Okay... I give in!

I didn't want to make a poncho... but it looks so warm and it leaves your arms free of sleeves. So, with the Red Heart comfort prints, i started to make a poncho.

I'm not sure if i want to crochet it all as once piece (like a V and then join the ends) or to make two rectangles and join them together. I'll see.

One rectangle is partially done, probably more than the 15% i am reporting. Pictures will follow when i get home tonight.

(i forget how terribly easy it is to take and post pictures hee hee)

Let's see... after i do the poncho, or maybe at the same time, i will begin my first afghan. I wish yarn wasn't so expensive, but i think i have an idea of an easy pattern that will give me a chance to make all sorts of crazy squares to join together. i may do granny squares, but i think i should work on joining colors before i begin the complicated patterns.

But then my DH always suggests i try the hardest to challenge myself. i love him for knowing my strengths ^_______^

so i'll peruse the pattern web pages to find a challenging pattern with scraps of yarn. hope i have enough!

Yarn Sale

okay... so through the sickness, work and final projects for school, i'm finally able to post what i got at the smiley's yarn sale.

Here is everything i bought:

For my sister, i have the Bernat Breeze - color breezy blue (no dye lot) - Acrylic/Nylon Blend - 3 balls of 5 oz.
I needed the crochet hooks because it's so thick!

Then, for my first Afghan, I'm planning to use these yarns:

Lane cervinia, Sorrento (from italy!) Acrylic- 2-10 ball bags of gray, 1-10 ball bag of dark gray

And just for fun, some Red Heart comfort prints:

I was very pleased with the sale. I only wish i had a little more money to spend because they had good colors. But, alas, i have other responsibilities. So we'll see how the afghan comes out like and then i'll get more yarn after that.

No more yarn until i finish my project!

School ends next week and i'll start my afghan then. In the meantime, i have to get started on my sister's hat. Will add progress bars when i get a chance!
