Into the Woods

18 rows as of this morning
My current color palette is very woodsy--dark green, dark brown-- but I'm not feeling as inspired as I should. Some friends came over yesterday, and they all had good things to say about it, so I have to imagine it's just my love of using *ALL THE COLORS* that has me less enthused.

The pattern is Rainbow Ripple again, and the colors are due to a bit of a stash busting need. Purchased the yarn nearly 3 years ago for something else, never got around to it. Now hopefully, this little blanket will be loved by one of my nephews.

As the school year draws closer (am I really saying that!?!?!) I am trying to move away from big projects and to smaller, complete-in-a-day type things. So hopefully, I will have this blanket and several other larger piece done before mid-August. I'm thinking at least a couple of MadCap shawls, Mine Once More and Daisy's Summer Lace for sure, and maybe one more blanket.

What are your goals for the rest of the summer?
Linking up with Ginny.

  1. I think I understand how you feel. I just finished crocheting a bag of stashed yarn and while it photographs wonderfully, I'm a little less than impressed by the thing in person. Trying to decide whether or not to line it. Part of me think I shouldn't spend any more time or money on something I don't love. Part of me wonders if lining it will make it something loveable. Shrug.

    I'm finding myself more inclined to make smaller, simpler projects right now, too. Maybe it's the summer???


I love knowing that you stopped by!
