It's my birthday on Thursday. (I'm going to be 27 - eek!!)
I'm excited because I'm going yarn shopping!! Not for anything expensive... Just a brand new stash of Stylecraft Special DK!! And possibly going to treat myself to a ball of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino to add to my collection :-)
One of my 'resolutions' for 2011 is to start and finish a blanket for myself this year. I have potentially 3 more baby blankets to make too!
I also want to make a cushion cover for a huge squishy cushion pad that I have my eye on in John Lewis! (I love JL's polyester cushion pads!)
I'm going yarn shopping today too, but for baby blanket yarn. I've decided Hayfield Baby Bonus DK is a fantastic yarn! (well it is made by Sirdar!)
I might also have to pop into the new Whittard shop in Eldon Square and see if they have any pretty mugs in the sale! (incidentally, morrisons have some gorgeous mugs - 2 for £3!!)
Back to work tomorrow too :-( oh well :-(

  1. Hi,

    I found your blog today, clicked through from another, and I think we have a few things in common so I've become a follower.

    I love the colours you choose for your crochet. I'm not creative at all sadly, but I do like to read about what others are creating.

    Happy Birthday for Thursday :)


  2. Hi! Thanks, that's so nice to hear you like my stuff! Do you mind if I ask where you clicked through from? I'm always interested to know how people find me!

  3. Have fun yarn shopping, I love coming home with a big bag of new wool, I usually have to sneak it in the house though, hubby thinks its taking over the house.
    Have a fab birthday. xx
