Rain, Rain, Go Away …or Not

The forecast for the next forever is calling for rain, rain, and even more rain.  Did I mention that it’s going to rain?  I have no problem with rain normally, but something tells me that by the end of the week I am going to be sick of it.  Rain makes the flowers grow and helps replenish the water supply.  Remind me of this when my head is throbbing from a weather headache.

The dandelions in the yard are doing extremely well with the rain that has fallen.  The leaves are competing with their supermarket cousins and the bun sisters are loving it!  Even the plantain leaves are bigger than normal which is great.

To celebrate (?) the rainy weather I want to highlight some rain-themed patterns I found on Ravelry this morning.  A few cute storm clouds with smiling faces should cheer everyone up.  Or perhaps crochet a pair of galoshes so your bunnies (okay, they are for babies) can keep their feet dry.

Storm Cloud Themed Patterns

Andrea Moberly has a Rain Cloud motif pattern that offers many creative possibilities.  Sew it onto a blanket, make it into a mobile, or just use it as a small table decoration.

The Stormy Cloud & Rain Drops Applique Set by Manda Proell is another way to add decoration to a piece.  Adding the smile will brighten your day further.

Devine Debris’ 8″ Tapestry Rain Cloud Afghan Square is part of a larger seasonal blanket that uses tapestry design.  Learning a new skill will help the time go by faster.

Kari Philpott’s Rain Cloud Bobble Chart offers another way to crochet the rain away.  Why not add a bit of color to the bobbles?  Creativity is a great way to chase the gloom away.

When all else fails and your need to stay grounded in reality, perhaps A Chance of Rain Crochet Dishcloth by Hannah Maier will turn that frown up-side-down.  Use it to clean up after making some yummy rainy weather stew.

Misc. Patterns Related to Rain

My Little Galoshes by Kiel Lemon are super cute!  Though they wouldn’t last long on Yuki’s cute feet, I want to make a pair.

If you want to add to the water level, you can crochet a few of the Rain Droplet in Red Galoshes by Chiwaluv Amigurumi Critters.  Make one for each day it rains and you will have more than enough to fill a reservoir.

Will you be trying any of these patterns during the next week?  I might give the galoshes and the rain droplet a try.  Or are you boycotting the rain altogether and doing a summer sun pattern?  Let me know in the comments below.

Have an excellent day!
