Shawl Crochet-a-long

Yep we're still in the middle of moving but I just couldn't pass up starting a new project. :D
I was reading my July/August issue of Crochet Today!and stopped in my tracks when I saw the Sari shawl! How beautiful! The weight, stitch pattern and of course the color! I just knew I would have to make it.
I really wanted the same coral color and I went to one of my LYS All About Yarn. Once I got there, I asked for some help with choosing the correct yarn and was pointed to multiple types with fabulous choices for color! I started being me and looked at all the "safe" colors and then told myself to be brave! I did and picked up a 100% mercerized cotton in a hot,hot red and hurried to pay and leave before I changed my mind.




So I'm starting today. Check back and see how I progress. What are you working on this summer?
With love,

A-Hunting We Will Go, A-Hunting We Will Go

Hi ho the dairy-o, a-hunting we will go.
The hubby and I rolled into Greenville, SC in the wee hours of the morning, got some sleep, and are off on a whirlwind 2 days of house/apartment hunting. :).
If anyone knows the area, tell me your favorite neighborhood or those to steer clear from. We both will be working from home so we are wide open to suggestions. I'll be taking lots of photos of each place we go, so come back later for an update. :)




With love,

Garage Sales Are An Opportunity

Our luck seems to be continuing with the move (knock on wood)! This weekend was our annual neighborhood garage sale, what timing right? Our front driveway looked like a furniture store.




So while I was looking for my credit card reader in my craft fair box, I thought to myself "Why not sell some crochet?". At the very least it may draw more people in by being colorful and at most I may sell something! So I gathered some items up, moved a table around and set things up.




Sure enough, my luck continued on! I sold a baby hat and blanket! Yea me! The garage sale went well too! We got rid of many big pieces of furniture and are a little closer to our move.
Hope your weekend goes well too!
