On the 15th of January, I got in the car with one of my best friends and I drove with her to Kent, Washington. We spent a lot of time just hanging out, but I also did some crocheting and some shopping. This is the throw blanket I did almost entirely while at Nikki and Dennis’ house. It’s a chevron pattern with 4 rows of shells down each side. I had hoped to use up all of the yarn I broth with me but didn’t quite do it. I also visited two fantastic yarn shops and between them, spent about $120 on some really lush yarns I normally wouldn’t have bought plus a book on crocheting monsters. There are all sorts of neat designs in the book and I hope to make a few of them. The two shops I visited are So Much Yarn in Seattle, and Maker’s Mercantile in Kent. I have nothing but good to say about either one of them. I’m flying home early Wednesday morning so my bags are all packed but I’m looking forward to sharing with you my new lush yarns after I get home and can properly photograph them.Read the rest…
