Finished Item - Baby Blanket

Ta Da! I have now finished the baby blanket that I started the other day. I'm not really someone who likes a lot of green but I really don't mind this one at all.

Here's a bit of a close up.

I went shopping again. I couldn't help it. You see, someone delivered a catalogue in my letterbox and I looked inside. There was this colourful yummy-ness on one of the pages and it seemed to be calling my name. I'm not trying to make excuses or anything but I swear that is exactly how it happened when I looked that the catalogue yesterday afternoon. Sam's Warehouse had acrylic yarn on sale, two balls for $4. I just had to get some. I know I didn't really need it. I probably don't truly have the room for it but I just had to get it! How can you ignore something that is talking to you?

So I went shopping. The colours were so pretty. I could have stood there for ages trying to decide which ones to get. I honestly could have spent a lot more money than I did. I have absolutely no idea what I will make with it, not yet any way. Do you have any ideas for me?

And of course just to make sure I had it stored properly I bought another plastic tub to keep it in.

Ha! Ha! I've had that problem too, in the past, with yarn calling my name and talking to me! ^_^ When it does it now...I put a crocheted 'sock' in it's mouth! LOL And by the way, how about a Yoyo bag in those pretty pastel colors, or a rainbow baby blanket!

lol Poetess, I guess that means I should have a crocheted sock available at all times :)
I like the idea of a yo-yo bag. Especially since your one turned out beautifully. Although I don't know if I am confident enough to make one yet. I still struggle with crochet patterns :-S
