Daily WordPress Prompt: What’s your ideal Saturday morning? Are you doing those things this morning? Why not?
In the winter time I love to sleep in and snuggle in my blankets. After I wake up I enjoy reading and just laying in the quiet room. Sometimes I play games on my cell phone or text my sister. After a while I like to sit in my chair with a cozy throw and work on a project – sometimes it is crochet, sometimes knitting, sometimes tatting, sometimes painting or a sketch. I love that I can see the snow covered trees outside from where I sit. Since it is Christmas time now I’ve been listening to Christmas music but at other times I enjoy listening to classical piano or guitar. I listen to a lot of different types of music also though.
In the summer I like to go outside in the mornings and read on my swinging bed and listen to the birds. I took the top covering off so I can soak up the sun.
Today I was lazier than usual and spent more time sleeping and less time doing anything else. I haven’t read anything yet but I plan to go to bed early and read until I’m tired. My husband went to play poker so I have the room to myself. He often watches movies and disturbs my peace. I did finish a crochet dishcloth though. I wanted to do something different so I added a square of a different color in the center. I don’t like to weave in ends that much so I “carried” the thread I wasn’t using by crocheting over it until I needed it again. When I wanted to pick up the wine color to use on the row above I just slipped my hook through a couple loops of the stitch and pulled the loop up and then did a slip stitch. Then I just worked the stitches I needed in that color and crocheted over the other color (the variegated) so I could just switch when ready. I think it looks great! The pattern for this dishcloth is on Ravelry and if you are interested you can read my notes to see how I made this one.
