I have been crocheting since I was a teenager. Now I am not going to tell you how many years that is - especially since today is my birthday. I don't want to give away the age:))
I probably haven't crocheted anything in the last 10 years or so. I was just into other things. THEN I decided that I wanted a pair of those fingerless gloves made out of a really nice yarn - like Alpaca. So...I went to the yarn shop and grabbed a skein of yarn and made a pair.
I had some leftover yarn so I decided I would make a scarf to match the gloves. This yarn is so soft. It is a combination of Alpaca and silk. So heavenly to work with and touch.
Here is the completed set. I just love how they turned out!
I went to a Sheep and Wool Festival a couple weeks ago that was in Tunbridge, VT with my good friend, Carol Millay. I got some more fabulous yarn while there and I can't seem to stop crocheting! I have made a ton of things and will share some of those with you in future posts as well.
I have some "top secret" Stampin' Up! craft projects to share too. I have to wait until after this weekend to share them though. I am heading to NJ again to my upline, Tina Rosenkrans' for a fabulous weekend - two days in NJ for an overnight and a double shoebox swap (I will be making 20 projects while there - yeah!) and then off to the cabin in the Catskills for Saturday night through Monday. I cannot wait! What a fabulous way to spend my birthday weekend!!!
More to come, so stay tuned.
