Look how pretty they are... almost like a rainbow:) I got 3-4 balls of each. How much yarn do you need to make a blanket? I am planning on making 2 out of this yarn, but they are for my kids so I hope I have enough. Also I have never worked with this yarn before so I hope it's nice and durable.
But that is not the end of my yarn shopping... I have stopped by VV, and guess what? Someone must have de-stashed, because they had a ton to offer. Well they no longer do but they did :) Here is what left their stash and made it into mine
And I found these and just had to have them. There is this purse pattern I saw.... it will need handles, and the little heads... Look how precious they are. I can see some puppets in our future. I'm sure my little princess would love them.
And while I'm on the topic of things other than crochet.... I also got some canvasses (buy 1 get one for 1cent, and additional 20% off) and started on a project I saw on Pinrest. I just adored this sign, but I don't think I would have enough patience to make it from wood like she did. Instead I ended up with a 24x48in canvas for $20, and am painting it on. I have put the first layer on and now have to wait for that to dry to continue... here's what I have so far....
And I also started working with the first yarn in the picture (that turned out being a horrible yarn)... It looked interesting in the bag, nice color and texture... but it's horrible. Maybe I should have read the tag (100% olefin fibre). Let's just say it's not the softest/nicest thing I've ever touched and I just cannot imagine doing anything wearable with it... Sooo I decided to make a doormat/rug for my entryway. Here's how it looks so far. I started with a chain and SC on the first row, HDC second row, DC third row, and alternating HDC and DC for the following rows. I am thinking about doing Popcorn Stitch around as a border. I'll post pics once it's done.
