I am excited to try to complete this year's BAM (Block a month) CAL (Crochet A..long) on Ravelry. You can find the group page here. I tried last year's CAL, but am scrambling to finish up as I was completely derailed by the realities that our lives can sometimes become.
I was not too keen about going out and buying a whole new color scheme for this project so I began to see what I had. Just recently, I finished my Nordic Shawl and have quite a bit of leftover yarn for the stash. The leftovers include some pretty shades of blue. I like blue. I do.
My kitchen is my favorite place to be. I have been using the same dishes for nearly three decades now as my mother and I have collected all these beautiful blue and white treasures. For the first time ever, I have a fireplace in my kitchen.
It is an odd room, but I am adjusting to this old house. My grandmother's hutch sits in the corner and I have placed a rocking chair near the fire. This rocker needs a blanket so I have decided to use my leftover blue and white yarn to make a blanket complimenting my dishes.
It should be cozy.
