I spent a good portion of the day at the beach. Life doesn’t get much better than sand, surf, and crochet.
While my youngest son worked out the details of a sand mixture for a structure he didn’t get built, I made more circles and wove in more ends:
In between times, we walked on the beach, brightly colored beach umbrellas and towels on one side of us, the vast expanse of the ocean on the other. Toward the end of the day, as I was cleaning out the myriad buckets he had used to mix various batches of sand with water in varying proportions and the brown pelicans were swooping down to catch some dinner, I started thinking of all of the things I want to make that I haven’t yet.
As I shook the sand out of the towels and my yoga/beach blanket as best I could, I contemplated some other crochet goals and decided I needed to add them to my bucket list.
89. Corinne Frieden’s Eggstremely Cosy Set. I never knew there was such a thing, but after seeing this, it went from “never heard of one” to “have to have one” in a matter of seconds:
Directions for how to make your own can be found at The Very Savvy Snail.
88. Lion Brand Yarn’s “Park Slope Afghan”:
I became aware of this project when I saw it at another ravelry member’s projects page. I was completely entranced and decided right then and there that this had the potential to be the perfect blanket for a gift I have yet to make.
And so, my bucket list grows.
