a continuation......I promise I will finish this before 2012...
Cancer June 22 - July 11
You have true empathy. You can somehow sense just what crochet goodie at what time to produce for a friend or relative. Sometimes your loved ones get spooked - you start a baby afghan before somebody announces she is pregnant, you somehow know when the yarn is on sale and you have a gift for crocheting a "hot trend" before it even becomes a hot trend. So
what is this year going to be like for you in terms of crochet? You will still start a project before you actually know how you will use it (as usual). But take a break from all of that and make something really wonderful for yourself. You deserve it.
Here's your video to ponder:

You are the bold crocheter, always ready to try something new whether it's new yarn, a new technique or new tools for crochet. You love having your work noticed and it should be, you crochet with a great eye for detail. But I'm going to make a startling (to you) suggestion - scale it back a notch. Don't get upset - people will still notice and compliment your work. The reason you need to scale it back a notch? You will have new yarn to spin, in a sense. There will be chances for you to do more with your crochet, but you need to give yourself the time to follow that thread. Maybe you'll start (another) blog, maybe you and a buddy will go in for self publishing patterns, whatever it is, you are sure to get noticed.

I know you want to do your best work, but you need to stop being such a perfectionist. Yes, you skipped a stitch in the hat, but you are the only one who notices it. Everybody else thinks it's terrific. Plus your drive for perfection takes away the joy of crocheting for you. Maybe your gauge is too tight or maybe your hands ache, but your tension is showing up in your work. This year you will become a little easier on yourself. You will notice the dropped stitch but you won't show it to everybody that compliments your project. By allowing yourself some freedom to make a mistake, you will actually enjoy crocheting much more. And that is, as Martha Stewart would say, "a good thing".
