More Yarn

I have had one of the most stressful weeks of my life, I cant talk about it until the matter has been resolved . I am so glad that I have crochet as my best friend as it is the only thing that makes me stop thinking about it. I love to crochet and I need to crochet everyday or else I get a little moody.It makes me very happy to sit with a hook and a ball of yarn and a few hours later I will have a gorgeous fabric. As crafters are very lucky people.I look at friends who just watch telly I want to shout out 'don't just sit there, make something.' My hands can not be idle.

On a brighter note I have had two more patterns accepted and will be in upcoming Inside Crochet mag. All very exciting.I still can't quite believe I have had two patterns published.

I have once again been seduced by my lover , his name is yarn. He whispers sweet nothings in my ear, knowing I am weak . These latest balls are from Knitting goddess.

The grey slate colour is 100% cashmere it is do soft. The yellow is is super wash merino 4ply.Last but not least mini skeins. Aren't they lovely?

I'm off to play with new yarn.


  1. Sorry to hear about the stressful side of life. I agree about crocheting -- I even carry it in the car with me, and when we travel. I love that it is easily portable and I can work on it anywhere. I always wonder what people without a hobby do with their time? Imagine how dull their days must be doing nothing at all. Congrats on being published. Sending good wishes your way! Tammy

  2. I am very fickle and shared my love among many lovers.These days is origami, crochet is one of them too, as you know. I hope the stress soon dissapears from your live.Congratulations on being published.

  3. Sometimes life is just too complicated!
    My current project is to keep my mind and hands active, so I'm using leftover odds and ends but I'm itching to get out there and buy something new. Your new yarns look lovely!
    There's nothing better than a cuppa, a chocolate biscuit, feet up and needles clicking to bring my stress levels down!
    Good luck!
