About a week ago, I came home happily clutching my bag full of yarn from my last trip to... wherever it was, there was a deal I just couldn't pass it up....I realized that I actually had no where put it. Yarn Mountain appeared to be above capacity! What a mess! I did not take a before picture, it was just too scary to commemorate with a photograph. I did spend around and hour and a half cutting off WIP's, balling yarn and generally organizing. Yarn Mountain is now all neat-ish and not quite embarrassing (aside from the messy bookshelf beside it!)
Took a walk through the city with the family and found a construction site that had crochet flowers lining the surrounding fence. Yay! Yarn Bombing! Love it.
Crochet Spot. Perfect! I love the idea of making small projects throughout the summer and storing them up, I have a lot of extended family out of state and I would love to be able to send Xmas gifts to them. So, I have been crocheting like crazy!
Two top secret small projects off on an adventure, elusive too, they haven't even been photographed! I got the new Ana Paula Rimoli book Amigurumi Toy Box and have completed two projects from it, my favorite, for my little buddy way up North, who has named him Mr. Fock:
And a teeny cake for Shorty's BFF's birthday:
Sunday I sat on my mom's patio with a big skein of sorta ugly cotton yarn and made her a pair of slippers.
I'm going to work my way through Yarn Mountain and make something, even if its a coaster, every single day. By the time I make that pile of yarn smaller I hope to be able to feel justified in buying that higher end yarn, for now, I've got a lot of cotton and acrylic to work with. I see a lot of Amigurumi and potholders in my future....
