I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, because I certainly did! I spent Friday night with my family for my birthday dinner and I got some seriously awesome presents!
I received a crochet kit for miniature animals that includes little alley cats in trashcans. Too cute for words right?? I also received a crochet food kit which I used to make Two Peas in a pod for my best friend at work.
I also received some of what could be considered one of the best presents to get....CASH. I used the money I got to buy things related to crocheting...OF COURSE! I'm a little obsessed lately with everything I can get my hands on related to Crocheting. I think starting up/attempting to start a business has sent me into crochet over drive!
Rowan and I went to a second hand book store and I picked up both of these books for under 10 bucks! The yarn book is a hard back that is listed on the back as being 30.00 and I got it for 5!! The finger puppet book was originally 15.00 and I got it for 3! I have been reading about Kool Aid dying and the like for months but still haven't had the guts to try it...After showing the pictures in the book to Rowan he agreed its a project I should definitely dive into! He also said he would help which makes it even more exciting! The finger puppet book is just adding to my pile of small animals to make. I also teach toddlers so i feel that I could make quite a few little cuties for my kiddos at work to play with.
I also spent alot of time at the dog park this weekend with my puppy and I got to try out a new pattern for a wonderful fellow Raveler. I will share that finished cutie on Friday though! Tomorrow is my day off from work which means more time to devote to finishing up my animals for Craft Fair. I guess I also might have to put a new project on my hook because currently I dont have anything....Maybe a monkey finger puppet? We will see! Check back in on Wednesday to see what I decided on!
