It is hot here in Kansas! The themometer has been only in the mid-90's but the heat index has been topping out at over 105 degrees F. Since its so hot, what else do I do but peruse blogs, Ravelry, and Crochetville, and become inspired by so many other talented crafters out there. here are some of the things I'm working on.....
The Flower Box Afghan: This will be a X-mas gift for my niece. her room in jungle inspired and I couldn't resist these colors together. I'm trying to get a head start on my Christmas gifts, so I won't be out-og-my-mind when that time of year rolls around again!
Next is my 2nd Floaty Fall Scarf. My first is here. This one I did in thread and I'm so pleased with how its turning out. I only have about 3/4 of the final row left to do. Yippee!
I checked out a book called 200 Crochet Blocks and have been reading and just dreaming away about all the beautiful squares in there. (Only a true yarny knows my joy!) I sit by the pool and flip thru the pages at my leisure and just look,look, and look. I tried one, you can tell I've been inpsired by flowers lately. This on is #54.
I love the dimentionality of this block, much like the Flower Box afghan blocks.
Finally, I saw this bag over at Sew-ritsy-titsy's blog. Everything about it screamed at me to make one. Have you ever had a project step out at you like that? I literally ached until I could check the book out from the library, scavenge my stash for all my cotton, and start....pant, pant.
Here all my darling, darling hexagons:
