I Got The Blues.......

Long story short, work owed me a heap of back pay, got it last week, treated myself to the above skein of blue's yarn made from old blue jeans!  How brilliant is that?  (Big thanks to Sybille at Magpie Magic for showing it to me!)  I have a project lined up for it - I lost one of my most favourite wristwarmers last week, the ones I always wear to walk the dog, so I think a new pair in denim blue is in order.

In the meantime, I am crocheting a light lacy blue cotton triangular scarf for myself now that Spring is hopefully on it's way and we can dispense with all the heavy pullovers.....soon, please?  I am using the same yarn as I knitted this shawl with and thankfully crochet is very much quicker!

I love the idea of yarn made from old jeans! I will have to use up some of my stash I hacw before I buy any.

The crochet scarf looks wonderful. I am in full lacey-scarf-for-warmer-days mode myself too!

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO jealous. The yarn looks gorgeous and your new shawl sounds fab. I loved the April Showers one... xo
