Tadaaa...my first ever beanie. I can tell you I was as thrilled as anything. I'd been wanting to learn to crochet for absolutely ages, and finally I did...and I'm kicking myself for not trying so many years ago. It always looked terribly complicated. Anyhow, fast forward two years, to this time last year, and I was bristling with inspiration. Honestly, the Cape of Storms is breathtakingly beautiful in the Autumn and Winter...the sky, those colours, the ocean. I could wax lyrical forever!
This image of the rusty vintage automobile, with all those lovely colours and pale blues had all my cells skipping about with joy! I absolutely had to translate these colours into something tangible, and a blanket would just take tooooo long. So another Beanie flew off the hook! My grandson quickly claimed this one. He's nine...so not too old to think it's "not a cool colour". :-)
We hardly ever see Cosmos flowers down at the Cape of Storms, but growing up in the highlands these pretty blooms with their happy faces, put on a spectacular autumn display along the side of roads, and open fields. Of course a Beanie had to be made... :-)
And I think we can agree this one should be called 'Sky, Sea and Sand" ? :-) I just LOVE those colours!!
I would think it's almost impossible to run out of inspiration when it's all around us, all the time...if only we can step off our busy treadmill and take time to notice the incredible beauty of this planet we call Home. I hope you stop to smell, and crochet, the Roses? Have a wonderfully colour-filled week! xxxxxxxxxxxx
