Crochetkari: New Yarn for New Year

New Yarn for New Year

Hi friends, a New Year means new beginnings and therefore it also means new yarn, of course. Never mind that balls of yarn and thread are now tumbling out of every shelf, basket, box and table in my room. They are not "new" you see.

So I went ahead and got a few balls of new yarn for myself. Here it is:


Don't they look just yummy?

The yarn is 100% acrylic, nothing fancy and certainly not Stylecraft. I cannot tell you how many times I have drooled over pictures of the Stylecraft yarn. But it is just too expensive...boohoo.
So I am satisfied with my find. And anyway finding good yarn here is more on the lines of "Beggars can't be choosers"  ...:)

I have not yet decided what I am going to make with the yarn. This year I have challenged myself to make at least one wearable item for myself. All my attempts so far have resulted in items too small or shapeless. (I know, serves me right for letting myself go and reaching an XL size.) If I am successful then I might make something for hubby and sonny too.

Next time I am going to share another new item with you. But I am too excited to keep it a secret. It a new bookcase my husband has ordered for me. My books just like my yarn are now spilling all over the place. It is a good thing I have got a separate room for my craft or else we would have had to sleep on top of the books  :).

Hope the new year has meant a lot of new beginnings for you too. What projects have you planned for 2013, do let us know.

Until next time, take care and happy crafting.



  1. Very yummy yarn.. Which one is this n what size hook should you use? Totally agree with u on the style craft yarn.. Very good but converted into Indian rs turns out expensive.. But all the folks in UK n elsewhere seem torching its reasonable.. Well diff stds for everyone I guess.. A blanket or a shawl would look great in these colors..

  2. Lovely colors! Even vardhman yarns have a good range. I too got a wooden chest of drawers today to keep my yarns. Will post the pictures once I get sometime to patiently arrange it :)

  3. Gorgeous yarn! My kind of colours! Can't wait to see what you decide to make. Maggie xx

  4. One can never have too much yarn! Though I am really, really trying not to buy more -- just to make things with what I have. But I know at some point I will break down and go buy something new to use. It just makes crafting so much more fun when you indulge yourself every once in a while. :) Best wishes, Tammy

  5. Ohhhh, the lovely colors! Isn't yarn so wonderful! My books and yarn are much like yours--overflowing!! Can't wait to see your creations!

  6.'s time to be creative !
    Have fun with those yarns !

  7. Beautiful colors! Can't wait to see what they become :)

  8. i must say that the yarn seems to be great. it seems to be rather thin. surely, you have to think about yourself, make some nice cardigan or a shrug :)
    i checked out with that knitting happiness, and they said they don't produce cotton yarn. heh...will be searching more in Ludhiana.
    have a great day!hugs,
