What a beautiful day! I've been sitting in the sun writing my class reports. Yes I know, not really on task but I can't help thinking about my gorgeous new yarn and the sunshine blanket I'm planning on making. I've already hooked a few granny squares to start with to see how the colour combinations work.
I think they look gor•gee•us! I'll call it my Sunshine Blanket when it's finished to remind me of the spell of sun we're currently having. The yarn I have bought to make it with is a lovely acrylic in a range of beautiful bright summer colours.
Quite a pallette! It's by King Cole and called Pricewise, not a very exotic name I know, but at £3.99 per 100g ball in such a spectrum of colours, I couldn't resist.
# B:T:W, the enormous granny square is my very first attempt at crocheting when I was 10 years old. My next door neighbour showed me how to do it, and encouraged me to make one square. The only problem was I didn't know how to stop, so it ended up quite large! I have loved it ever since, along with my very first home-made patchwork cushion (I was also 10 years old). They share many happy memories with me.
...and as for Tulips, I couldn't help but use these gorgeous tulips as my inspiration for something creative, especially as they are called Everlasting Mixture. It just seemed so apt for the launch of my blog.
