I just realized that most of my planting is "done" - at least the first stages. Most of the seeds have been started. So I have accomplished something.
I've been busy crocheting. I have 11 squares left for my granny square shawl that I've been working on. Right now I'm working on an additional project with yarn that I picked up in Scottsdale Arizona. I'm taking a break from the squares for a bit. Soon I'll finish the squares and get back at it. I have been working on it however - this is the first piece that I'm blocking. You lay out the piece pin it to a surface then steam it or wet it down. In the case of the squares, I spritzed them with water and let them dry. After I have most of the finished squares blocked I'm going to experiment with putting them together. Right now I have a few ideas floating around in my head. I want to make sure that one of them looks the way it does in my head.
Yarn Site I'm obsessed with
Blocking the squares
Scottsdale yarn - beautiful color change. This will be my "Desert Memories Shawl"
We had a wonderful very enriching vacation. I'm still trying to process the experience. It will defiantly be a blog post soon. The other day I was thinking while I was crocheting and I realized just how connected crocheting makes me feel to my mom. This was further highlighted when my aunt said to my cousin, "...just like Auntie Bette used to do."
