The head cold I had at the market on Sunday developed into a full-blown something-or-other by Sunday night, so I spent the next couple of days hugging a tissue box, chugging vast volumes of orange juice, and trying to crochet on the couch while watching the trashy, nasty, yet thoroughly entertaining first season of Gossip Girl. I returned to work today, in a miserable headachey funk.
But it's amazing how my health and mood immediately improved with a strawberry hot chocolate from my hot drinks purveyor, and a bit of shoe shopping after lunch. Oooh. They're so pretty! And on sale! Inspired by my new black suede t-bars, I've decided to make a skirt. Same pattern as always, but it's a winner so I won't be swayed.
And the crochet that's been done on the couch has produced a couple of keepers. Here's one I started a year ago on retreat at Minnamurra and finally finished on Monday morning. I may very well be camouflaged in the desert with this one. It's Malabrigo Merino Worsted, one of my favourite yarns, in the colour "Glazed Carrot".
And here is Julie's hat for Central Australia in "Olive" Malabrigo , finished while I sat in the surgery waiting room yesterday morning. One down, one almost finished, then two to to go. Easy. This one is called Durango. It was a lot of fun to make.
You know where to go for more inspiration, don't you?
