A little over two months ago I set out to create a blanket--for myself. I haven't done that since the '90s!
Post-2000, my blankets have usually been for new or approaching babies. I made one for a cousin's birthday.
A few starts remain undone for one reason or another--like abandoned manuscripts tossed into a drawer.
Shortly before the new year arrived, I tied the last knot in the blanket I started in October. It's warm. It's cheery. And, it's the perfect size for sitting on the couch, kicking up my feet and fully covering me from pointed toe to tucked chin.
It's bitterly cold today. My thermometer reads 5 degrees.
Hats, gloves, coats: ON.
Heat: UP. A constant purr in the background.
I hope you have something cozy to snuggle with today.
One stitch at a time may seem slow, but Cozy Rosy is proof that--
even the long, cold days
eventually come to an end.
One stitch at a time.
One day at a time.
One -- soon equals five, then ten.
You'll have something to spread out and
be grateful for when it's just you,
your creation, and
old man Winter.
