I love this. I am so random by nature that this feels perfectly natural or “right” to me. So, first off. I have been, cough cough, crocheting. I started out crocheting when I was in high school and moved on to needlepoint when I was in college. I rather enjoy crocheting, but find that so many patterns look like they were a second thought instead of an original design. Due to the Fairy Godknitter, Joan, I saw this wrap that mesmerized me. It is fun. She is always an inspiration. I had seen the pattern and convinced myself that I would not like it or crochet it and to just get over it. That was six months ago. The last time Joan made a wrap (for a class she was teaching, those lucky lucky students), that was it for me. I ordered the back issue (Winter ’07) and told my Mother that the yarn would be a fantastic gift for me for Christmas. It was. I started it right away, but put it away because I have so many other projects going. Last night I picked it up again. Damn, it’s fun. I have so many things on needles, but this is what has captured my imagination. Check back with me in a few days to see if it holds.
We are in a mid-winter warmish time. I’m sure there is a technical term, but I don’t care. It is tolerable and next week it looks like we’ll be getting more crappy weather. I hate using my vacation time, but if you’ve ever crossed a large bridge in icy weather you’ll understand my desire to avoid driving on ice. I remember going across the Hwy. 70 Missouri River bridge and sliding the entire way with absolutely no control. I was young, but it scared the bejezzus out of me. I look back and wish I could have enjoyed the ride, but I didn’t. So, when it looks like ice, I beg off.
And, since I have revealed my inner weiny, I will leave you with my soundtrack of the day. Charlie Daniels and a personal fave “Orange Blossom Special”. Enjoy!
Have a great one!!!!!!!!!!!!!
