes as easy as before.
