A basket of crochet and a frozen coffee drink in the evening. Granny square sweaters from 1975 in a library find. More vintage granny squares from the same book. A basket of crochet and hot coffee the next morning. Is there any doubt where my head is at lately? I would have thought by now my little love affair with crochet would be waning, but it seems not.
I resisted the lure of that basket this morning, drank my coffee, ate my Luna bar and vitamins like a good girl. I even exercised a little bit (wonder of wonders!)
But hook-in-hand or not, I’ve got it on the brain. I’m thinking about a second blanket to go with the as-yet-unfinished Granny Square Sampler, both of which could live in the van with the new pillows. I’m thinking about a tiny sweater for the new niece we will meet late this fall (yes, a girl will finally be joining the cousinly ranks, after all of these boys!) And believe it or not, I am seriously thinking about a version of that granny square sweater in the second photo for myself (the blue one on the left). My family is trying to dissuade me from that last idea, but I think in the right colors, it would look great with a close-fitting tee and a pair of jeans.
And when I’m not thinking about crochet, I am thinking about loom knitting. I don’t do much of that myself anymore, but I’ve had requests for more tutorials since I wrote up the neckwarmer one, and I’ve been playing around with some ideas that I hope you’ll like.
My world is an exceedingly yarny one right now.
How about you? Any projects (or potential projects) getting you fired up right now?
