August has arrived!! I still can’t understand my excitement for this particular month, but yay!!
Yesterday I watched Guardians of the Galaxy, and it was really good! 😀 Completely met expectations.
Now, it’s been rainy and cloudy around here lately. This is what I see when I look outside:
Skies are gray.
Still, the lighting was good enough that I took some pictures today of my CAL squares. I’m slowly inching towards #100.
But you know what’s not slow? I went to the craft store today to buy some more yarn, and there was already Halloween items out! Can you believe that?
Anyway, back to the squares:
93. Sequence Stripes: Just looking at the pattern in the book, I thought it was going to be a boring single crochet square, but it’s a little more interesting. Like garnishing a drink with a lime- only a little bit more interesting.
94. Gothic Square: I am highly pleased with my color choices here. Light and dark always work so well together. It really makes the orange and cream bits pop out. I don’t know if the picture is very good- it’s a brown border.
95. Kingcup: I had no idea what “Kingcup” meant. Apparently, it is a flower- it’s another name for a marsh marigold (also had not heard of). However, the flower does look pretty in photos. I suppose if I knew it was a marigold, I’d make the color yellow. Alas, it was not to be, so here we are:
I’m happy with these. I will be traveling this week for work (just a trip to New Jersey), so I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep up with the crocheting, but I’ll bring some yarn with me as always. 😉
