Last friday mom and I found this magnifiscent crochet book from leisure arts at our local yarn store.....°_° It was a must so we bought it.
It wasn't really expensive (round 260MXN), and is worth every single cent of it. InsideI found a treasure of new posibilities for my bags and stuff in general. There's a small chapter about the history of crochet, all the techniques, how to's of main stiches aaaand....
Look! There's even a stitch pattern gallery along with pictures, steno and explanations :D makes me sooo happy :D
The real objective of our visit was to get some yarn for a nice baggy mom's been wanting to crochet for some time now. We chose cotton ease from Lion Brand. As if the book wasn't enough, there were some italian yarns on sale, 50% sale!!! linen-cotton-silk blend yarn....Yummy!! It was a must... jejeje Ya know Im an addict and so is mom....as mother as daughter I guess.
Here, I took some pics of the yarns:
I managed to get 300g of this beautiful beige silky cotton
Got 150g of both orange and red
and my color choice for the baggy...I have just the right fabric for the lining
On other crafty news, my parents gave a really nice present: a brand new sewing book called "Coser en casa" (sewing at home)....it's a sewing bible that lingers from basics to home decor and such :D missa happy....
