my favorite word !


it is true ... i do like the cheap stuff, though i love the not so cheap too !

progress ...


and i will admit, it does feel kinda nasty to touch. i guess i never really noticed that before, at least not before comments from my previous post. but, i still like the stuff!

i had to ask myself why i like red heart so much ... well, it's so darn cheap! it's the first yarn i ever played with. i remember crocheting chains as a child. it's easy to care for. no dyelots ! i don't think i would ever want a garment made from the stuff ... but it's pretty darn good for a blanket! and the colors are unnaturally vibrant! and, you can buy it pretty much anywhere.

i guess it's a cheap love affair ....

acrylique comes in many forms ...

THIS is stash busting!

old school red heart


these labels are from the old stash. you just don't see labels like this anymore!

Hehe, don't worry, I think we all have a soft spot for acrylic somewhere deep down. ;)

i am actually jealous of something made of acrylique??! those squares are pretty and i love all the colors. you have to teach me to crochet as soon as christmas is over. i mean it.

Man I don't like the look of crochet but I do find the look of granny squares very appealling. I'd learn how to crochet just to knit those and maybe even only knit those!

Well I think that crochet blanket looks nothing short of spectacular!

Yay for acrylique! It's the best for all your vibrant retro crochet afghan needs. It makes me want to bust into my stash right now and get to work.
