It's expensive but it had stuff that I have been hunting all over the place over here for

I took the following pics off of the internet since I still don't have my digital camera

I got the last two thingies of the following yarn


Two different sized afghan hooks pretty much like the one on the pic below so it opens a whole lot more possble things I can make as I can now learn to do Tunisian Crochet


A large Susan Bates hook like the one below so I can now FINALLY do rugs


and this is where I spent a LOT of money just now cause I FINALLY found a place that sells assorted steel hooks which is what I like to work with!

DH told me about 6 months ago that I was not allowed to buy anymore fabric. I have a cabinet that is 7 feet tall by 36 inches deep and 28 inches wide and it is full and I have more fabric all over the house. So now my friends just give me stuff and so do the ladies at my church. He finally gave up on not letting me buy it because I kind of half to. My walmart stopped selling fabric and everything they had was 75% off. I came home with 15 yards of fabric and I was soooooo happy. He just shook his head at me and I told him there was no way that I could pass that up...I only spent $10!!

That was totally off topic..but that is me....I don't go with the flow!

I really only crochet in the winter because it is cold and yarn gets hot so this summer I gave away 99% of my yarn to my friend who makes hats for the homeless and blankets for everyone that she knows for Christmas. She starts in May or June because she has so much to do. I figured that I will get some of it back in the form of a few blankets and she always makes my kids hats and scarfs and mittens so it is cool. She really appreciated it and I will get new stuff this winter...after I finish the king size blanket I have been working on for 3 years...lol It is going very slow.
