Well, how is it that almost three months have passed by so quickly? This summer caught me a bit off guard and really, everything slipped by so fast that I don’t even know what happened. I have a ton of emails and comments to get back to, and I promise I will be doing that this week, so please forgive me.
I’m also sorry that I wasn’t around when the Tropical Delight square was featured as the BAMCAL filler square for August. I’m so happy that so many of you visited me here and sent such kind messages. As for myself, I have a few months to catch up with the BAMCAL, and hopefully I’ll be getting around to doing that soon.
I don’t have much to show in the way of crochet that I did over the summer. I’ve been working on a few large projects that are not yet completed, but they will be soon. One square that I did complete though, was a beautiful square designed by Joyce Lewis, who let me test the square for her. This is called Off-Kilter Afghan Block by Joyce Lewis, and it’s a free pattern that you can find here on Ravelry:
My busy summer hasn’t ended now that fall has come around either. The school year has started up, and I’m thankful that I’m homeschooling, because we’re going to be doing that on the road for a little while. Yes, we’re packing up and going on a little bit of a road trip soon. I’ve not yet homeschooled from the road yet, but I think we’ll be all right; we’ll just be changing our format from a little less structured curriculum to a little more physical experiences. There’s so much history and learning involved in travel that I think we’ll be able to make our lessons around that.
And don’t think that I won’t be crocheting along the way! In fact, the biggest bag that I have packed right now is filled with yarn, printed patterns, and everything I am hoping to finish these next few weeks. And without all the distractions around home, I am hoping to have a lot of projects done! It doesn’t hurt either, that I’m visiting my good friend who is also an avid crocheter. I have a feeling we’ll be spending some good time catching up over yarn and wine.
In the meantime, I want to thank you for checking back in. I’ll be updating my blog from the road, and I’ll also be uploading photos of my trip on Instagram, so if you’re not following me, you may want to vicariously travel and crochet along
