Pretty things.

Look at what I got in the mail on Friday! I'm sooo pumped. I ordered them not too long ago from Yes Asia. They said it wouldn't come till the 17th and I got them totally fast! anyways i'm also going to show you som close up pix! ok so i'm trying to upload the 2nd close up but I can't.... stupid blogger...
I love them they look even better in person! The pix are fab and I'm just so pumped. I got them so I could start making tons and tons of amigurumi. The problem is deciding where to start. Decisions decisions....

on another note here are some cake's of yarn that I dyes a while ago they've been sitting on top of my bookshelf waiting for me to take pix so that I can put them on my etsy shop. I'm the person who doesn't really like getting hanks of yarn. Well let me rephrase that. I like getting yarn. I just wish they came to me ready to be crafted. so when an idea hits me i can grab a ball or cake or whatever and just get started instead of having to get out my winder and swift and make a cake. I usually loose my idea by then and bummer i missed. Yes it's true that i could just wind them when i get them but i'm a little lazy about that. Yes I'm a big big procrastinator. Anyways that's why i'm going to sell them in cakes ready to be knit or crochet'd! Oh I was also waiting for a good sunny day so that I could take a good pix in real light of them. It's been nice here lately so viola pix. Any help on naming the colors? They're variegated or ombre what ever you choose to call it.
I've also been trying to find a dress to make for Kelly's baby. But I'm having no luck at finding what I wanted to make. So I'm thinking that I may just have to make up a pattern for her.
I'm also testing a pattern for a group I joined I'll share pix when I get finished!
anyways that's what's been happening here. Thanks for stopping by

Your yarn looks really great! My suggestion for the yarn on the right is "jellybean". The one on the left looks like what I've been knitting some socks out of and I call that my "Wiggle" yarn (only because I bought the yarn on my way to the Wiggles concert).

Have fun making all of those amigurumi!

Allena ~ Remember what our dearest friend, Rachael Ray, always says...clean those veggies when you get home and it saves time later. Well I guess that applys to yarn. Remember that it is a brainless activity and you can do your swiffering while watching the TV! Or get cheaper yarn! The stuff I usually get at Walmart or Michaels usually doesn't have to be re-caked! Anyway have fun with the beautiful yarn you made!

Be careful! Japanese craft magazines can be totally helplessly addictive! LOL!

I think it is a great idea to have the yarn already wound. Just an extra nice touch.
