The title may be one you think I’ve used to be trendy and draw your eye in. Sadly – its really just that… I had a crochet “nightmare” last night. No, I did not wake up in a cold sweat with eyes wide open, gasping for breath (as you’d see in any top notch thriller). I did wake up a bit frustrated and curious why I would have this type of a dream.
My dream is this:
I was working on the scarf I just finished awake – although instead of knit, which the real one is, this one was being crocheted. I was working along and the scarf was ridiculously long but I was sure I needed to add just one more row… one more row… one more row (which is, consequently, a chant I have used while working on things when I’m awake).
I was working with a red hook… a red plastic hook. Maybe this is when I knew it was a dream? I don’t own red plastic hooks. As I was going along, oddly casting multiple loops of stitches onto the hook as if I were knitting, the hook snapped – right above the thumb rest. Loops started falling off the hook and I knew I would not be able to get them back. Someone, I don’t know who, brought me a bamboo hook (again, another item I don’t use). I was trying to pick up the loops with the bamboo hook but the handle of the red hook was slipping out of loops faster than I could get them on the new hook.
The loops kept falling off – and it seemed like those last three loops fell off an infinite number of times – me struggling to save my work…
And then I woke up.
I don’t read much into dreams but I just thought this one was fun enough to share.
I’m interested in what you all think this could mean – beyond I was working on that scarf just moments before I went to sleep. Have you had any crochet or knit related dreams before? Share in the comments below!
