this and that…

Hello ladies… how was your weekend?
Well.. family in law left and I admit it.. I have a couple of Princess and Princesses sitting here Smile which I really want to colour in and I just can not find the time for it.

Hubby used on the weekend “My” lol new and speedy computer to work on our bathroom renovation so I use the time to do some crochet and “research” for some new patterns. geee… Saturday I was up til 1:30 totally lost in cyberspace and yarn. Must of my stuff is posted over on Etsy. Just thought I share a a few photos on my blog.

I love this new cotton yarn I found at my local store… very bright and vibrant colours. I wished I could find some yarn a little thinner.

Covered a measuring tape and added a big red flower/poppy – I really like it and plan on making some more.

So earlier this week I ordered online some yarn… of course that stuff takes a long time to show up at my house – on Saturday I took the car to the car wash and the yarn shop is juuuust around the corner… so I hit it and left with some more stuff
love love Malabrigo yarn seigh… it is just sooo pretty. This one is Sock yarn very thin, compared to the worsted kind I used though the winter to make my scarfs with. I always wanted to make a triangular scarf. I started one and I am stuck with the bind off row. Can you believe it? it is now in my drawer waiting for some one to help me.

I would love to see the fingerless mittens and the pattern. Maybe I can get my mom to make me some. I think that I would actually wear them. And some leg warmers too- always so cold! :) Love the colors.
