Stash Saturday

If wishes were balls, then....

I meant balls of yarn of course, what were you thinking!?  ;)
If wishes were balls of yarn, then I would fill up my room with yarn. My birthday wish for loads of yarn has come partly true. But with crochet thread and not yarn.

I had ordered for some size 20 crochet thread by mail order and it has just arrived. Here is a look at some of the lovely shades.

Greens, Oranges and Purple

Reds and Mints

Blues, Pinks and Yellows

Ombre and Variegated
Since good quality crochet supplies are not available in Ahmedabad, this is my way out. It does mean that I have to stock quite of lot of yarn or thread, but the cost of going to the business district of the city to buy yarn costs me three times as much.

I can't wait to start working with this thread. But before that I will have to get new glasses as working with thread is somewhat tedious, especially after getting used to working with yarn.

I am planning on a few doilies with flowers or butterflies. And then some lovely bookmarks. 

So, what have you been up to? I hope you have some rocking plans for the weekend. This weekend we will be traveling and I may not have access to the internet. But I will find a way to keep in touch.

Have a lovely weekend. Take care. Cheerio.

International Crochet Day

Hello dear friends,
I hope you are having a relaxed Wednesday.

A big thank you to all of you who liked my tutorial and sent me your encouraging comments. And thanks for the birthday wishes too. 

Let us meet our new friends;
         Jee Q from Learning to Write (some lovely crochet projects here)
         Chiflu at  La mi cocinuca ( yummy baked goodies and crochet too)
         Girlie de los reyes  from Girlie's Crochet (lots of crochet patterns, tutorials and stitches)
  and Moush ( please send me link if you have a blog,dear).
Welcome aboard.

Today I don't have any finished projects to show. But the actual reason I am here is to tell you that today September 12th is International Crochet Day ! I just learned about this at Petals to Picots. So do pop over there to know more. 

Go ahead and celebrate - start a new project, buy a new book/yarn or teach someone to crochet.

I am working on my very first baby cardigan and bonnet with a lovely Watermelon color yarn. 
I have never crocheted anything that can be worn and I am praying it turns out okay.

This is a free pattern from Free You can find it in the widget in my right sidebar if you scroll through it.

Wish me luck for my first baby project.

See you later, crocheters. Ta-ta
