You know that beautiful stillness that comes over the world when it snows? That quietness that is so rare in our busy world? I'm lucky enough to live in the country where I can enjoy it. I soaked in the hot tub last night with the snow tickling my face. It felt so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o g-o-o-d!!! Anyway, it snowed all night, all morning and it is now past noon. And yes, still snowing!
Here is the cure for winter snow... Hot tea in one of my favorite mugs
lazy orange cranberry bread with a pot of crocheted flowers.
I also started a new throw. The yarn is fine and I think it would make a wonderful tablecloth.
The pattern is at Caron and it is the Woodcliff throw.
Isn't it pretty?
I found that you have to use a waaaaay smaller hook to get the correct guage though.
I bought the Spa yarn, and decided I am using the off white color instead of the taupe because I think taupe is icky!
Taupe IS NOT a color?! (see?)
I mean really?!
Here are a couple of squares I worked up with this yummy yummy yarn. It feels like silk!
Another box of yarn of course!
I think of the miles of yarn and thread and whatever that I have crocheted, knit, whatever over 50 years and it just makes me tingle all over when I buy new yarn and I have a guest room full!
I am a sick woman I tell you! I love yarn!
I'm kind of a frugal yarn buyer though and usually settle for what is on sale or use the old standby Red Heart. But... This was a bit spendy and oh so yummy worth it. It has bamboo in it and it's silkiness is delicious!
It is a treat to work with such a lovely yarn. And, I think I'd like to make a shrug or cardi to wear. There are some nice patterns for those too at Caron.
I will have plenty of time to work on my project as I went to the Orthapaedic surgeon today and will be getting some hardware removed from my left ankle in a couple of weeks.
Is that a great excuse or what to sit on my b*** for a few days and heal and crochet?! YAY!!!
Now it's time for some quick housework B4 the hubby gets home...
And... Yes, it's still snowing... Sigh...
