The morning after

Today was the day that the price for my amazingly productive weekend was exacted.

The internet went down, the weather couldn’t decide if it would rain on my laundry or let it dry, and there was a post-choir rehearsal parent meeting.

So, after finally getting a connection that seems to be holding (at least for the moment), I surveyed some of the projects I have in my queue at Ravelry and selected a couple that I would like to add to my crochet bucket list.

Coming in at 83 is this Crochet Vintage Striped Jacket seen here as it appeared when it made its debut in 1979:

and seen here as it is currently featured at the Red Heart website:

If you, like me, think that you absolutely need this sweater, you can get the free pattern here.

Next on the list and coming in at 82 is Claudia Lowman’s Fanciful Flower Potholder:

Claudia Lawson's Fanciful Flower Potholders

I love everything about these flowers: the bright colors, the amazing texture.

I don’t know that I could bring myself to actually use one, but I could definitely decorate my kitchen with a garden of them.

If you decide you want to do the same, you can find the pattern here and get started.

I am not entirely certain just exactly what tomorrow will bring (other than the internet repair person first thing in the morning), but I do know that if I had a sweater like the Striped Vintage Jacket to keep away the chill of the morning, or a potholder like Ms. Lowman’s Fanciful Flowers in my kitchen, even the most challenging days would be a little bit easier.

  1. My Gram used to make those potholders! We have a ton of them and definitely use them, in fact it might be time for me to make some clean ones. 🙂
