today – yarn & happiness

Hi everyone! :) How was your weekend?

I managed to catch sight of this gorgeous sunset a few days ago:

We’ve been having some pretty beautiful skies here in Hoogeveen lately!

Today is a good day for me. I got to pick out some colors for a baby blanket I’ve been commissioned to make…
assorted Stylecraft Special DK colors
This is pure yarn therapy ♥

While digging through that stash I stumbled across this yarn I got a few weeks ago; it’s extremely chunky but very soft, and it hasn’t decided what it wants to become yet! I think I’m going for a snood or a cowl; what do you think?

I also got a start on this week’s mandala, which uses a lot of blue. WAY out of my comfort zone, but I kinda like it!

Days like this come along not too often, and thankfully I’ve learned to embrace them as they’re happening! :) The sun is shining in my craft room, both literally and figuratively, and I could not be more happy! But, for those days when the sun is NOT shining, I have this little reminder of days like this:
keep calm and crochet on button with yarn ends
Yes, that’s a teeny tiny button! :) Not sure where to pin it, for now it’s keeping itself busy with this week’s mandala’s yarn ends!

Have a great week everyone, I hope the sun is shining where you are!

  2. Hee, wat een leuke button *lol*
    ik word ook blij van je logberichtje, foto’s van haaksels en wolletjes zijn altijd leuk!

  3. I hope you will share the baby blanket WIP with us! I think making baby blankets is my most favorite type of project because as it works up, I can just imagine a sweet, cuddly new baby wrapped up in it.
