Color and Cravings
Good Monday morning to you! I hope your weekend was spectacular. Mine was once again jam packed with lot's of fun stuff. But now it's Monday and time for me to unwind a little. I do so love Mondays! It's nice to be able to ease into the week with a carefree laid back day. I try not to plan anything on a Monday, including appointments etc. I just sit back and let it happen.
Over the weekend the yummy yarn that I ordered arrived. Wonderful Peruvian wool and it is incredibly soft and great fun to work with. I went straight to work and wound it all up into nicely shaped balls...with a little help from my cat of course!
What could I possibly be making with all that brightly colored yarn you might ask?
This....... my newest crochet project. I have always wanted to make a ripple blanket and when I saw the lovely pattern on Lucy's blog I had to give it a bash! I am really loving how bright and beautiful it is starting to look. What a colorful cheery blanket to chase the winter blues away. If I keep plodding away at it I am pretty sure that I will have it done before next winter shows it's face. Of course I am still plodding away too with my lovely granny squares. I keep making them and piling them into my crochet bag. Maybe, just maybe I will have two scrumptious blankets to sit under... bliss. I find as I am getting older that I crave color more. I always used to like more subdued pastel shades in everything from clothing to home decor. Now it is the bolder the better. Strange isn't it how sometimes your tastes change.
Well color and cravings were my title of this post today and here is what I have been craving..._
... Apricots! Isn't that a strange thing to have a craving for! Believe it or not I even passed up chocolate and ate apricots instead. Unbelievable I know! I will probably eat them until I have had my fill and then I won't want them anymore. We humans are a strange bunch, don't you think? Or is it just me? So how about you... what strange edible thing are you craving lately?
Enjoy your Monday!
