Hello and Happy Saturday everyone!!
What a happy Saturday morning it is the Hayloft household today. The sun is shining, with the promise of snow on it’s way and it feels like Springtime making me feel full of happiness and hope. It is such a lovely feeling, after a tough week teaching, to feel the sun on your face, feel the spring chill in the air and see the bulbs and plants slowly unfurling back from their wintery sleep. But the best reason for my Springtime happiness is the delivery of my Springtime Crochet project; my beautiful Peruvian wool arrived from Deramores this morning.
Would you like a peep?
Isn’t it exciting? Such a delight to see the amazingly vivid and rich rainbow of colours, I just had to share my glee and delight with you. It gives me such happiness.
I’m going to use all of these beautiful 24 colours to make my crochet poncho, as I mentioned in this post, and I have many ideas for the design of it. I’m dreaming of lovely stripes and textures that will make my heart ZING! And keep me warm in the chilly summer festival and summer holiday nights.
Shall we look at more photos of my gorgeous yarn? I just love the excitement of opening the parcel and seeing the skeins all cosy and curled up inside, waiting for me to reveal them. It was like opening a box of sweets. I gave them a squeeze and inhaled deeply their wonderful wooly, yarn scent. Oh I love the smell of yarn, I really do. I savoured it’s newness and it’s promise.
The inspiration for this project comes direct from the Peruvian mountains and the ponchos worn and used for practical purposes on Machu Picchu and the surrounding area. Instead of being woven, I’ll be using a 5.5mm hook as it’s classed as chunky and it should work up quite quickly. Amazing crochet happiness for my Springtime project.
So happy, happy Saturday and I hope you are enjoying making or planning your Springtime crochet happiness. I am. :O)xxx
