Google+ What I Made Today: A Colorful Metaphor

A Colorful Metaphor


Today I finished a physical metaphor. You see, I feel a need to add color to my life. So I purchased cotton yarn in a riot of colors knowing that I would crochet an afghan.


Crochet is a form of meditation for me, especially this continuous granny square pattern. There's no counting, though I find myself repeating, "maiden, mother, crone" throughout the creation.


So now I have a new afghan, in a riot of crazy colors, to wrap myself in on these cold winter days as I continue my plans and efforts to add color to all aspects of my life.

That's what I made today.

Peace.

That is a STUNNING afgan! I'm completely in love with the colors and design :)

And I love the fact that it's a metaphor for your life-What a great idea!

As you know I love to crochet, but my Mother would only make Granny squares...she made a number of these afghans and had one started when she became ill. After she passed on I finished it and it stays as a reminder of her. This one is lovely.

I love it! I can only do a simple crochet, but am anxious to learn to do more, I find it very relaxing too. Great job!
