Yarn Stash and a Crochet WIP!

Hi there ! How are you all doing ?

Finally , my yarn starvation period ended last week :) I just wanted to share my latest stash which I received through mail order from Pradhan stores . These are Anchor knitting cotton . I got 2-4 balls of each of these colours .  I am eager to make lot of things with these lovely colours .



These are thick silky threads of a local brand . Luckily their colours are fast. Earlier , I had purchased similar kind of local threads and to my disappointment all the colours came out after the test wash .
WIP : I have made these crochet spheres for one of my projects . I have made five of them . I am anxious to complete this project and share with you all but I just hop around all my projects! Or maybe the projects hop around me to get their attention – Will it be my show on the post today? Me! Me ! Me first!! They all follow me crazily :)

The tutorial for these perfect spheres is available here .


This Mercat is just crazy about these balls !!
I will be away for next week to visit my mother :)  I hope I will be able to post one more part of WIP before Saturday this week .
Happy blogging !!
Preeti :)

  20. This silky yarn looks tempting. Would you be interested in yarn swapping or something? Just let me know.
    And what hook size you use for Anchor knitting yarn. I dont find them very soft to work with. I use 2 mm hook. I tried 2.5, but that was no better.
