This is my cotton yarn for dishcloths and such. Sugar 'n Cream, Peaches and Cream and the red in the corner is Lion Brand.
This is my crochet thread. When I first started crocheting I made Barbie clothes and TRIED to sell them online. :(
Here starts the real mess. We have Caron Simply Soft, Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn, some Red Heart Holiday, and Bernat Baby Blanket (used for bunnies and blankets), also some tulle(don't ask).
There is a slight overlap on the pictures. But this one has some Yarn Bee, Baby Bee, and a lot of Lion Brand Homespun (for Prayer Shawls)
This is the rest of the picture above. And yes there is more yarn in that bag in the bottom right corner. Keep going it's coming.
This is all Red Heart Super Saver.
This is what was in the bag. It is Lion Brand Hometown USA. The Red and Black are left over from Mr.Boo's Puppy Blanket, and the rest is left from a prayer blanket I did about 3 years ago for a little girl(4) who had cancer. I'm sad to say she is no longer with us.
This little guy, now my mascot, has been lovingly named the yarn monster. Not sure how he ended up this way but he was cute. He just needed some eyes.
All of the above yarn was sorted and re-stuffed into two boxes. I was so proud. Then today I found the following.
All of this is for another bunny snuggle, baby blanket and washcloth set. It is Bernat Cotton Tots and Bernat Baby Blanket. Except the cone of cotton yarn. It was just hanging out in my bedroom. The bunny is finished all but his ears.
This is my stash of I Love This Cotton (Hobby Lobby) that I am using to start myCrochet Version of the Bee Keepers Quilt. You can see my three hexi puffs in the top right corner. And the latest book I am reading. It is Jillian Dare by Melanie M. Jeschke. I love her books.
This mess was found in a bag in my bedroom in the bottom of a closet that has shelves in it. I keep my crochet books and such in there. It is mostly I Love This Yarn (Hobby Lobby) . There is some Lion Brand Home Spun, Some baby Yarn, some red and black yarn I used to make my daughter some lady bug slippers last year for Christmas. And some barbie dress yarn(see dresses below). The yellow and red yarn at the top in bags are tiny granny squares that I was going to use to make my son a duck quilt with. Needless to say I abandoned the cause and used the yarn to make him a different blankie instead. I may sew them together for square to send to SIBOL or see if I can send them the way they are.
Here are some of the Barbie Dresses I have done. One is yellow with green trim. One is light pink with darker pink trim (it's under the yellow one but you can see the hat.) then there is a green with yellow trim that I never finished. There is also my long double ended crochet hook in the mess.
This was part of my Christmas goodies. I got the idea from Debi. I got polymer clay and some alphabet rubber stamps to use to make handles for my crochet hooks. After covering them with the clay I used the stamps to stamp the letter in the bottom and sides so I would know what size they were. I love them. I thought I had all of them covered then I found three of four more. Plus I have some sizes I don't have on my b-day list. Just 19 more days to go. I will be 37 and Mr. Boo will be 7 in March. Hubby will be 43 and sis will be 13, both in June. And we will be married 19 years also in June.
Here is my collection of hooks and a few knitting needles. The ones to the far right are the ones that light up. The top right ones were given to me by my mom-in-law. They are the tiny one and were her grandmothers. I also slipped in my new hook bag that was also for Christmas. It is a Knit Happy brand. I also got a crochet happy Clearly Mine Tote in blue and green. (Click on link to go to their site and see the inside of hook bag and other bag plus all the other goodies they make.)
This box has some crochet magazines and leaflets in binders , plus binders with patterns printed off the Internet.
Here are some of my books and other magazines. Plus my I taught myself to knit kit. Pardon the hunting clothes in the back. Hubby has a spot at the end of the bed where they "live".
I think that is it as far a pictures go. I have to tell you though there are at least a 6" to 12" stack of crochet magazines hid in a basket and drawer that I did not dig out because hubby was lurking around about to have a fit when he saw all that was being unearthed. I guess I am going to have to get busy and make something with all of the yarn. I have some projects planned so hopefully I can use some of it up. When I run out of the I Love This Cotton, I guess I will move on to some of the others. Now that I have eaten about 6 dark choco kisses(my favorite although I prefer the Hershey nuggets with dark choco and almonds) and my dinner of grilled chicken, rice and fat free re-fried beans (the others had it as a taco), and typed all of this I am wore out. Pant Pant. I hope you enjoyed my mess and this little glimps of my life. Just glad I got it all put back up and it's not running out everywhere. I am off to shower and maybe get one hexi puff in for today. Will post the outcome of that tomorrow if I'm not too busy chasing the kids around. They go back to school Thursday. I am ready for some quite but I will miss them when they go back. Have a great night.
Don't forget I am looking for testers for my puppy snuggle blanket.
