Hello, how was your Wednesday ? Hopefully not too bad, and remember ,it's all down hill to the weekend now :0)
I've been feeling a little bit yuck today. So to cheer myself up I've been playing with yarn.
I have a rather large yarn stash these days. Mostly cheap and cheerful acrylic .I really think this stuff is great.
Yes, sometimes it can be a little scratchy , but once you get to know the nicer brands (like Hayfields Bonus, Patons Fab or Cygnet )it's generally great to work with, and reassuring to know it will stand up to repeated washing and won't attract moths.
The reasonable cost is a big factor too. In a household where there are so many demands on our finances ,it's great to have a hobby that costs so little.
Using some ice cream colours ,I made a few more circles for my blanket....
Of course I do occasionally buy yarn that ,in hindsight, is a bit tacky.The colours are a bit too "neon " when they are viewed in the daylight. They languish ,hidden at the back of my stash .
These two are prime examples....
Lime green, and neon orange, the colours that taste forgot !!
Still you never know if they may come in handy one day, and today turned out to be just such a day.I found this pattern via Ravelry. and made this........
A bit of fun for Halloween.
She is quite a pretty Witch , don't you think.........
And she was enjoyable to make, on a day that I wasn't feeling like doing much at all.
