I started working on my scrap afghan. I decided to use my new Blushing Bride Square instead of a traditional granny square motif. As I mentioned in a previous post, I'll be working with my Vanna's Choice yarn scraps. My squares measure 6" with the aran weight yarn and a "K" hook. I love playing with the different colors and making the pretty flowers. This is a great winter project that offers a lot of color during this monochrome time of year.
My Eugene Throw is just about at the half-way point. I haven't worked on this for a few days and am looking forward to getting back to it this afternoon. I'm pleased with the way it's turning out. It's going to be a very warm blanket as each row of the cables has a row of single crochet behind it. In addition, I think it will look nice on the foot of my bed or on the wing back chair in my bedroom.
Dear son and I have had a good week following our long Christmas break. It feels good to get back into our routine and the daily flow of things.
We got a dusting of snow last night and big white flakes are drifting down now as I type this note. Not sure how much accumulation we are supposed to get, but it is pretty.
The weekend should be nice and quiet; I'm looking forward to it.
Wishing each of you the type of weekend you desire.
Joy in the day.
