Hello my friends. I hope you had as relaxing and as nice of a weekend as I had. I played Scrabble and Word With Friends on my iPad, crocheted flowers and added to my blanket project, watched TV and enjoyed spending time with the family.
The worst part of this pattern or any granny square type pattern are all the color changes.. and all the ENDS.. and all the weaving in of the flipping little offending yarn tips and snipping of them. I don't save my ends.. I happily toss them in my little refuse basket by my chair.
The next challenge in this pattern is trying to come up with unique color combinations and making sure you try not to do many of the same design. Some are prettier than others.. some are downright.. why did I do that? But interestingly when you put them together they all turn out okay? I try to spread out the more intense colors with the pastels.. but it's hard to not put similar colors near each other. That might be the part of this that makes you somewhat crazy.. but it's okay.. right?
Then I have favorites.. this one in the middle below is one of them. I like the raspberry, purple and turquoise.
Which one of them is your favorite color combo?
At first I was doing one flower at a time and adding it.. then I did more at a time and added them.. now I'm doing a bunch of centers and will try that. I like to mix it up so I don't get bored. But really.. you can't get bored with this.
Today I head off to my Daughters of the American Revolution meeting, then leave that and go directly to the pool for swimming. I will come home dragging. Dayle is doing much better now. He wants to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and good wishes. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
