Yadda Ya

The yarn I ordered off of Ebay came in on Monday. I ordered it on the 17th and it arrived on my doorstep 6 days later. Under most circumstances that wouldn't be a too awesome, but did I mention that the yarn came all the way from Hawaii? Yeah...shout out to Deneen for bringing this seller to my attention. She also has a website. Go check it out...after you get done here, of course!

I don't yet have my copy of Interweave Crochet but I broke down and ordered it online. Paying the almost $5 for shipping hurt, but that's less than I would have had to spend on gas to go to the next town to buy it so I guess it all works out. I ordered it on Monday, so it should be here sometime next week, I think.

In the meantime, I've been crocheting again. I worked on a crocheted cupcake pincushion. I didn't use a pattern just winged it. It's taken me longer to complete it than the Chic On The Halfshell did. How lame is that? I thought it would be a no brainer kind of project. Damn it. I think I like it, but I haven't made up my mind yet. It isn't quite what I had envisioned, but it's still cute. It's another gift for my friend Morgan in Missouri. [waves to Morgan]. I'm also thinking about making my version of the Corn Cob seen here. I don't have enough yellow yarn, though. There's still time so it might happen. By the way, I love the ideas in the book I linked to up there...goofy stuff, but it's cute and I love a good laugh!

I would take a picture of my beautiful yarn and silly cupcake, but my motherboard is fried and we haven't yet gotten everything back to normal. on the up side I got my Mother's Day gift early this year...a new computer [sans the monitor...nothing wrong with it, thank goodness] Yay for technology!

I know she ships the yarn right away, but coming from Hawaii first class takes it's time sometimes. I got an order last week from her-I ordered two separate days and the second order came the day before the first order, yet the first was shipped first. Following me?

Didja like the yarn?

I'll have to check out that seller! I have ordered recycled sari yarn, and opal sock yarn from ebay, but I bet I could find a lot more stuff there if I tried harder.
