...I've been spending some of my time lately revisiting my flower square crochet pattern; I'm slowly filling up a basket with a whole new batch of these colorful squares. This time, however, I'm dipping into my cotton/cotton blend reserves instead of my woolly yarns to make them.
I've been using my cotton or cotton-like yarns because I have so many single balls and skeins lying around that I decided it was high time to use them up. Why so many singles? Most probably because I'm always looking for new yarn to trim my pillowcases (I'm always searching for more colors...), end up buying a single ball or skein, and by the time I find that it works with a certain pillowcase I just made up, it's been discontinued and I can no longer use it because a single ball/skein only goes as far as making 3 or 4 pillowcases... Grrrrrrr! Doesn't discontinued yarn and fabric drive you nuts?! It seems to me that the turnover in yarn and fabric design is much too fast... Don't you?
Anyhow, coming back to my floral squares... What am I planning to make with them? Well, I had this idea and I only need about a handful more to start crocheting them together to try out this idea of mine. I will share it all with you as soon as it's all done and I know that my idea is a good one!
However, whether my idea works or not is all fine by me because I simply love making these floral squares! I've dumped all my singles into a big bag which I lay beside me as I make myself comfortable on the sofa -- hopefully by a nice fire while the weather outside is November-like and very stormy -- I dip into my bag full of yummy colors, get my hook going, and end up with what is pure cotton candy to me! 'Hope you've also been relishing your November by taking the time to do the things you love... Thanks for the visit and I'll be back hopefully very soon with some more goodies...
