Yesterday was a holiday but the weather was so strange that we stayed home most of the day. We did go bike riding for a couple of hours in the morning as usual (I have a new bike so I had to go try it out. It's bright red, has 24 speeds, and it's so much more comfortable than my old one) but then it started raining so we were totally soaked when we got home.
So after lunch I grabbed my book (very good read, by the way, but I'll post about that later) and my new crochet project and settled down on the couch.
Remember I said I wanted to start a new blanket ? Well, this is it ... I fell in love with this Cath Kidston blanket that was featured on CL a while ago, and thought I'd try it out. It's a simple striped blanket but I really like the overall finished effect.
The colors, though, I had to change. I'm not a particular fan of pink, or yellow, or light green, so I picked some darker colors instead. Not sure if it will turn out just as nice, but so far it's not looking bad. I'll keep you posted on the progress, but I have a feeling it's going to take me quite a few months.
What else is someone to do on a rainy day ? Well, bake some muffins of course. In this case, A. baked and I ate them (it's usually the other way around, at least when it comes to baking, but with so much going on how could I leave the couch, right ?)
