Rainbow ripple blanket 90% finished
Granny stripe blanket 85% finished
New project just begun
Sometimes I love this one and then other times I look at it and I’m not so sure I love it. With any big project I usually have an oh-my-goodness-it’s-not-working moment, be it crochet, sewing or painting. The feeling nearly always passes I continue merrily on my way. This time it’s more I love it, oh now I’m not sure, oh I love it again!
Each new project is my new favourite so this rainbow ripple tops the list right now. I’m not sure where this love of rainbows comes from, especially as it hit at age 29. I’m also not sure yet where this rainbow ripple’s home will be, but I do have an idea in mind.
This past week has brought me food for thought about friendship, giving and gifts. If I only I had the time and finances to make gifts for the long list of people close to me. But I am thankful that list is long. I’ll work my way through it, one-by-one. Last night hubby and I gave our good friends their wedding present, three weeks before their big day. I made the gift myself with them in mind, and of course I hope when they open it they will love it. I already know they will appreciate it, I know they will “get it”. They will understand the gift is made with love and good wishes, and they will appreciate the time and effort I spent. Hubby and I are both looking forward to their wedding day and are grateful to be included in their celebration.
My baby ripple blanket it coming along slowly. I pick it up occasionally, like when I need a small, portable project to take on the train with me. I’m in no hurry with this project!
The large granny square for our couch hasn’t been touched in a while. I should probably fasten off where it is and add to it in the future, rather than having it draped over out couch with a ball of yarn attached to the end of it.
And of course as soon as I finished my big project, I started on another. Again, I have more projects on the go than I should but I can’t see it ever being any other way!
I really should try finishing one project before starting another instead of having about 16 projects on the go at once.
