In a way this little pile of squares represents a week in my life. Seven squares - seven days where I knew in the back of my mind that sometime that day, or that night, I would stop and sit down, choose a pattern, gather the yarn and crochet up a square.
So far a motif a day in May has been a pleasure.
So far there hasn't been a single day where I've not looked forward to my motif.
Last Monday I hooked up the Subtle Hearts pattern. Can you see the four hearts?
I made it sitting up in bed with my farmer boy next to me listening to a TED talk on his ipad.
It's actually a dishcloth pattern but I was dreaming of a hot water bottle pattern as the one warming my feet was burning me.
On Tuesday night I crocheted the Alter Ego square.
Once the girls were in bed, I sat on the floor in front of the fire and hooked up this trippy pattern.
On Wednesday we got our poodle Jo Jo and I took turns crocheting rounds of the Kata square and stroking his woolly coat. I forgot how comforting it is to have a warm, fluffy dog sleeping next to me.
I crocheted the Sunshine Lace square last Thursday in the car outside Miss Indi's first ever ballet class. It was freeeeeeezing in the car but oh so lovely to crochet away uninterrupted.
I love this square, it makes me think of the bright sunshiney autumn days we've been having. And she loved ballet. Yay!
On Friday I crocheted the Waterlily square in front of The Hunter. I love no TV during the week but I love movie night even more.
I love being able to crochet in the middle of the day on the weekends. In between taking Indi to singing and collecting the eggs, I sat on the couch and hooked the Colourful Bobbles square.
I did not enjoy making this square and I don't particularly like the outcome either. I guess it's OK to have some failures in my motifs month but I'm glad there aren't many.
To be honest, I think I like the back of the Colourful Bobbles square better than the front.
And last night, Sunday night, we watched some documentary about a horse whisperer and I crocheted the Tulip Square. Officially another dishcloth pattern. I love this pattern. I'm thinking I might have to crochet it again in another colourway on another day in May. But then again maybe not, I am loving the different square every day thing a bit too much.
All the pattern details for these squares are on ravelry - here.
So that's me, all caught up. And it's the start of a brand new week with another seven squares to come. And Miss Indi's high school transition day is tomorrow and Miss Pepper's prep orientation is too. Yikes. Might be a bit of an emotional week for me I think.
How about you?
What are you up to this week?
Anything exciting going on?
Are you liking my squares?
Do you have a fave?
See ya later square crocheter!
Oh and I almost forgot, I'm guest blogging over at Christie's today.
Why don't you pop over and say hi.
