It's a lovely sunny day here today which is making me feel motivated to finish up some much needed cleaning and laundry that I started yesterday. I'm also planning on doing a little baking this afternoon and hopefully I can sneak in some crochet this evening. It sounds like a wonderful day to me. I'm getting closer to finishing my Granny Stripes Blanket, so I've been trying to focus on it over the last couple of days. I think I have about a foot or so to go before I can start the boarder. I can honestly say that I am enjoying each little cluster of every row. I find it soothing to cluster across the row and then back again, and all the bright cheery colours make me happy just to look at them. I have to admit, I'm already working on plans for a new blanket once this one is finished. Since learning to crochet I seem to always have a blanket on the go. It's comforting in some sort of way. This time I'm thinking of doing granny squares. I was contemplating a ripple blanket, but after doing the Granny Stripes, I thought changing it up a bit would be fun. I'm thinking I'll do more of a throw than a bed-sized blanket, and maybe use it for my window bench in my room. I also really would like to crochet up some pillow covers to add to the window bench so it's more comfortable to sit there. I see it becoming the perfect place to knit/crochet and have some tea.
So enough babbling, here is the mitten picture I promised:
I'm doing Polska by SpillyJane. These caught my eye the first time I seen her patterns, and I think they are simply gorgeous. Of course it just adds to the appeal that she was inspired by the pattern on her hand-painted mug - and if you read yesterday's post, you may remember I mentioned about my mug fetish, especially polka dot ones. I haven't been working on them that much right now due to trying to finish up the blanket and I've been starting some Easter projects, but I look forward to getting back to them soon.
Well, I should go put another load in the washer and then get on to the baking. Have a great weekend everyone!!
