|Vintage Summer Postcard (by moi!)|
While at the Cape I worked on my crocheted fabric coasters -- hard on the wrist, but worth the time and effort! But I truly have to figure out an easier method.
Before the heat had a chance to take hold, I finished off some of my "gargantuan granny" afghans -- there's always one or two in the making at any point in time.
Then later when the heat finally did strike (over 90 degrees for almost two straight weeks), I switched to cotton yarns and tried my hand at mandalas -- some came out better than others, that's for sure.
But now with the cooler weather moving in, my thoughts turn to heavier yarns -- isn't this just delicious? Like a big wad of colorful cotton candy! Not sure yet what I'll make -- maybe a big chunky pillow cover . . . ?
And how about these luscious yarns -- awesome jewel-like colors! I think definitely a big floppy cowl to wrap up in when I take those long winter walks?
I hope to continue posting more frequently now that we're gravitating inside more often. Later today I'll throw some logs on the fire, pour myself a glass of wine and read through my favorite crochet and knitting magazines for ideas.
