But first, yet another roll stitch bookmark. Are you tired of seeing these yet? ;-)

pink roll stitch bookmark

Pattern: Lavender Bookmark. Source: How to Thread Crochet on a Roll from Annie’s Attic. Materials: DMC Cebelia cotton crochet thread (size 10, color #818 Baby Pink) and pink seed beads.

Cebelia is absolutely a joy to work with. This is first time I’ve tried a premium crochet thread. In comparison to much lesser threads such as SouthMaid, I’d say it’s like Godiva Chocolate vs. Hershey’s Kisses. Next time you’re out, treat yourself and splurge on a ball. Check out the informative thread reviews at the excellent web site, Snowflakes and Thread Crochet.

And now, on to the yarn!

Cheryl is such a sweetheart! Her main crochet interest is afghans, and she crochets and donates many lap blankets. Acrylic yarn is the best for donated blankets, and so she sent me a huge box of wool, cotton, ribbon, and other fun yarns from her stash that she doesn’t have a need for. And four pattern booklets, too. Thank you, Cheryl! All of these things are happy and loved in their new home!

Siena Moonbeam chenille Carolina
Micro Spun Tangeri Corrida 4 Linie 108
Cameo Blarney-Spun Knitting Worsted Cuddlespun
Cotton Classic Luster Sheen size 20 crochet thread various shiny threads
four pattern booklets

Over the weekend… a little creativity while pressure-washing the driveway :-) and new storage from Pier 1 Imports for my corks.

    Gorgeous bookmark, Donna! I can’t wait to see what you make with all of that beautiful yarn. :)

    I JUST bought that exact shade of the Microspun Yarn (and, strangely enough, the exact same amount) for a shawl pattern that they have posted on their website…I’m guessing that those yarn balls were orignally earmarked for the same project :)

    That’s quite a gift she gave you!

    I love that bookmark, and have been thinking about learning the roll stitch – might have to pick up that book. Thanks for the great pic! :-)

    Oh, I love that bookmark! I came thisclose to buying some Cebelia a couple of days ago at Michaels, but decided I’d best practice my snowflakes with the regular DMC first.

    lol on your pressure washed tomato. :)

    Opera is one of the best threads to crochet with, but I like Cebeila too. DMC Traditions is a good lower priced thread as well, and I really dislike South Maid.

    I used to work with it when I first started thread crochet, but couldn’t go back to it once I used better threads.

    Your boomark is beautiful.
