Hey all! Went to the store this morning and found this new magazine and I am recommending You go out and find it and add to your stash!! Womans Day Quick and Easy Knitting and Crocheting. Fabulous!! They have equal time on knit and crochet projects. Sweaters, scarvesand hats, afghans, kid, teens, adults -- -- it is great, trust me and for $4.50, you can't go wrong. Finish reading this entry, and then go, go, go.....
The piece of crochet work you see in the photo, which turned out to totally not resemble the original, is the popcorn pillow in Blue Mist that I am working on. Yeah! Mouse! she is also working in the same yarn on her own project :) In the photo, it looks like shells, but trust me- - it's a cluster stitch.
I went through my stash of YARN yesterday, probably a mistake, but I did it anyway; I was amazed at how much homespun I have in various colors. I'm a color freak! anyway, I needed to do something with it, sooooooo I started the granny poncho on the Lionbrand website. I'm about half way finished with it. Very satisfied with how it is coming along. I believe it will be warm and hip to wear. That sounded completely non-hip to say, but there it is. Photo forth coming.
We are meeting our oldest sons girlfried this weekend. We're taking her to Nashville with us to go shopping. Probably dinner too since it's like an hour away. Ah.....young love. His two other brothers will be in the truck, also, there will be very little time for cutesy first love stuff. Man, hope we don't put the scare into her- - we can be a lot to take on stable land, but a car trip, now that can be something else. Light candles if you have 'em.
Go out and be creative today and say something nice to a stranger..... now, grab your car keys and get to the store for that magazine.
