Yarn along – Week 12 – did I say I didn’t like crocheting?

For this weeks Yarn along over at Ginny’s Small things I can show you two finished objects: The crocheted baby Baby-Blanket-and-Baby-Shoesblanket and some super cute baby shoes.

I will take a picture of the first items with labels for next weeks yarn along. Continue reading

Now I’m really looking forward to receiving the first issue mid April to tell you more about the magazine and if it’s the inspiration for travel thatI expect it to be. But the magazine subscription made me also think about inspirational material in general. Continue reading
