Hi there! Thanks for visiting! I just now finished off my second heart doily/coaster using some yarn I got from KnitPicks just yesterday. This yarn is bigger than the last so makes a larger piece. This is "Shine Sport" in the color "Cosmopolitan". It's 60% cotton and 40% modal. I used my sterling silver C crochet hook and it worked a charm.
Here are them both together so you can see the size difference. The link to the free pattern is on my post before last.. just scroll down.
I wanted to make a hat for my nephew's daughter and needed to get some turquoise yarn.. we looked in my stash and did not find any acrylic in that color... so I went to KnitPicks to get some of their wonderful Brava Worsted yarn.. and ordered a few more colors.. then it said.. if you get a few MORE you can get free shipping.. so you know me.. in order to save $$$ I went ahead and bought the 4 skeins of the cotton sport yarn.. aren't I smart? :-) I think these skeins will find themselves being worked into a pretty blanket.
My daughter-in-law Beth sent me these photos from their trip to Phuket, Thailand to show you. Here is the happy newly married couple.. aren't they gorgeous? My son Shawn really enjoyed the visit there and said the food was amazing.
This is the view they had all week from the posh resort where they stayed and attended the wedding and reception. So beautiful!
Their room was beautiful with their own infinity edge pool.. there were water gardens all around.
Beth got a real kick out of the monkeys there and took lots of photos of them, this image makes me smile.
I play Scrabble on Facebook and had to show you this word I got just yesterday - this is my highest score ever! Woo hoo!
I will head off to swim soon. What are you up to today? I hope something wonderful. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
