I’m the sort of person who likes to always have busy hands.
For a few years I’ve been using up little bits and pieces of yarn to make a colorful afghan. (Originally the plan was just to use up old bits, but of course I ended up buying some more yarn too…)
I love having a project I can just pick up and work on, especially while I’ve been recovering from back issues this year. And I can easily bring a bag of yarn with me while I’m visiting friends, to keep my hands busy, and make a couple of squares.
The colors make me really happy!
I’ve been playing around with arranging the colors. I want the layout to be balanced without following a strict pattern.
Last night I decided to start with 3×3 blocks of color themes that feel right together. It feels a little less overwhelming than working with all the squares at once. Who knows, maybe I’ll end up taking them all apart… but it’s fun for now!
If you’d like see some of my other projects, they live on my Tumblr.
