I updated my post about Ty Beanie Boppers. Not much new except Paula. About my Beanie Boppers

I mean, if you saw Paula for $1.99 wouldn't you grab her? No? Well, I did.

so how many infinity scarves can I wear or give?

Can you see the sparklies? It is Caron Party yarn. I ended up going to my mom's again and didn't bring a project so went to that super store across the street and grabbed a crochet hook and a ball of yarn. These infinity scarves are fun and quick so here's another. I did it differently this time, just chain 5 and sc in each space, a simple thing really. Around and around. I really want to do that doll sweater, I have about three rows done but it's too hard to concentrate and talk to Mom at the same time. Oh well.

Look what I got in the mail!!!

 I am so excited for my friend Lorna Miser of Lorna Miser Designs. She is the former owner of Lorna's Laces Yarns and now she's starting a new adventure, Zombie Yarns; Lorna Dyes Again!

I had the privilege to give her a smidgen to help her startup costs. SO... she sent me a project bag and a skein of yarn!

She has these for sale on her website....

The yarn is lovely. It's purple-y  with a hint of red. I need a better camera (I wonder how many years I have said that!)

Anyway... I have a pattern picked out, waiting for Lorna to put it on Ravelry where she sells her to get out those needles....
