Last weekend I suddenly got fed up with working on long-term projects. Heck, even a scarf is a long-term project for me! I wanted instant gratification. So I grabbed some spare wool and a crochet hook, and I made this mini mat:
I even embroidered a border. I made most of it in the car, on the way to various places over the weekend. I just had to wait until I got home to snip the trailing ends off. It was so very satisfying to start and finish something in one weekend - way out of proportion to the time and effort actually spent on the project! I could become a quickie project convert very easily.
