Well we did not travel around this week but was still on holidays and I did still do lots of hooking, and more yarn shopping…
I bought this lovely silver sequin on sale with the idea to make a shawl for a wedding but it was a bit thicker then I thought and I ended up deciding to make a dress… watch this space, hopefully it will work into something worth writing about!
Meanwhile I joined a monthly square swap. I had almost joined another one which would’ve meant I had to make a lot more squares and mail off, but this one seems a bit more casual, so after finding out my partners wishes I made this as a tester. I plan on making a final one for her now that I have bought more yarn (note, this is the second yarn purchase mentioned in this post).
The pattern can be found here. I gave the tester to my daughter – after confirming it’s OK with my swap partner – so she could use it as a baby blanket.
I then also made a square for me to start of the blanket that will be amde from all the squares. I’m making it for my daughter who always asks for crochet things to be made for her.
I then made up the bracelet from the front of my Simply Crochet magazine I bought on holidays, and was instantly commissioned to make another…
I made another magic circle!!
Oops, I mean I made this soo cute bear hat for a cute bubba born only a few days ago!
The yarn was already in my yarn stash so no purchase needed 😉
And just for good measure I bought this, with no plan… I will make something for my daughter from it for next winter.
I’ve learnt I’m not alone in my yarn addiction, in fact I’ve joined a group who seem to be great in enabling each other in their yarn purchases…
Does anyone else out there suffer from this addiction??
