This week has been quite amazing, the weather has been sunny and warm at times yet really quite cold at other points. I love this transition stage from Summer to Autumn, but sadly it has it draw backs too! Often my body takes time to adjust resulting in me becoming unwell. I can see it coming, but normally I am too late to stop the tidal wave and I end up flattened for a day so with a nasty cold. So Friday was spent cosyed up in my favourite girly chair, with lots of tissues, tea and a lit fire. I snoozed and crocheted my way through the day and evening.
Having this unexpected extra time to crochet has meant a change of mind of mind in relation to my textured hexagon blanket! I have found loads of Rowan cashsoft and Sidra sublime. They have a very similar soft texture and I am loving it without the harsher accrylic. So the textures are all out except for the lovely cashsoftness! This has meant spending money to buy the linking colour that was going to be pink accrylic. I have decided to go for a cream cashsoft instead. Hey, isn't it a girls perogative to change her mind? Especially when the girl in question is a tinsy bit poorly!!
This morning I woke with a definitive desire to blow away all the cobwebs. It's hard to describe the feeling and I will be interested to know if anyone else gets it. Although I am not 100% better, it is like an absolute desire to get rid of the sickness both from me and the house. The windows have to be flung open, the bedding washed and hung out and all traces of illness banished! I then have to get myself out of the house to find some air! Thankfully today was the perfect day for this, cold but sunny. Maggie the dog also needed out after humouring me yesterday and so we agreed we would spend the morning in the country park before I met my friends in the country park cafe.
I thought I would photograph Maggie for the blog, but she was too excited to stay still after yesterdays enforced day of rest!
