Hello and welcome to my new follower Preeti at Createwittyunleashed
thank you for visiting my blog, I look forward to hearing from you again :-)
I have some treasure to show you:
Emmmm .....no not this type........... but
nope nor this........ but
thisssssss ............ yarn treasure
I had popped out for a little spending spree to get myself a couple of new tops for work and a few other bits and bobs but coincidentally I had to go by Marie Carmen's shop ....do you remember her shop I posted about it here.
Now then as it is I remembered, I did have to pop into Marie's shop to have a look at the yarn and see if she had anything suitable for the baby blanket my sister has asked me to make for her new grandchild.
I made a cot cover for her other daughter, my niece, when she was born 28 years ago, which my niece is keeping for her own child but my sister wants another one now for the first grandchild. I'm very pleased though that the cot cover I made 29 years ago is still in good condition. Incidentally I made that cot cover with my Canarian square which I posted about here.
Isn't it wonderful how crochet just last and lasts.....I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that a piece of crochet was found in an Egyptian tomb....if so that's proof of everlasting craft!!!!
Well lets get back to the plot jack!!!!
as I was saying I had to just pop in to look at some yarn...soft yarn for babies, well fortunately Marie Carmen had just received a new batch of yarn. It was a kaleidoscope colour bomb that hit me as I opened the door (remember she does have a little shop) and it was so very difficult to choose which ones to buy. My sister had chosen white for the cot blanket but I wasn't really keen on just plain white so I picked up a couple of Jacquard Bravo Baby in Green,Grey and White as well hoping I would be allowed to add some colour. At the same time I choose a variety of other colours for ....... what were they for???? ...actually no idea.... but.... I know I needed those colours.
Sr P asked me later on at home what tops had I bought and I told a LIE.....a whopping great FIB!.... that they didn't have my size and I had to go back next week. Why did I do that.....guilty conscience I'm sure. I'm becoming a YARN addict now too.
Do you know how I feel looking at my wonderful stash of yarn now that I've added what I've just bought to it as well?
I feel GOOD! VERY GOOD!
Enjoy your Sunday!
PS: Change of plans my sister has sent me a pattern and the cot blanket is green. I'll have to go back to Marie Carmen's shop and change all the white I've bought for green.....how tiresome!!!
Better pop a little bit more cash into my purse in case ............. :-)
