Tuesday Favorites #7: Warm & Cozy

Hi :)

Let me give you some background on how I'm feeling today... Yesterday it rained... a lot... and I had to walk in it to my interview with another department on campus... My little flats were soaked through and it was COLD.  Now, it's been pretty warm and summery lately, but after yesterday's rain storm, the temperatures have dipped back down.

All that being said... I just want to go back home and snuggle up in a blanket and sleep.

So, since that's not happening until I get off work, I decided to browse Etsy for pretty, snuggle-y, yarn-y, blanket-y goodness ^.^  Enjoy!

Well... It seems that I have a pattern preference and a color preference :) I do love a simple chevron afghan, but I just can't get myself to commit to all that single crocheting!  I did see a granny chevron stitch once upon a time, so maybe that will be my next blanket project.

I've always been drawn to warm earthy colors (as you can see). They just make me feel happier. I really want a blanket like the last one pictured. I like the 'vintage' feel of the color scheme. Very "That 70's Show" I think.

Maybe I should do a granny chevron blanket in those colors... That could work ^.^

It looks like I have my next big crochet project brewing. I can feel myself getting excited... I'm such a yarn nerd >.< lol

[PS. since starting this post, the weather has changed again... It now feels like 87 degrees outside... ugh. These temp changes are going to make me crazy!]
