Yarn Along

I decided I'd better make a hat for Afon after all Roan's bonnets.  He likes to "make socks" with my yarn and get it tangled.  When I crocheted baby booties, he tries to stuff his own ginormous feet in them, which is humorous and half guilt-inducing, because the poor baby obviously thinks (or wants, if he doesn't think) my labors to be for him.

I let him pick out the yarn.  "This one or this one?"  They were two same colors from Roan's bonnets.

He echoed, "This one," and sort of gestured toward the mustard color (which, by the way, is not a very nice name for such a luscious hue).

It's way too big, so I've got to pull out the rounds and redo them.

I'm still in The Queen of Air and Darkness from The Once and Future King.  There's more time to throw myself into reading and crochet since Afon started school on Monday, but a heavy, sniffly cold keeps me subdued.

  1. It is a lovely colour! I always think 'mustard' doesn't sound very nice to describe the colour. :)

    1. It just sort of surprised me when I looked at the label! I wasn't expecting "mustard."

  2. What a beautiful blog you have!
    I joined in Yarn Along with week for the second time, I'm brimming with inspiration and books to read now. It's a lovely little community.
    'Mustard' doesn't do it justice at all does it?
    Hope you feel better soon.

  7. What a beautiful color, I agree, "mustard" just sounds so drab and sour, not warm and rich like your yarn! I hope you feel better soon!
