With serial startitus!!!
I don't know what's going on with me, I mean, yes, I've been known to have a project or three on the go at one time, but this is taking things to a whole new level!!
So I went away for a week with my family and we took my mum with us to give her a rest ... bad combination!! We were delighted to find some real bargains and there was just no stopping us!!
Well of course, once you have that lovely yarn in your hands, how can you resist???
So here's a few pictures of my lovely yummy delights and a few also of what I've been doing with it as well.
2 balls of cotton for dish cloths, a 400g light brown aran that I want to do some wrist cuffs and things like that with, a chunky yarn, mix of grey, black and white to do some fingerless gloves for my eldest son and a really soft chunky blue yarn to use on my loom to see how it knitted up as a hat.
So here are the chunky fingerless gloves ... very cosy and warm.
The blue yarn on the loom.
Well at least I got that finished!!! lol
Here's the strange thing though. It appears a chunkier yarn than the first loom hat I made, but it isn't. I can tell by the stitches once I got it off. It's wonderfully soft though.
This yarn is absolutely beautiful. I fell in love with it and I don't generally pay much for yarn if I can help it but this was the exception.
Stylecraft Trendsetter chunky.
I couldn't resist buying it and I couldn't resist starting it either!!
Hopefully, if all goes well, this is a tee style jumper for me.
I couldn't leave these behind!! At 2 balls for £2 it would have just been a crime!!
And yes, I've started on these as well.
The red, green and brown are being turned into a set of apple coasters!! First one completed ...
I've got my eye on a few baby patterns for the pink and white as well but I'm trying to be strong and not go there yet!!
I started this as well. It's another tee style top for me, in a lovely teal yarn, although it's come out blue in the picture!! lol
Hot off the hook, a little thread coaster sized doily. Not blocked yet as you can see. It looks real sorry for itself there, poor thing!!
A few little accessories found their way home with me as well. Some stitch markers, some yarn needles, 2 bargain packs of buttons for decoration (flower centre etc) at only £1 per bag and a crochet hook. It's a clover soft touch. I've never used one of these before, I tend to use metal or aluminium, so this is going to be quite exciting to try.
I also got two little knitting books.
I feel quite shocked myself looking at all this!! I'm SO bad!!
The holiday itself was lovely, although my mum overdid it a bit and did have a quite bad angina attack. She rested the next day though and has been fine since I'm glad to say!!
Hope you are all well.
