bought lots of yarn…

KnitPicks had (and may still have) a promo code that gave you a free ball of Chroma with a $25 purchase, so I took advantage of that (I’ve never tried Chroma, have you?).  I bought yarn to crochet the Coming Up Roses Hat, and whatever’s left I’ll use to knit a Totoro Hat.  Dunno what I’ll do with the Chroma yet; depends on how soft it is, etc.  Here are the colors of Comfy Worsted and Comfy Worsted Heather Special Reserve that I purchased:

That’s all I’ve got for today.  I haven’t done much for the past few days (as far as yarncrafts go) but I’ve got an idea for a future crochet blanket that I already have yarn for and a few other things, as well!  I’m gonna have so many WIPs…  How many do you usually have?

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

    Very lovely yarn. The Comfy is so soft. Haven’t tried the Chroma but I love the colour gradient. I have two WIPs right now and try to keep it to three or fewer, or I feel pressured!

  2. I got the free ball of Chroma, too! I chose “Weather vane,” a blue/turquoise gradient. I’m still trying to decide what to make with it. Can’t wait to see what pattern you go with!

    There’s a terrific-looking pattern using Chroma fingering for a crocheted hat on Ravelry called the Very Versatile Striped beanie at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/very-versatile-striped-beanie that looks like it’d be great.

  4. Beautiful colours! Looking forward to seeing them in your future projects 🙂

  5. Three at the moment, well two really because I’m not sure about one of them. I also have many other things in mind, when I finish my motif blanket. I’m planning to redo a border on one of my old makes….sometime, when I’ve had fun making whatever I fancy spontaneously.

  6. Beautiful yarns! Love the Sugar Cookie. I only have 1 knitting project going. A scarf that has been sitting unfinished for some time. But cross stitch WIP’s…Oh my, I think I am up to about 8 or 9 now.
