Please leave a message after the tone......

I feel a bit like this blog is on answerphone mode.  I don't seem to be able to get myself together to blog recently.  I don't know why.  I have lots to blog about.  I have made lots of new and fabulous things, but I just don't seem able to put the projects and the camera together at the same time.

Part of the problem is that I am focusing my attention away from the internet.  Don't get me wrong, I'm still reading and commenting on other people's blogs and still getting lots from them, but I don't seem to be able to put the same effort into my own writing.  Actually I think it is the photographing that is slowing things up.  I hate to blog without photos.

I think because I have been crafting so hard, I have not had the energy to actually do the photography bit.  Normally I have a couple of projects to talk about at a time, which means that I have a nice crafting/photographing/blogging balance.  Everything ticks along nicely.  You increase one element of that and the other elements automatically decrease.

I'm also trying to prepare for my holiday in a few weeks.  I have discovered that crochet hooks are acceptable on airlines even though knitting needles aren't.  I want to pick the brains of all you lovely crochet divas out there.  Come on don't be shy, you can admit your skillz.  I need a simple project that I can take on the plane that doesn't use tonnes of yarn, so maybe something in Double Knit or 4 ply.  It does need to be relatively simple as I am not a confident crocheter, I'm ok once I get going, but it does take a while to get back into the swing of things.

So step up people and please recommend something for me to try, maybe a scarf or some such thing.

All suggestions are gratefully received!
