Oh, It felt like my birthday or Christmas today! The mail delivered 48 balls of Scheepjes Merino Soft yarn:)! I was so excited! Of course I took them out and looked at them and felt them. Ooooh, they are so so pretty!
So, of course, I dropped all of my other projects and just had to start my Mandala Madness CAL that Esther, from In a Nutshell just finished. She has even made videos to match. I have been watching hers grow and blossom into such a work of art that I just had to grab up the yarn pack from Wool Warehouse and make one of my own. I have a very hard time not wanting to make every beautiful thing I see! Are any of you like that too?
I headed over to crystalsandcrochet.com and downloaded the pdf files, whipped out my crochet needle, and started the rounds. What is it that makes starting a new project so fun? It must be the new colors and techniques. I just love it.
Each round brought a new technique and added color and texture. I finished part 1 in no time at all. The instructions are clear with lots of pictures. I can tell right now that this project is going to be SWEET!
