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.

Mustard Doily

Hello beautiful people. A tour through Blogdom shows that everyone is busy with their "first project for 2013". And that is really good news, because it means we are going to have a wonderful crafty year ahead.

I finished weaving in the ends on my Mustard Doily and here it is: Ta - Da

I have used Bliss Knitting cotton and a 2.00 mm crochet hook. I chose this pattern as I wanted a fast and small project. Well, it has turned out to be 17 inches in diameter....hardly small!!

This year I plan to try my hand at Tunisian crochet and hopefully I should ...before the year ends.

See you soon. Looking forward to some lovely projects from all of you.
Here is some inspiration for you... LOL.

Haha... I hope Hubby is not reading this.
Take care and happy crafting.

Love xxx
