Color My World

The Good Ol' DaysSometimes I get a little bored with white. So I need some spice.

I made nearly 70 snowflakes from about mid-September to the end of December. That includes about 50 I designed, and 20 of those 50 I've written patterns for now.

I still love snowflakes, but by Christmas Day, I was yearning for color. A few skeins of Furrari took care of A Furrari for Christmas!that very nicely. I finished a sweater back on Christmas Day, and the front was about halfway done by New Year's Eve.

Then I received a package in the mail yesterday. Oooooh la la!!! My first Noro EVER! I'm going to have SO much fun with this stuff!

I'm not done with white, though. Another gem I picked up in December was when my very dear friend Shonna asked if I'd like to help her destash. She had a bunch of thread her grandmother left her, and she doesn't do thread crochet. She knows I do. I'm going to have some fun with this stuff, too!
Design Idea Heaven
While counting up snowflakes, I thought I'd compile a list of all the stuff I did in 2009. Now don't go getting bored or intimidated. I get to work on crafts during my workday commute on public transportation. And I'm really trigger happy with the camera.

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
You can talk to me... (Stevie Nicks)
