The ponytail hat crocheted for my cousin's little girl's birthday party next thursday is now finished, the ends are all weaved in and invisible. This was the first time I have used boucle yarn and it was kinda difficult but now that it's done, I love it! It is so warm and thick and forgiving. It looks so cute!! I think i want one for myself in this TLC Amore' i've had lying around here. Oh no, another project..................
Doesn't she look adorable in it? I actually had to beg to take a picture cause she's sooooo shy.
It is sooooo beautiful!! It is a cone of 5400 yds. laceweight loopy rayon yarn in a fruity summery colorway. I want to make a shawl from it for a dear friend for her birthday next July. I have a feeling that I better get started on it right after the Christmas stuff is done, or I might not finish it in time. I've never done lace so this will be an adventure!!
Hmm...after playing with it, I think it will be done in the Jessica Simpson shawl pattern but it needs another yarn carried along with it and I'm not sure what kind yet. But here's the pic.
Right now I've got a ton of projects i'm trying my best to keep up with.. I've got to finish the scarf i'm knitting for my mom for christmas and I'm hoping to have it done tonite except for the fringe which I want to bead (haven't bought them yet). Then I've started a scarf for my oldest daughter, two ponchos for myself: one crocheted and one knitted, then there's a granny square newsboy cap and vest for the same little girl, a crocheted sweater for my son and a crocheted ponytail hat for a birthday party next week. That's just the stuff I have started, that doesn't count all the projects i have lined up or have purchased yarn for. But........right now i need to go write my grocery list and do my shopping so I have food to fuel this "Lean, Mean, Yarn Machine".
I hit paydirt this week shopping for yarn. First, on ebay i bought a big cone of a pretty blue wool and 3 partial cones of bright lime green wool, some gorgeous turquoise rayon yarn, some varigated yarn i fell in love with and I don't even know what the fiber content is!!! LOL Also a hand spindle and some beautiful green roving. THEN, onto Hobby Lobby where I bought a skein of LionBrand polar fleece, size 10 circs, a skein of camo sock yarn, and a new knitting bag. THEN, to my lys where I found the Debbie Bliss on sale 50% OFF!!!! Jumping up and down here!! I bought 3 balls of the merino chunky in a pretty teal shade, 3 balls of the merino dk in a dusty plum, and 4 balls of the merino dk in a soft navy. I'm determined to make me a booga bag from this wool. I have enough to make one for myself and for my mil for christmas. Then today i was at another Hobby Lobby just killing time while waiting on hubby, and saw the sidewalk sale. I am a sucker for sidewalk sales. I got 10 skeins of LionBrand Cotton Ease in a soft pistachio for a baby blanket. It might be a while till I can get a pic up but i will try this weekend. Hubby says i can't buy any more yarn till I spend the same amount of $$ on hunting stuff for him. I said, "That's a deal!" He could have asked for much more, i figured.
I'm switching from typepad to blogspot, we'll see if I can handle it better here. I really want this to be awesome!!! more coming later tonite!!
