Good afternoon! I hope all is well your way. This is a picture of one of the smaller trees in our front yard. I love when they look like this.We've had some lovely weather the last 3 days..beautiful sunshine! It tricked me into thinking Spring was actually here for good. Today has been nothing but cold, wet, constant RAIN..sure did snap me back to reality :)
Yesterday the post man delivered my latest on-line purchase. I actually got them so cheap I should be saying this is what I stole. I ordered them from Annie's Attic..I think they are more expensive then Knitpicks but I found these at a bargain!
"50 Sensational Crochet Afghans and Throws"...Hard back 176 pages. Cost $5.95..isn't that amazing! How often can you buy any hardcover book for that price! The pictures in this book are brilliant and it actually has 2 different versions of a blanket I've been wanting to make for a while. I'm not even sure of it's real name..in this book it's referred to as Happy Cartwheels and Peaceful Harmony. I can't describe it, it reminds me of wheels..if that makes sense! Here, I found a picture of what I was trying to describe, much easier! lol
"Heirloom Afghans"..176 pages, 53 patterns and hard cover! What a bargain at $3.95. .This has a lot of the lacy Victorian style throws..which I honestly don't do too often BUT who's to say I can't start now..It also has a few patterns with cables...which has always scared me and I've stayed clear of them..but why be scared..I just need to try it and get it over with.
"1-2-3 Skein Crochet"...Soft cover 176 pages $5.95. This is suppose to be an excellent book for stash bashing which is what made me place the order to begin with. I told myself that with this book I can use up what yarn I have already have instead of the book making me want to buy more..
Well, that and because I just bought a ton of yarn from my cousin. She has been a stay at home mom for 11 years and has decided to return to work. She's doing away with all of it! Says she won't have time. Which, now that I think about it makes no sense. I've always worked, was never a stay at home mom and I've always crocheted..well, I guess I don't have 5 kids either. I was just thinking about the great bargain I got and not the why. I was too excited to think clearly!We're not talking a few skeins here..were talking her entire supply! What she has acquired in the last 10 years!! Yes!!!!..can you say awesome!!
I haven't picked this up yet, so next week when I'm whining and complaining about space ( like I think I just did a few posts ago) someone just needs to tell me to shut up! lol :) I'm wondering now if I should tell Jeremy before hand or just show up here with it. I think I'll just show up with it...that look will be priceless!!!
My pictures are terrible! I need to work on that. Take a class or something. I'm not sure if it's the lack of light or what. The camera I have is a pretty nice one so it has to be my picture taking ability, or lack there of..so sorry about that! Hope you have a great week! Take care xxx
