It struck me today how moods can change so many times within a day, never mind a week. The idea of making a square to reflect the whole week is therefore slightly unrealistic – every square would need to be multi-coloured, with stitches missing, knots, mistakes and all. So my squares instead will give more of a general impression, rather than a detailed explanation of the past week.
This week has been, all in all, fairly cheery. My step-daughter and her little girl returned from their travels just in time for us all to celebrate the little one’s fifth birthday. We all got together for a meal, and cake, of course, and a chorus or two of ‘Happy Birthday’. Family, singing, presents and cake – very cheery indeed!
So, on Wednesday I sat down, looked in my box, and found a lovely cheery pink shade of yarn called Pomegranate. Even the name makes me smile! And here it is…
Had I chosen to wait and make the square in the evening, it would have been a very different colour, as some news I received from my son’s college about his exams made me extremely angry, in fact probably too angry even to crochet. I’m glad I had made it in the afternoon!
I’ve also been fairly distracted recently with socks once again, of all sizes. I’m currently making two pairs, different sizes, for two little girls. Almost finished now, and then it will be socks for the boys. I really like the Regia sock yarn I’m using – that added to the cheeriness of the week too!
The stripy blanket has, in the meantime, been on hold. But I’m hoping to get back to it soon…
Happy Friday xx
