Well, as you know I also started the Sock yarn blanket by The heathen houswife and I bought all the yarn myself for it. But it seems like all the LYS around carry the same yarn, same colors and so on. I could really use some new colors in my blanket. I´m already using yarn, which is not sock yarn, but has the same length and needle size in my blanket.
Here a current picture of my progress: Not bad for a week and a half working on it...
I´m asking for donations here from my flickr and blogger friends. I don´t need a whole skein. Just the scrap sock Yarn you have left over from you sock projects. This would also fit in an envelope and wouldn´t cost much. In return, I will send each person who send me a donation of their yarn, a cute little felt kawaii creature I sewed. This also fit´s perfectly in an envelope and You will be mentioned in my blog and when I´m done with my blanket, I will knit a sock yarn pillow case the same way and at the end, all people who donated yarn will be in a drawing with their name and win the pillow case.
You can also tell your friends about this and let them send me some. Sock yarn is really expensive and soon the blanket project will be a really expensive one.
PLEASE BE SO KIND and help me. THANK YOU!!!
Here´s a project I worked on yesterday. Instead of snow we have a lot of rain now and so I stayed at home and made the shopping bad I bought at my local supermarket a lot prettier.
Please note the before and after picture. I hate boring bags and i love colorful things. I think for my first attempt, it turmed out great. :-D
I found those littel flowers in a 99 cent store. They have glue on the back and stick by themself on the felt. I used little white buttons for the dots on the mushrooms.
Talk to you tomorrow folks! And I hope that some of you will help me. Thanks again!!!
