spoils of shopping

wonderful cotton yarn isn't it beautiful? I went shopping yesterday with my friend Pam and my whole point of going was to get cotton yarn for my dish cloth swap at crochetville. so here's a pix of it all. I love it! (sorry it's a little dark)

I started making a dish cloth as you can see on top it's lana grossa 100% cotton. the cotton yarn here is a little different than what you would buy in the states. I got a deal on the skeins as the store I went to has "their own" line of different yarns for purchase. it's kinda like you see the $$ kind and then they have theirs for like 1-3 euro cheaper. I don't know if it's the store's brand but it's way cheaper. I got some fluffy kind... it's all I know what to call it. see the pix?

anyways she wants a feather boa...so I thought this would make a great fun play one! plus the price was great! anyways that
I started a wash cloths last night it's looking good

I know I need to get on the sock for my sock pal but look here's some progress

so I am working on everything!
I also picked up some dresses for the bub. she loves to wear dresses so I found some great deals at a store called C&A. they are kinda like a big department store here pretty nice.. kinda like a JC penny's with different clothes though. Obviously! LOL anyway sorry I'm boring you I'll stop that now!

Hi Allena!

I am happy you wrote to me on my Blog! :) It is nice to hear that there are people who know what is happening is wrong and they stand their ground. I am trying to get started by making sure that I get the word out and educate people!

Hi Allena!

Have you tried making any dish towles out of netting? They make great scrubbers!
