Aspiring to a LIttle Sunshine

Blog week
Today's topic is to blog about a pattern you aspire to due to skills you still need to acquire or the dedication it takes to undertake a large project.  My project is definitely (and rather frustratingly) more of an aspiration out dedication and rather than skill.  I've never been very good at committing to large projects. 

This is the Sunshine Day Baby Afghan by Alicia Paulson of one of my favorite blogs, Posie Gets Cosy.  I've been in love with it since the first moment she showed us a glimpse.

I love the soft crochet bubbles and the colors are so fantastic that I think I'd need to match them as closely as I possibly could as I just don't think it would look the same if it were done in another color scheme. 

When the pattern was posted on Ravelry in early February I fawned over it and, rather than adding it to my queue, I added it to my favorites.  It was pretty to look at but I didn't really have a reason to commit to making it.  Little did I know!  About three weeks later there I was holding a positive pregnancy test in my hands, calling out to Matt, "Hey baby, you wanna have a baby?"  

I guess it's about time to give up my instant gratification lifestyle because this blanket would be a wonderful little bit of sunshine for our little acorn's room!

  1. That is very nice! I love the colors!

  2. I agree with you- that pattern is amazing! The colors are too good not to copy.
    BTW- I think I fixed my comments. Let me know if it's working for you!
