I have temporarily made peace with the weather and am making good used of the enforced hibernation time. Which is strange, for not so long ago, I would have relished the excuse to curl up on the settee and pretend that the world outside did not exist. However now, as it begins to get lighter in the mornings and tiny hints of spring quietly appear I can feel the urgency of new beginnings, the unfurling of minute leaf tips, the building of nests, the greening of the fields and want to respond.
I want colour and warmth and creativity - so what better way than to crochet another blanket - to tide me over until spring truly starts and summer sends a post card saying she is on her way.
I have been lucky enough to get my hands on a pile of rehomed stash - in so many shades of blue
Yarn cakes beginning to form,
to take over and
give me colour option ideas.
Nearly all wound, still more to do, but I best get on - can hear the kettle calling.
It is still raining..................
