July, August, the traditional holiday months. No school for the youngsters, everyone has sunny (normally that is) days off.
I joined Susannah Conway’s August Break, a leisurely, free, “post a day” in real holiday mood. Want to post a picture? Fine! Don’t feel like it today? That’s fine too.
Subject? Doesn’t matter, anything. How many? One, 5, none…. You see, the perfect holiday feel.
I thought that it also was a good time to start with a new project: I bought a whole lot of wool and started a patchwork plaid. Heaps of colorful squares needed, no complicated patterns, just grab whatever color lies near me and a crochet.
It’s been years since I did that, but apparently it’s a lot like swimming or riding a bike: once you know how, you keep remembering. A little “wobbly” at the start, but it all comes back in a sec.
It’s fun! I can take it with me to the fysio-therapist, to my mom’s, in the garden… much like my i-Phone actually.
I thought, I start with it now, then it just might be finished when winter comes. And then I can cuddle up underneath it… I need about 80 squares, 5 of them ready… 75 to go… piece of cake! And besides, the name of the wool is “Bravo”, nothing can go wrong, I already got my applause!
I took a picture of it that serves two purposes: Susannah Conway’s August Break, and my August Project.
Have a nice August break
