It's been a long while since I crocheted.... like months! Which is so unlike me, because when I'm not holding a paintbrush... I'm holding a crochet hook. These hands are never idle!
Picnic time is just around the corner and there's nothing I love more than taking a blanket anywhere on a nice day, fanning it out in the breeze, and laying upon it. I have done many a crochet project, but never a blanket. It's time consuming and since my hands are never idle I also tend to jump from project to project. I fear I will start a blanket, have good intentions, but never finish it.
I'm determined though. I have a whole lot of granny sqaures to go and have only whipped up a 1/3 of the inner circles that will get another row or two, making them squares. The colors I chose remind me of summer and sunshine. They give me thoughts of pina coloda's and steaks on the grill. I plan on letting the inner circles be all the color, the border a stark white.
If I keep focused and strive towards my goal of sunshine and cocktails I think I will get there! I'll just keep chugging like the little train that could...
" I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!"
