My LYS was having a Gumball Sale yesterday and we just happened to be in Plano, so I stopped in to see what was what. You get a gumball from a giant gumball machine and each color represents a percentage that you will get off of your entire purchase that day. I drew a 35% gumball and was quite pleased with that. (It only goes up to 50%).
I got a big hank of Noro Taiyo Sock (459 yards) and two hanks of Smooshy with Cashmere Sock (450 yards each). I ended up saving a little over $30 bucks so I was happy. I'm not quite sure what I'll make with the Noro, but maybe another Boho purse or two. My purse is done...ta-dah coming tomorrow! The Smooshy I plan to use to make THIS SHAWL. I've been looking for the perfect yarn, and this jumped out at me yesterday. It's super soft and squishy...to die for.
My LYS, The Woolie Ewe
I've been working on a new bunting for my back porch. The old one is worn out and faded. It's been out there for at least two years, maybe three. I can't remember exactly. I picked this yarn and these colors because I have a lot of it in my stash. I just need to finish putting the picot edging on these and crochet them together onto a chain for hanging. It's been fun working on these the past couple of days here and there.
I got my hair chopped off yesterday evening!
Feels great. Love it.
