While out and about today I stopped in at one of the second hand stores. I had no intention of buying anything, I found a couple books (I only have 30 waiting to be read!!) and then I wondered over into the housewares section. I found yarn, 19 balls of it! 3 sets of knitting needles and 3 areo crochet hooks ( already in my mother’s hands).
The picture isn’t that great, but not a bad haul for 20 bucks. Now the challenge is where to put it, my totes are out of room already lol. I’m going to have to cram and stuff for now and go tote hunting another day and not get yarn at the same time (yeah right! lol).
So yesterday being way to hot even in an air conditioned house and really not wanting to work on the corner to corner blankets, I made a tunic. The pattern is called Drop Stitch Tunic, it was a nice easy quick project. I think it took me longer to sew it together then make the two panels.
This was one of the panels.
Here is the finished product. The best part of this project (I think) is that both panels are exactly the same and there is no need to shape it. 🙂
I have added a few more rows to the scrap blanket.
I have been trying to work on both blankets but a never ending headache has made it almost impossible to work. I am hoping it will go away, not being able to crochet is driving me a bit nuts.
Out of boredom and not feeling my current wips I started the Corner to Corner Afghan. I’m using up all my leftovers and boy it’s not very pretty!
My baby boy ( almost 5! 😥 ) loved the pattern and told me he wants a blue one. So last night with already going out shopping I grab some blue yarn ( woohoo yarn!!! lol) and started working on it after putting away the groceries.
Being one of my impatient imps he wants it NOW!!! I told him sorry bud you have to wait just like the big brother’s did, he was not happy hearing that lol.
I also bought some Sashay yarn.. I’m a sucker for punishment lol.
Finished it no more then ten minutes ago. I did a row of single crochet on each side just to make good and sure the ends stay in place.
I am on the last pattern set woohoo. I told my boy he would have it before school starts, I have just over a week to finish it. I am also going to add a boarder just to help tie in all the ends. Pics to come soon..
Finally finished the scarf I started. Love how the colors worked out.
