This past weekend we travelled to our nearest Spotlight store and I had a few enjoyable hours of checking out yarn and fabric rolls and flicking through a few crafty books. Thankfully, both the dress fabric and yarn were on sale. Always a good thing to point out to the patient husband. I felt a little extra organized this time around because I brought a notebook in which I had written down yarn and fabric requirements for the projects I'd like to attempt this winter. Of course it was only a few patterns in the end that I managed to find suitable fabric and yarn for, not the least because I did have a budget to stick to. Not to mention the tired toddler that only wanted to be held by me.
I thought you might like to see what I came back with. First on my list to make now is the Wiksten Tova, and I thought the raspberry plaid cotton would be perfect. The olive paisley cotton poplin I can see being made into a Darling Ranges dress, which should be good for layering. The grey floral with tiny strawberries will likely become a Sunki for Julia. Of course I am only hoping that I will have more time for sewing than I've had lately. My corner of the sewing room has been sadly neglected of late.
As for the yarn, I came home with some lovely Cleckheaton mustard yellow and I am hoping to turn it into a Fisherman's Pullover for Violet. The blue ModaVera will hopefully become a My Honey cardigan for Julia. Goodness, I am going to be busy. That is a lot of yarn.
Do you have any winter crafty plans?
