Very rarely do we get good weather on a UK Bank Holiday weekend, so when I awoke to glorious sunshine on Saturday morning, it filled me with optimism. Nothing concrete was planned, which is always the way I like it. It would be fair to say that I prefer to let things happen spontaneously. I tend to act on impulse a lot of the time, something that my family would definitely say is an irksome trait of mine. My mum would often remark 'you do take notions Sharron'. Well yes it's true, I do. But hey, that's me and at my age I doubt I'll change any time soon.
Time spent with family & friends and plenty of good food featured highly over the last 3 days. We went to the Kite Festival held at a popular local park. It was very busy
especially the beer tent, with plenty of attractions to keep everyone amused. I particularly liked the old fashioned Ferris Wheel, each carriage brightly painted.
Aside from the outdoor pursuits, it was perfect conditions for some hooky time. Do you like my latest colour crush project? As per usual I've taken a Jan Eaton pattern, and added my own twist. This is the lovely 'Willow' block. I followed the first 5 rounds, then improvised my own two rounds to make it into a solid square. I plan on crocheting them together once I've got a decent stack of them.
My oh my do I love this vibrant cotton yarn. Some Catania, some Sublime Egyptian, I just can't get enough of it. I've been pretty good though you know? I haven't bought any new yarn for ages *polishes halo*. Hence why most of the projects you'll see are made from the same stash. I am tempted mind, especially when I see amazing projects online like this & this, you can see why I'd be desperate to replenish my stocks with a more subdued palette!
Until then, I'll just have to sit at my desk and salivate.
Is there such a thing as Y.A. (Yarn-a-holics Anonymous)?
I think I might need to seek therapy.....! :)
