Beautiful Colors for Spring Crocheting
These are my new favorite colors!! I was so excited when I found this Lionbrand Mandela yarn called Pegasus. I'm making a light weight blanket with this yarn to match my dream decor below!
Although there have been a few issues with this yarn, which surprised me. First, if you enlarge the picture you can see that in the lightest peach section, there are a few blue stitches. I am pretty bummed about that because it makes the blanket look like it's a bit dirty in that spot.
Another issue was that there was a knot where three pieces of yarn intertwined. Once it got the knot undone, it was a 5 inch piece of yarn tangled on two ends of the yarn skein. I've never seen that before.
Then, as I was crocheting away, I bumped into a a section of yarn that had dwindled down to 1 ply. Ugh.
I'm very attached to these colors and I like the yarn texture, so I will forge ahead!!!
I so love these colors by Ace Hardware and want to use them to freshen up my living room. Ahhh, painting, not my favorite task. I think I can stay motivated enough though because I love the color combination so much!!
Below is my winter hyacinth bulb that I had found at Walmart and brought me so much joy and aroma therapy whilst doing the dishes. My mom said to "give the bulb a rest" and then plant it in the back yard. I'm not sure how long to "rest" the bulb, I think a few weeks or so.
Back soon, Heather
