I have added a new item to my Etsy shop! I am absolutely OBSESSED with this yarn! I love Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn! It is the softest acrylic yarn I have ever worked with, and I love using it for infinity scarves. This scarf is also my favorite, but I am also biased that it is all multicolored blue hues (I can’t stop buying blue yarn…). I am ready for fall to begin!
I loved the bag that I made and posted about previously, but something just wasn’t right. The handle seemed too awkward. The pattern had a leather handle, but when I looked it up, it was about $40. Since I had already spent so much money on the yarn, I didn’t want to spend that much on the handle as well. I chose a handle from a set of 2, but it looked too weird so my mom suggested this type of handle. I thought the messenger style purse looked right for this bag, and after sewing it on last weekend, I am totally loving the bag. It feels much more comfortable and doesn’t look awkward anymore. The bright color adds to the pastels in the yarn, and I absolutely love it now!
I finally finished my other project I was working on with my first true love with yarn!!! I used Red Heart Unforgettable yarn named Candied. I was so excited to finish this purse, found in the September/October issue of Crochet Today! this year. I kinda stopped when my husband came home for his R&R, then I began student teaching, but I decided I had to finish this. I have to admit, I felt pretty guilty when I decided to finish this rather than begin my Christmas projects, knowing I won’t have much time when I start taking over the classroom full time… But, I am still so glad I could finish what I started. I don’t usually get project ADD, so I knew I would finish it relatively soon anyway, so I finally finished it last night. It’s my last summer project, and I love how the stripes turned out and everything. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous, amazing yarn!!!!!
