"Happy Thoughts", a new Freeform Piece

Inspired by a skein of yarn I bought from Shannon at SunriseLodgeFiber, this piece can either be a decorative baby blanket, a lapghan for someone disabled or a tapestry piece.

I must take a moment and say Shannon is a wonderful sister in Christ and I could almost feel the uplifting energy of this handspun yarn. She named the yarn "Mystery Machine" from the Scooby Doo cartoon. I admit, I've seen enough of that "groovy" cartoon as
a kid to see the colorway.
Working with this yarn gave me happy thoughts and ideas...yeah kinda like the way Bob Ross thinks when he's working on one of his paintings. Next to Prudence Mapstone, Bob Ross is another person that inspires me. I'm about a quarter of the way done with it so I'll post the finished photos here and on Ravelry.
These photos were taken in the late afternoon, thus the reason for the long shadows. The finished photos will be taken at midday when the lighting is best.
