Very Blue Yarn

Good morning!  As promised, a pile of blue yarn!  I had an idea for a craft swap I'm in.  A few years back that Good Granny of mine crocheted herself a FABulous pumpkiny orange, chunky sweater.  She had some of that yarn left over and asked if I could make her a purse to match.  Well, not one to let Granny down, I came across a sweet little pattern for a clutch, but it was made with much smaller yarn.  I decided to give it a try with the Chunky Pumpkin and altered the pattern as I went.  It turned out to be Amazing and we both loved it!  In fact, I have had that sweater and purse on my list of to-do's ever since.  I really, Really would love to wear that scrumptious, thick sweater.  Gee, maybe I'll fast track that one to get it done before fall....  Note to self:  Find the pattern.

Anyway, so here I am with my hook and yarn and the plan in my head and I'm trying to remember how I altered the pattern in the first place...  Do you ever do that?  I really should write things down.  So I will have some playing to do with this one, but it should be fun. 

First, since it's not supposed to rain until this afternoon, I think we'll make a trip out to the local zoo.  Everyone's ready to get out and play today.  Even the kitties are acting up.  But the with the bluebirds just about to leave the nest any day now, I can't take a chance on that just yet.  Only supervised walks to the garden, kitts...  Sorry.

Happy day, folks!


  1. Hi! Saw your comment on my wee blog and had to stop by. Love that blue yarn! The color is wonderful. We are planning a trip to the zoo as well, when it cools off some, which at this rate isn't supposed to be till October! Finally due for some rain tomorrow night though so hopefully that will cool it off enough that we can leave the house without roasting.

    Thanks again for stopping by!

  2. I used to knit and crochet but that was many years ago and I wasn't very good at it. I keep thinking I will pick it back up but never do. I envy those who can do this type of thing well.


I love your comments...
