Focus on the end bits (WordPress Photo Challenge)

20170403_135231

Snipping the end bits from a yarn project is the longest part of a project. You can see the finish line but you’re oh-so-far from it.

My Rainbow /Sherbert Blanket was one of my favourites, for many reasons, but mostly for the bright colours of the yarn. Even the bits that were snipped off and left in a pile were pretty.

When I placed a glass cup coaster on top of one pile it caught my imagination. I do like how it’s out-of-focus, kind of dreamy, I can imagine what they yarn can turn into.

That’s my favourite thing about yarn…. the possibilities. A few balls of yarn and a spark of imagination and you could create anything!

 

Yarn and Coffee – May

May is my busy month… actually let me say that more correctly… May is my son’s busiest sports month. I’m the owner/operator of Mom’s Taxi, therefore, May is my busy month.

20170504_165737Some years I get a fair amount of crocheting done since I do a fair bit of driving to fields then waiting but with all the rain this month it was too wet to sit and crochet outside. Some days I waited in my van and reread Harry Potter books.

I had planned to finish up some ‘in progress’ projects but…. I guess that June will be the catch-up month. I’ll have to promise myself not to start anything new. Well.. maybe the shadow box project for my son’s awards. THEN I’ll finish my wrap and the C2C shawlette.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you get something accomplished this month? Do you have yarn plans for June? I’d love to see!

Wooly Wednesday ~ Just love this orange

This yarn was donated to me. I don’t know what brand it is but like the other yarns from Wooly Wednesday…it’s in my stash.

It was going to be thrown out because the label had been lost. (GASP! Throw out yarn?! shudder) It’s lovely and soft. I’ve made a few scarves and headbands out of it.

Hope your day includes some yarn art!

Yarn and Coffee: March… One more ball

If we were having coffee I’d be telling you of my trips to the yarn aisle.

Would you like something to nibble with your coffee (or tea) as we chat?

Last month I was consumed with my son’s blanket (the C2C Jack Skellington) I expected to have to purchase more yarn as I went along since I was just following an idea vs a pattern.

In March both my projects took more yarn than the patterns called for. I made what I call the Sherbert and Cream blanket. I followed a pattern but the different yarn/ hook turned a 70cm blanket into a 120 cm long blanket!

The shawl I’m not quite done yet is a similar story. My problem there was I bought the last two balls from the store. When I went back there were Clearance stickers ūüė¶ So off to the internet.

yarn order

Now I not so patiently wait. I decided I could make a prettier shawl than I could find in the store for an event that I’m attending in a few weeks. Thankfully I was only two rows and the edging short. I’m worried that I’ll be up late the night before furiously crocheting!

I’m using Vanna’s Glamour Yarn (Sapphire) It’s very difficult to take a ¬†photo of!! None of the shots that I took of the balls of yarn worked. I don’t think I’ll be adding this yarn to the weekly¬†Wooly Wednesdays photos. In various light,¬†it appears to be such different¬†shades of blue. The shimmer in this yarn is perfect but oh so hard to do justice when I take a photo.

How was your month? What projects did you finish? Or perhaps you started a few?
