So far this month has been a very busy one for me in Real Life Me with a long list of activities, happenings and appointments. But! I have also been working on several fun crochet projects. I lift my hat to grey January for allowing me hours of crochet without feeling guilty... I guess this is the silver lining of Miss January Grey. (I first saw January as a male... a Mister... But somehow along writing this blog post he transformed into a her... A bit innocent with grey and all... Does this make sense? Or am I rambling again?)
One crochet project is the scrappy blanket I started on during the holidays. It is cool, trendy and old fashion modern. Is that possible(?), you might ask, and yes it is possible.
I'm now half way through with this project and absolutely adore the simplicity in just choosing colors as I go, finding new color combinations and see how they react in surprisingly wonderful ways... Who would have guessed that cerise pink, purple and curry yellow followed by teal, creamy beige and white would look great??? I'm just saying... It is pure color therapy for a multi-colored girl like me and it lifts me up in the dull days of Miss January Grey. I'm using my acrylic stash for this project... The stash is big and the colors countless... I see endless fun of colored rows and I'm writing the pattern as I go...
Something else that has lifted me up to the skies are all the wonderful Nordic Shawls (check out this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one...) out there in Blogland and InstagramWorld.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have guessed this pattern would become so popular. I would never have imagined it in so many different color combinations. And never ever would I have expected so many sweet words and cheerful comments about this pattern and myself as the designer. I am humbled and speechless... I am blushing and taking it all in, filling my spirit with all this loveliness and discovering a new creative me in all this. THANK YOU!
The Nordic Shawl Pattern (purchase it here...) has really been a dream come true. I am inspired to design more, create more and share more. This is only the beginning...
Please, if you are making a Nordic Shawl,
email me a picture of your finished Nordic Shawl
together with your social media details.
I am planning a Nordic Shawl Potpurri for inspiration
to all of you who still haven't started on your own creation.
