It’s Yarn Day!

I love it when yarn arrives.  It’s like Christmas.  All year round.  I get really upset if I miss the postie and there are no neighbours around to take in my packages and I have to trek to the post office the next afternoon to pick it up.  The anticipation is just too much for me to bear.

Here’s what’s arrived today.  More Scheepjes Cotton 8.  This time in blues instead of yellows.  Isn’t it beautiful?

The yarn matches my dress perfectly. #scheepjes #scheepjeswol #cotton8

I absolutely love this yarn.  It’s such a great cotton.  It’s soft and strong, and the perfect weight for baby projects.

So baby project it is!  But what?  You’ll just have to check back next week and see for yourself.  For now, the yarn has gone straight into my project box and to the top of the pile of my never-ending To Do list.

WIP Wednesday

It’s taken ages, but finally I get to make Kevin the minion! I’m loving this little guy, and can’t wait to see how he ends up when he’s all done.

I initially went searching for a pattern, but the only one that I loved was All About Ami’s but it was much too big, so I decided to make my own.

He’s working up quickly too, which is what I love about amigurumi projects – instant gratification!

How much do you love minions?  Probably not as much as I do….
