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