About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

stitch at a time taken patiently.

Yarn Love

Normally, I'm a thready kind of girl, and lord knows I have plenty of colors to choose from, but lately I suppose it is because of the somewhat colder ( ahem ) well ok, down right frigid weather....I've been yarning it up.
I mentioned the other day about the bag I wanted to make, I got pretty far on it, and was using stash, which wasn't as much as I thought it was and the colors were just not doing it for me. 
We've had that conversation here havn't we about the what makes the pattern work for us sometimes, and not others.  This was the case with this was my colors....
Cabin fever had set in and today it was 20 degrees, so off we went my youngest and I to "W". I needed a few things and he wanted to look at Hot Wheels so I combined the trip into one. On the way there I thought ooh..they have yarn, so of course that makes any trip more fabulous when there is yarn. They don't have a lot sadly, but I found some pretty colors for the bag...and one in particular I just fell for. They had only one skein. I've not seen this color anywhere else....
at the local craft stores....
It Red Heart ......with Love...and the color is .....wait for it....Boysenberry....what a stunner.
See it there next to the blue?  I have never seen " With Love" brand from Red Heart before....
this would make a pretty hooded cape....!
