Good Evening dear reader, may I ask you a question? Does making make you happy? Making makes me happy. So much so that I have quite a few things on the go here at Start-A-Project-Central. There’s a bit of knitting :
It’s a scarf and it’s a bit longer than this now but I have yet to reach the half way mark and I’ve stalled rather. Mid-project ennui. C’est la vie. There’s no point in forcing these things, it’s supposed to be enjoyable?
There’s a strong urge to pick up a hook and fashion some more woolly eggs. I really want some more woolly eggs.
I’d also like to start a granny square blanket and maybe some socks. I know that I am really serious about the blanket because I’ve done a test square and ordered crochet hooks in the two sizes up from the one I used for the swatch.
Lovely as all these yarny things are, what has really been making my heart sing is this:
A trouser pocket. From yet another pair of Simplicity 3850.
Try as I might I could not work out why the blue bed sheet and the scrap of Liberty Strawberry Thief in fuchsia and lime was making me smile so. That was until today when I was gazing longingly at my neighbour’s cherry tree beginning to blossom against the backdrop of a crisp blue sky: These colours remind me of spring! And spring with its lengthening days and its buds and its blossom makes me happy. So happy that I had to capture the moment to share with you, wobbling precariously at the top of the climbing frame I took these:
If you’ve just had the other equinox, here’s something to remind you of the pleasures of that season too:
Whatever the weather and whatever the season where you are I hope that you are well. And happily crafting. Px.
