Good Day for Crocheting

The weather here  in south/central Ohio has been crazy.   Long winter, a hint of spring for a day or two, then rain for weeks, leaving things cold and damp at best and flooded at worst.  I went from wearing long johns with sweatpants, turtlenecks and sweatshirts just three days ago, to sweltering in shorts and tank top for two days.  Today I'm back to sweatpants and turtleneck and I'm still cold.  Blech.  Good weather for crocheting, though.

I needed something warm and comforting on this dreary day, so I fixed a second cup of tea with some buttered toast and now I'm headed to the couch to see if there's anything on TV worth curling up with an afghan to watch.

I'm almost done with the latest granny square baby blanket and was intrigued by this ripple or zig-zag blanket that Mindy did and asked where she got the pattern so I could give it a whirl.  I found Our Best Baby Afghans (Leisure Arts #2853) and ordered it the other day so I'm hoping it's in my mail on Monday in time to get started before WIP Wednesday.




Until  next time ...

Your weather sounds like MY weather! But boy, there's something in the air that's really kicking me down this the last several days.. ALLERGIES!!! I'm not sleeping good at night.. Hope this passes soon.. But in the meantime, you're right. It's the best time to get all crocheting and crafting done! I'm heating up the hot water for tea right now, and ready to watch a little t.v. before I call it a night myself! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! ~tina

Hope your book comes soon! I'm off to go snuggle under a blanket to crochet, too. We had to resort to turning the heat back on for a little bit today because it is so cold and damp. -shiver-

I'm lucky then, hardly any rain here in wales UK. Not as warm as last moth though,cold strong winds but sunshine , so sitting in the conservatory in the afternoons is perfect for crochet.
Can you tell me how you put those blue words in your post that link to other sites or pages. Been trying to do that for ages and dont know how. Thanks

I have that book and I think it's great. I made the "Rock-a-bye Rainsong" blanket (you can see it on my blog) and there are lots of other great patterns I want to try. Also there are many interesting edges to the afghans which you could of course try on any blanket you wished. I think you'll enjoy it!
