Stash Increase

Took a trip to Columbia yesterday to True Blue Fiber Friends. With a Mother’s Day Gift Certificate that daughter Gloria gave me. And it was burning a whole in my pocket.

Yep, I’ve added to my Yarn Stash. It’s Fiesta yarn 100% Merino Wool.The blues to violets is named Australia, the browns to golds is Sedona and the pinks to golds is Tequila Sunrise.

Trio of Fiesta Yarn 002

Brought home enough of each to make a pair of sox and enough of the Sedona and Tequila Sunrise for a lovely scarf to match the sox.

Thanks, Glor

Here’s the little tabletopper I made over the weekend.  It’ll set atop the table at my elbow where I sit and do my handwork in the living room.

Lucy-Style Crocheted Bag

Here it is ! ! ! !
It's a Lucy-Style Crocheted Bag ! ! ! ! !
It's been a very long time since I picked up a crochet hook and made anything. Have been too busy knitting one pair of sox after another.
It's been a very long time since I picked up a crochet hook and made anything.
I've been having so much fun knitting sox - one pair right after another.
However, after one look at Lucy's blog - ATTIC24
I could not resist the temptation. Had to go shopping for yarn.
So off I went. Came home with a dozen or so skeins of joyful-colored yarn.
My new stash has already made it's debut on an earlier post.
I dug out my hooks and went online to Lucy's Crocheted Bag tutorial.
In no time at all I had this wonderful Crocheted Bag.
Don't you love it??
Lucy even has instructions for those cute flowers and leaves.
