Packing crochet for a vacay


Last night I finished the granddaughters mermaids amigurumi. Big smile ūüôā I wanted to get it done so I can drag it up to Michigan with me. I am going to visit my sister and hope to focus on making like 200 pixels for the hello kitty blanket. I was thinking if I only packed black and white yarn it would force me to finish. Oh okay, who are we kidding! I will go to Meijer and find some yarn I can’t live with out. One can only hope.

Knowing this will happen, I am taking my three work horse hooks: G, H, and I. My scissors, stitch markers and needle. Look out world, here I come!


June Yarn Haul


I have been thinking for awhile that I would go on a mini yarn troll. I still had a $15 credit to Michael’s and as long as I was up that way I would hit a few of my favorite yarn spots.Hobby Lobby

First I went to Big Lots to see what they had. Unfortunately, they have discontinued their craft department. Bummer! So next I went to an independent yarn store, and they were closed! Undetered, I headed for Hobby Lobby. At least I know for sure they had yarn. Yay!

I got a I love this cotton in natural, the elusive L hook, bamboo yarn which is so squishy and pretty (marked down! ), Vanna’s choice in Oceana, and a I love this yarn in Mod Blue Multi. Total $13.35. Not bad.

In the same shopping centre is Hancock Fabrics. Nothing good on sale, so I left.
