For more crafty goodness be sure to stop over at WIP Wednesday!
This week I worked a little bit on everything and started a few new projects. Always a fan of Attic24 projects I was interested in her "Lucy Bag" reading through the raverly forums one crocheter decided to make it as more of a basket instead of a bag and I thought that sounded like a perfect idea! I ended up using some Lily Sugar 'n Creme Cotton I already had so the colors aren't my best.
Here is the yarn I used:
Sunday I hit up the craft stores to take part in a few sales, I went to different locations than I usually do and fell in love with the texture of Red Heart's Moon and Stars. I didn't end up buying any that day because I had no idea what I could make with it and I'm trying not to buy yarn without a purpose. I found some great options, blankets, hats, socks and then I realized I was wearing a pair of slippers that feel not unlike the yarn I had just be lusting after and that's when I realized the yarn had the potential to be perfect for the slippers I made awhile back. So I went back the next day and got some colors!
Turns out I was right! Since the yarn is sort of fuzzy you really can't see your stitches when working with it but since I had done the pattern previously I made it through by sort of blindly stabbing into the yarn and they are so so so comfortable, much more comfortable than the yarn I used the first time around. So far I've only made 1 slipper.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before my Crochet Today is my favorite crochet magazine by far, it's bi-monthly and I knew the new issue should be arriving soon and it came yesterday! One of my local yarn stores also called yesterday evening to say the colors of Berroco Comfort DK I had ordered about 2 weeks ago had come in so guess where I went this morning!
I also got some more yarn for a scarf and hat pattern I had been searching for some yarn for. I had been hoping to pick up two worsted skeins to match some I already had for another scarf I underestimated how much yarn I would need for, but they didn't have the color, oh well! It's not like I don't have enough to work on now!
Now that I have all the yarn I wanted for my next blanket I've really begun thinking about what I want to make. Originally I was going to make another granny square blanket but decided it might be more fun to try something like this! But with black instead of white and make it into a blanket! What do you think?
