I couldn’t stand it

Cruising the internet, I found the pattern for the mermaid blanket. The yarn is heavier and the needles larger
than what I’m using but that is no big deal. You have to join the website to get the pattern so now I am getting yet another newsletter.

I think I have so many craft patterns and ideas  that if I stopped collecting them and starting making them, I would never run out of stuff to do. I guess it’s another type of hoarding. I did give away all my pattern magazines and most of my sewing patterns last year. The fabric stash is still pretty respectable but the yarn stash is negligible. I take the fifth on the beading stash.

Anyway, I have spent the last hour or so ripping out the stitches that I already did. La Primera said that she liked the pink, but it bugged me. Husband says that I must have been a cat in a past life because I play with the yarn skeins more than I crochet with them.

  1. Thanks, Joanne, I have my fingers crossed.


  2. Theresa, the blanket is much prettier in the lighter weight yarn and the colours you are using. It’s going to be spectacular!
