Hello Ladies. I knew that would get your attention, lol.
Isn't it just absolutely gorgeous? This is my latest yarn purchase. A total necessity. I just couldn't leave the shop without it.
It's so soft too. Er...not exactly sure what I'm going to do with it at the moment but it just had to come home with me, and we didn't travel far as we now have our own little yarn venue here in our little village, but more about that in a minute.
This is my latest venture, ZIGZAG! It's so easy and soooo utterly addictive. I've been very good though and I'm using up my left over Stylecraft yarns that I just love for crochet, especially Stylecraft Life which has 25% wool in it. It won't break the bank but you're still getting a nice quality yarn.
Luckily for me though, if I do need a little bit more yarn I can pop into the a fore mentioned yarn shop, Past and Presents where I enjoy a lovely relaxing couple of hours on a Friday evening at Jenny's Knit and Natter group.
Lots of nattering goes on, much tea drinking and cake eating takes place. (Cakes courtesy of the very talented Lindsay of Dales Cake Craft) These in particular had special gooey centres.
And the odd row of knitting here and a round of crochet there!
Just had to share these scrummy little balls of cotton yarn with you too, they look so pretty in the little basket I made for them from garden twine.
I hand wound these myself for all the ladies who attended my first ever crochet class.( I was taught how to do it by the very talented Anne at Ash Creativity) It was a bit nerve wracking but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and all went home with at least one little crochet flower.
I've been assured much practising has been going on so next time we will be attempting a granny square or two! Fingers crossed...er...actually lets hope they've all got past that problem now, lol.
Thank you for the Blighty Brooch love.
till next time.
love Fi x
