First off I'd like to thank you, my dear readers and friends, for the heartfelt and soothing comments you left on my last post. Your kindness was a balm to my aching heart and was deeply appreciated. We're getting a bit used to the new normal of no little golden furry friend with us all the time.
I am looking forward to starting a new crochet blanket on Friday with Lucy at Attic24 blog. She designed the blanket, selected the colors which are sold as a package at Wool Warehouse, an online yarn store. This one is called the "Sweet Pea Trellis".
This will be the 4th "Lucy blanket" I've made. This one leaped out at me for the pretty colors and the unique design, to me it does look like a trellis with pretty sweet pea flowers growing up. My first one was a rainbow granny stripe, then a smaller one where the colors merge in an interesting way, the last one the Woodland blanket which I've thoroughly enjoyed.
I've added two more sections in my cowl by Alicia Paulson, I'm trying to get it done before Friday but that's not looking like it will happen.. but you never know.
The vet clinic made this for us and Dayle brought it home, you have to bake it to harden it which we've done. I get all emotional looking at it.. but I'm glad they did it for us. Kristi made a Christmas ornament similar to this last year which I will treasure.
I'm heading back to the pool today. I had to miss several weeks of lap swimming when I was ill with bronchitis, I got better but didn't swim during the holidays because.. umm.. well.. I didn't feel like it. BUT.. today is the new year so I'm packing up my swim bag and getting back into the swim of things.
