Good morning ladies. I finished up the baby cocoon last night. This one is a little larger than the ones I usually crochet. It measures 11 1/2" across x 14 1/2" top to bottom. I used 2 skeins of the Vanna's Tapestry yarn I bought at AC Moore a little bit ago. The color is called 'Peru'.
I also re-crocheted a border onto one of the doilies I have hanging on my craft room shelf. I took off the pink border and removed 2 buttons, then crocheted on a yellow border and replaced the 2 buttons with a yellow one and a pink one. This is the doily before:
The 1st person who can tell me where those two lines come from, will win two (2) skeins of the Vanna's Tapestry yarn in the 'Peru' colorway.
(the picture of the yarn is in the post below)
Ok - Melanie guessed it. It's from 'The African Queen". Congrats Melanie!! email me your address at email@example.com and I'll get the yarn to you as soon as I can. Vince and I watched that movie last night. It was pretty good. :)
I finished up this 'asymmetrical round ripple' yesterday, and to be honest with you - I don't like it very much. I should of put stripes in it - stripes would of shown the pattern a lot better. My next one will have stripes for sure.
I went to AC Moore Wednesday and this is what I got. A new pair of reader glasses that are just so cute. The sides are pink and they have rhinestones on the front. A large jar candle - the scent is 'pumpkin spice' - that only cost $3.33! Definitely a bargain on that. I also bought a pack of safety pins for the 'guardian grandmas' - I use them to attach the cards to the donations. And last but not least - 4 skeins of Vanna White Tapestry yarn in the colorway 'Peru'. This will be the first time that I will be crocheting with this yarn. It feels soft and squishy, so I think I will like it.
I had bought this yarn from AC Moore a couple of weeks ago. As you can see it's in a mill-ends bag so I don't know what brand of yarn this is. It feels like acrylic and it is a boucle. I usually don't like working with boucle because it's tricky to see the stitches, but I've been wanting to crochet a poncho for myself using the granny stitch and I figured it will be ok since I will be crocheting in the ch-1 spaces. So far, so good.
That's it for now, so I will see ya'll next time. Have a great day!! :)
