It has been very slow progress here at the virtual yurt because we have all been really unwell with some kind of horrible cough and flu like illness that’s lasted on and off for weeks. I tried picking up my crochet and popping a few stitches in from my sick bed but trying to concentrate made my eyes actually hurt! Each stitch was painful for my head so I had to just take a little break.
So I’ve finally reached the end of part 6 and I’m hoping that last bit looks ok. In my mind once I’d decided on the light pink for the little tulips I wanted them to look like they were bright colour in the night time garden. The blues and purples representing the night sky.
I am as usual a bit undecided about the next colours. I want to keep breaking things up with sections of cream but I don’t want it to look to boring either. It’s the ‘roses’ coming up yet and I can’t decide if they shall be in the new bright pink I bought this week or if they are going to be made with the colour changing yellow yarn I have in my stash.
I definitely wanted the yellow originally because I think the little flecks of colour will make them look a bit like the tea roses I have in my garden and remind me of my Nan’s rose garden too, but I’ve seen some flowers coming up that remind me of the yellow water hyacinths we have in our pond so am tempted to save the yellow for that. However the water hyacinths in the pond are a flat bright yellow so actually I might use the plain yellow I’d used earlier for those and do a side of roses in this colour change yellow then the bright pink in the roses before I decide for sure!
I had to buy a different cream yarn to what I’ve been using this week which gave me a bit of a sulky lip. I was given a huge amount of hobby craft vouchers for my birthday so I intended to get some more of their budget DK cream. The ONLY colour they didn’t have was the cream!!! I’ve bought the Women’s Institute cream instead. Hopefully it will look and feel ok. I actually really liked the one I was using before even though it was a cheapy one!
The little dark star has gone to soft play with Daddy so I’m off for a turbo shower then as much hooky as I can cram in before they get home and I tackle the sunday dinner.
