|The beginning of a cover for my BlackBerry|
After I finished this workshop, Mermaid started hers. She had been walking around with Hubby, and she saw that it was possible to make 'whish hearts', something she really wanted to give a try:
After the workshopping and lunch, it was time for some hardcore shopping. Well, semi-hardcore... As I had hubby with me, there was no chance of doing what I usually do: skulk around interesting stores, approach it from different angles, think about it for half an hour, go back, fondle, smell, walk away, walk back... Hubby got a bit nervous after ten minutes, so I gave in to only two urges: buy Zpaghetti (well... Ztringz, as they had the perfect turquoise colour I wanted), and sock yarn, dyed by Dutch Wool Diva. I hadn't tried her wares yet, so I just had to buy a skein!
|Yarn and hooks|
|The start of a cushion cover... (pardon the colours... lamp light...)|
In the meantime, I have filled three flat boxes with yarn and fabric, which are stowed in the corner to the right, and the cabinet underneath that Buddha is also filled with yarn ;) But this is a great space for sewing, and for doing silly things like cakeing yarn...
|Yes, I weigh the yarn, to get two perfect cakes, to be able to knit two socks at the same time...|
And now we're counting the days until the Breidag. I will be following a brioche workshop given by Nancy Marchant (how WOW! is that?) and will be visiting it without Hubby. Traders, lock up your yarns!!!
