Yarn Joy

So today I was browsing through the local craft store flyer to find that all their yarn is on sale!  Yes pure joy!  So excited to say the least.  So off I went over the noon hour and bought just enough to start a new project.

I thought it would best if I had some sort of a plan of what I will make in the coming months before filling up my basket in the store.

Since the cooler temps have arrived, I will be making a cowl for my daughter.  She asked if I could make her one and had described it as longer and being able to double it up around her neck....well it just happened I had recently come upon this pattern Soft Stitch Cowl posted so kindly by Crochet in Color. 


Here is the colour I have chosen for the cowl
I will post my progress in the coming days..

Oh and I have decided to be part of  Tuesday's Tallies.  What better way to work on a large project than to do one piece one day at a time.  To be encouraged by others and see such wonderful projects being created. 

I think I will be trying my hand at doing hexagons in order to make an afghan.  Fingers crossed.

Thanks for dropping in..

PS just adding in the book I am currenlty reading...just started so too early for a review

  3. Welcome to the One a Day group. It is very motivating and inspiring. The pattern you picked is great and yarn too. Oh yarn...heaven! How could you resist when it is on sale...lol? I built up my stash after using a good deal of it. I used our VAT taxes going up from 19 to 21% as my excuse. :-)
