nothing sucks worse than losing a ball of yarn. my receipt says 10 balls, but i only have 9. where did it go? was it ever really there? did it come home with me or did the cashier not put it into the bag? this inquiring mind wants to know, so the next time i'm at miguel's, i'm going to speak with a manager ... "um, did someone find a ball of yarn on the store's floor?". as the yarn sniffer would say, rats on a stick!

but, this little mishap is not going to impede me from crocheting on ....

my shawl now has 9 completed motifs (9 out of 66!). i love looking at it and playing with it, and pretending it's really going to be a tablecloth or skirt

fly away!
fresh bug! made just this morning!

The crochet motifs are so cute in that color.

Oh, poor you... I hope that tenth ball of yarn did show up someplace in the meantime - fingers crossed!
I'm absolutely impressed by your crocheting, gosh, that's amazing indeed! And I love the bug, such a smiley, happy face!

Agent Gray,
Thanks to your email, I've shown my lack of adult patience, and I went out and got the Knitting Nature book. Fabulous! I've already started the spiral scarf with some SWTC Soy Silk from Bella. The pattern would be fun to adapt into crochet as well......

dear dipsy, i went to back to the store and they let me take home a 10th ball of yarn, so all's good!

dear agent aubergine, i'm so glad i'm an enabler. i want all my friends to own books i don't own (yet) so i can drool over them!

Oh No! I am glad it did not impede your progress, however.

loved the picture of the yarn sniffer.

took me a minute to figure out where you got the yarn. Obviously a little confused this morning.

Katie K -- how about Agent CFK Mohair as a new name?
