SIBOL. It is in Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. The colors are peacock and yellow. The peacock is a green blue color. My camera just didn't capture it very well. I can't wait to get more of them worked up and sent out. Hubby is very proud of me for getting some of my stash used up and for a good cause on top of that. Miss sissy roo is working on some granny squares to send also.
I have been very busy finishing up all of my swap goodies and can't wait to show all of you the finished products. I do have a few more sneak peeks.
here. I loved making this and love how it turned out. Can't wait to show you the whole thing. There was a lot of sewing together on this project but the finished product was worth the work.
These are some extra last minute goodies added to the other lovelies. My hubby thinks I am crazy for doing the swaps. I don't think I am though. I love doing and making for others. That is what this hobby is all about. If you can't share your hand made goodies with others what else would you do with them? I got the goodies all boxed up and now they are ready to go tomorrow so I know for sure they will be there by Valentines day. I promise to show lots of pics of the stuff after they arrive at there designated locations. One has to go to CA and the other NY. One end of the US to the other.
Here is a pick of a few of the goodies from my Birthday on January 21.
I got 3 new hooks. They are large ones that I already had in plastic hooks. I'm not fond of the plastic hooks. Two of these have a bamboo handle on them. A journal to use for writing down my crochet patterns in. A granny square dishcloth that sissy roo made for me, and some charms and lobster claw clasps that will become stitch markers. I have been looking at some on Etsy and decided to make my own. I will post more pics when they are finished. I am also getting a sharp crochet hook from HERE. I just ordered it so it should be here in a week or so. I think it will be neat to use. I have always wanted to put crochet edging on stuff but didn't want to take the time to poke the holes and all the stuff to get it on there. With this hook you don't have to do all the extra prep work. I want to make some little socks and baby goodies with it.
And now for some pics of my goody box I got in the mail. I opened it a little early. I wasn't even thinking when I did. My mom (I-L) brought it from the mailbox on Saturday. Sometimes they drop our boxes at her house because they don't want to come all the way back to our house to deliver them. So I couldn't figure out who in the world this lovely little box could be from. Then I opened it and said ooops these are my swap goodies from the Ravelry Valentines Swap. Oh well. So here is a peek.
Here is the box.
And here are all of the goodies that came out of it. I don't know how she fit all of that in that little box. And I thought I was good at stuffing things full.
Hope you enjoyed the pics. I am off to check the other one a days at Gingerbread Girls blog and then off to work on more crochet loveliness. Don't forget, there are still a few days left in my pattern giveaway HERE. Good luck all.
