This morning, in the afterglow of Christmas, I awoke to find that we had gotten somewhere in the neighborhood of 8″ of snow.
Just as I was beginning to enjoy the prospect of a full pot of coffee and an errand-free day enforced by mother nature, the power went out.
After a brief moment of panic, I located fireplace matches, filled the kettle with water, lit a burner on the stove, and got out the French press that I use for special occasions. Surely, I thought, an historic (for these parts) snowfall qualifies as a special occasion.
Wanting to visually document this bit of weather history, once I had had some of the much needed coffee, I ventured out-of-doors with my camera and took this picture:
Perhaps it goes without saying, but I worked indoors today, and being housebound left me itching to start a new project.
This is the one that came to mind:
Today, I decided to quell both my lust for this bag and my desire to have an object that embodies everything I love about Dunkin’ Donuts by making this bag in colors that would evoke the best of both.
Armed with Red Heart Super Saver yarn colors of Coffee, Shocking Pink, and Pumpkin, a 3.5mm Etimo hook, and this pattern from Pierrot Yarns, I renewed my quest for the perfect bag.
Here is a visual record of the progress I made before sunset:
Once I crochet the remaining 16 rounds and the snow clears, I will embark on a quest to find the perfect lining.
