There is something so uplifting and satisfying about creating a blanket from lengths of string... or yarn.. this craft goes so far back that I doubt anyone knows when the first person took long fibers, twisted them together and then made knots to create cloth. I got behind in my deadline of Friday to finish week 4 and had to crochet like a madwoman on Saturday to catch up. Now I will have to do the same to meet the Friday deadline.. but that's okay with me. :-)
After the last row of crochet on Saturday I spent Sunday weaving in the ends so it was all nice and tidy.
As a person who has embraced the color pink into my life at this late age, this blanket has hit the mark for me clear to the center of my being. I love, love, love how this is looking. The fact that Lucy at Attic24 pulled these colors from the actual colors found in Sweet Peas and their stems and leaves makes this feel organic, too.
This is one whole color repeat.
It won't be long until this is done, I will be doing a border on it as Lucy always puts a lovely edging on her blankets. I usually don't as I like them as is.. but I'm doing the whole 9 yards on this one. I think of this one as my blanket pièce de résistance. :-)
Are you expecting a Mocha mug shot? OK, I'm happy to oblige. We are just loving this little creature. She is sweet natured, fun to watch play with Meeka.
Dayle is quite literally besotted with her. :-)
Our younger son and his family came to visit on Saturday and they brought their 3 month old Australian Shepherd, Ozzie. Oh my goodness, it was like a tornado hit! Here is a fuzzy photo of the 3 of them playing like whirling dervishes. :-)
We've had some snow last night and this morning and the temperature is predicted to drop this afternoon. So.. I'm having a debate with myself whether I should make the 20 minute drive through the countryside to swim when I might die coming home? :-) We'll see which side of myself wins.
What are you up to today? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
