another gift almost done


anyone knit or crochet?
see this ball?
it 
is BiG  and I mean bigger than my thumb thick

but soft


one of my nieces wanted one of those textured 
blankets that go for 300 bucks

but I found this yarn at Michaels
and decided to try it


size 50 needles   (width of 2 of my fingers together)
makes big chunky stitches

I have four skeins in this so far
I bought 8 total
and I think it should finish around 50x60
which is a pretty good size

I want to finish it and let her sister see it
to see what she thinks.........
but then again

I HAVE FIVE NIECES lol

I may be in trouble if I do that ha ha


***update***
Jenny must be talking to Michaels
because they sent me an email
25% OFF
INCLUDING SALE ITEMS
so I went looking for this yarn online
it was cheaper than I paid
PLUS I got the discount

long story short,,,,,,,,
enough yarn for three more are coming my way
and they will be $45 a piece
not too bad considering the first one
was almost 80!

now if those darned needles would arrive I could 
put the pedal to the metal and get these done!
are you making any non-quilted gifts?

  2. Fun, looks big and heavy and hot at least for our current weather, to be working on.

  3. Yes, I am knitting yet another shawl, and waiting to get yarn for a "slouchy" beret hat for Winter walking...
    those blankets should be so cozy...hugs, Julierose
