puddles being sweet
nut tuna again on collard wraps
leftover lunch of quinoa veggie sushi
(i save small glass jars and was able to reuse a wasabi jar to hold my soy sauce and ginger.)
the granny squares
oh, the granny squares. what a ride it's been. i just want to have this bright happy blanket on my bed before gardening occupies my free time. so i've been rushing to get it done and not noticing that my squares are coming out all different sizes. i'm also not crazy about some of them. do i just keep going or start over? i've elicited the advice of an expert crocheter and am waiting to see what she says before i make a decision. maybe the size differences won't matter much?
here's the dilemma as i see it - i could keep going, spend another 20 hours or so to finish it up with the potential of it not looking as good as it could (uneven and all). but it would be done, and if anything it will be bright and colorful. plus i can always make another.
-or- i could just scrap the whole project and start over again when i have enough of the same type of yarn. i'm leaning towards just trucking through and finishing it up. it's just hard to be motivated to do something when you know that it won't be "perfect" in the end. but how can i know that it won't be perfect, and what's it matter anyway? what would you do?
here's a better photo of the squares on a white background in natural light, minus a few new ones.
i hope you all had a nice week. it's hard to believe it's friday already, and that next week will be march! yesterday john and i celebrated 5 years together. he's been extra sweet and made me tea last night. he also said he'll take me thrifting later. i'm going to make him his favorite chocolate peanut butter banana shake for lunch, and i've also got an idea for a chocolate avocado mousse/chia pudding parfait for dessert tonight. john's got a major sweet tooth.=)
speaking of, i told one of the girls i sit that she had quite the sweet tooth. she shouted "yes, i've got two sweet tooths actually!" and proceeded to point them out to me! ha! kids!=)
wishing you all extra sweetness this weekend!
