yarn love

When my mom came for a visit on Tuesday not only did she bring me the lovely plaid fabric for my Tie One On apron, she also brought me some yarn. More than a skein...a cone. I'm not sure of the content...wool? acrylic? some type of blend? I don't know. What I do know is that it's a lot of yarn and it will look lovely in the form of a Starling Handbag (from Futuregirl). Lined with some fabric from my stash and maybe embroidered a little, it will be so cute. I can see it...can you see it? I just need to master that darn foundation single crochet (fsc). I've been practicing and it just keep curling up on me. Grrrr! Anyway, I wonder what else I can make with this yarn because I know I'll have plenty left over. There's a lot of yarn on that cone. Here's a picture of my big girl holding it just to give you some perspective.

Yes, I's huge! And the best mom got it while thrifting for only $2.00!! The original Bargain Bird (cheap cheap), that's what she is! I have learned from the master! Thanks Mama :o) Happy I've got some plaid to sew. xo ANG

Oh my ... that's some mighty large spool of yarn you have there says Goldie Locks ;-)

I see some market bags! They would make great Christmas presents!
