New Yarn and Patterns

Remember to enter my giveaway this week!

Anyone else out there get stuck in a rut for a while? I find projects I enjoy, and I make them to death! I constantly go back to yarn textures that I'm comfortable using. My color choices become predictable.

The good news is that I know what types of yarn I want for certain projects, and I get pretty fast at those patterns, right?! Currently, I have several "go-to" projects, and thankfully, that helps keep me from getting bored by any one of them in particular.

Just the same, it's nice to get new inspiration!

Ring, ring: MAIL TIME!
A couple weeks ago, I told you about Paula's giveaways on her blog. She was having a huge birthday celebration by sharing tons of goodies with her readers. It was such a blast! I was fortunate enough to win several skeins of yarn. They arrived in the mail yesterday! Super fun. Paula, being the VERY generous sweetie that she is, threw in a TON of fun patterns for me, too!

The tip of the iceberg:

And the new skeins of yarn:

In the busyness of Thanksgiving, I neglected to post this that Tamara from Crochet with Tamara sent to me:

So much new inspiration at my fingertips, now! I can take the hint: Get off that computer and start making something new! =D
