The Weather Outside is Frightfully Cold ...

The temps have taken a drastic drop.  A night to be tucked in and under a crocheted afghan ... mmmmm, cozy. 

My favorite chair, surrounded by several in progress works of yarn and hook, is calling me to come and sit.  With peppermint moca coffee, I think I will also grab the granny throw and settle in.  Its lapghan size now.  I think it will get one more color sequence (ten rows) and then edged.  Crocheting afghans during the winter months is so comforting.  Its like being covered in a blessing.


We begin the final week of advent. 
How quickly now Christmas is approaching.

Let the Heavens drop down gentle showers,
let the clouds rain down the Just One,
...and let the earth bring forth a savior.


  1. I love how you put that, "like being covered in a blessing." Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a cold afternoon or evening. Hope you are enjoying your Sunday Glor. :-)

  2. Faith crochet by the sea...

    sounds simply cozy and wonderfully toasty thing to do this time of year all wrapped up in nice warm homemades....ahhhhh

  3. What a beautiful post -- especially your very last paragraph.

  4. I, too, love the idea of being covered in a blessing... I mean, in addition to the blessings that are constantly covering me. :)

  5. I am so glad that I am not the only one who seems to have afghan making fever! Hope you get lots of time to snuggle up under a throw with your hook today. :)

    Blessings to you and yours always
