It Might As Well Be Spring


It is a cold and rainy today
but in my mind it is spring and I am having
a picnic in a green meadow.
On my new picnic blanket.
Butterflies and games and finger sandwiches.
You are all invited.


Featured: my work-in-progress
gigantic picnic blanket.
It will be some time until it is done
but my nephew Noam is already enjoying it.

  6. I love your picnic WIP. What a great way to use leftover yarn -- it makes your blanket look so festive and fun. I can only imagine the great conversations you'll have with friends over sandwiches and tea (do you drink tea) or lemonade.

    I finally got a new post up, so I'm enjoying some free time come and see what you are up to.

    Happy day, Amalia!

    What beautiful eyes your nephew has :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. You nephew Noam is such a willing subject to pose for you! Love the patterns this yarn makes that you show in your second capture.Yeah, I KNOW what you're talking about, a few years ago I knitted one and crocheted the other adult-size blankets for 2 of my youngest grands - I think it took me half a year. After that I stayed off the breinaalden for a while:):) Many thanks for linking to All Seasons and wishing you a productive week (much speed in crocheting, lol).

  42. OMG he is just adorable!! :) He sort of 'stole the show' from your handiwork :) Seriously what a wonderful set of photos to show your work in progress along with him :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. What large eyes you have, Noam my dear!

    This brings to mind many rainy days indoors when it took a little imagination to keep the kids entertained. Of course, I don't have your talent with yarn, but I could do wonders with a few cardboard boxes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh, how precious is he? Little Noam looks like he is enjoying Auntie's bright and happy picnic blanket! Wonderful photos :)
