Big update for you guys this week. Lots of craft related stuff I wanted to show off today. I’ve been snapping pictures like mad the past 15 minutes so I can show it all off to you.
First, is a book I picked up at Walmart a few weeks ago. Amigurumi is something that has fascinated me for a while now, and I already have the supplies for a HUGE project I will tackle eventually, but, I also wanted some practice with some scrap yarn, and this seemed perfect for that.
Next is the second scarf from the first Hook and Needle club kit I received. I haven’t started it yet, but will probably pick a weekend and just whip it together.
In the mail today, I got the next kit. “Learn a stitch dishcloths”. I’m excited about this one. I’ve made some hand towels already from cotton yarn before, and want to slowly replace store bought towels and things with my handmade ones, so this will get me moving in the right direction.
I also picked up some magazines this weekend. Love of Crochet, Spring 2014; Crochet Today February/March 2014; and Crochet World “Fun with color in thread” Spring 2014.
Loads of things I'm excited for in these, but these three are probably the top:
Now, my favorite secret crochet tool, I got this years ago, and now that I am wanting to learn lace and tatting, there is a similar set with the smaller steel hooks. Two handles, multiple tips and even a loom knitting tool all in one handy zippered case.
Last but not least, the moment you have all been waiting for… The progress on my cross stitch. I have found a way to made it more portable, but also, since it was a cold and wet weekend here I had a lot of time I could sit and stitch. I’m really pleased with the progress this week, I hope you enjoy looking and thanks for putting up with such a long winded post! Smile everyone!
