As I write this, it is the first morning in weeks in which the weather is cool and overcast. And just in time. The anxiety caused by summer seasonal affective disorder was about to kick in full-swing. Living in this state (both geographically and in opposition to its clingy relationship with that bright orb in the sky) is getting harder to deal with. But I'm feeling a bit calmer now that the sun is hidden behind the clouds and I've broke out the crochet.
Fall and winter are the happiest seasons of the year for me. And Autumn is almost here! Whatever I put aside towards the beginning of summer, I come back to in September. It's when I spend the most time at the Happiest Place on Earth. It's when I start choosing tea over coffee at breakfast, but cave to the craving for my late night McCafe caramel mocha. It's also when I am most motivated about everything.
One of those things coming around again is the All Wrapped Up Granny Square Afghan. I know — we've gotten our hopes up before about finishing this. But inspiration hit me early this week while taking another look at the grannies for the Spirit of St. Louis blanket. A simple alteration made the difference: the granny squares needed an extra round of white to give it the look I was going for. Good thing I slacked off during these past few months and did not sew it together.
Was there anything you put away at the end of May to await for a rainy day?
