As you like it! Or, Goodbye Winter!

‘With a hey, and a ho, and a hey-nonny-no,

These pretty country folks would lie
In springtime, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, Hey ding a ding, ding.
Sweet lovers love the spring.’ William Shakespeare.

Yes! Today is the last day of meteorological winter. TOMORROW IS SPRING!

In truth, most of our winter hasn’t been too bad. It has rained a lot latterly, but England is known as the Green and Pleasant land, and without rain that would be a misnomer. For some people, though, the rain has brought horrendous flooding. I can’t fully imagine what it must be like to go through that, and for some, to go through it more than once within a few weeks …

None of the wet stuff will be featured in the Spirit of Winter blanket.

December 2019, January and February 2020.

The last strip is still to be attached but this won’t be finished until today’s square is completed. Rain will, however, be featured in my 100 days project

This was begun on February 1, so all the above feature days this month, although not consecutive. The darker the red, the heavier the rain. None of theses squares are joined together as I’m still considering the final layout. Joining won’t take long, though, as ends are already a thing of the past. I’ve also noticed that the square at top left is a rogue and from a completely different project! So disregard that one …

My scraps of yarn have been accumulating and, frankly, annoying me. So, it’s time for a scrap buster. Here’s the first square.

Nothing to do with the weather … just remnants from a series of blankets made recently. More about this next time, and maybe a roundup tomorrow for #crochet6in366

Happy last day of winter, everyone!

    We had the first day of autumn today – and it was no cooler than it has been !!!!!! I said to Alan that I think someone needs to tell the weather that it’s now autumn and time to start cooling down. I reckon we have at least another 2-4 weeks of warm weather before we will see much change in the temps.
    Hopefully the rain is finished for a while and the ground has a chance to finish absorbing all the rain we have had recently – first it washed all the soil away because the ground was so dry and couldn’t absorb much water – then the water soaked in and everything became mushy because it doesn’t get a chance to dry. Even when it rains it’s hot.
    Have the best week !! xox

    1. A late reply, sorry. The weather seems to be the focus of conversations everywhere. I hope you get the respite you need. Somehow the land always bounces back in some form or another / but I don’t find it easy to adapt … must be getting old;)
