I’m so super-excited, I’m getting impatient.
The yarn package for Janie Crow’s Crochet Club 2013 was mailed on 25 January, so it’s on the way. Maybe I’ll get the package this week; or maybe next week. How long does a package from the UK take to reach the US?
I signed up for the CAL (my first CAL too!) based on this picture – yep, as soon as I saw the colours, there was this click in my brain that said that I had to make this. And signed up for it right away.
Never mind that I had a moment of panic when I saw the membership fee (converted from UK Pounds into US dollars). I could have cancelled … but I didn’t. I just promised myself that there would be no more yarn-buying for the next six months – this will take the place of that. So, all you yarn stores – no sales on yarn until the summer!
From pictures of the previous projects for the Crochet Club, this is just a piece of the design – maybe a major motif. There are other minor pieces that go with this, to be joined together into one big beautiful blanket. Oh, and there’s beads as well to work with! I didn’t read anything about working with beads, but then I wasn’t really reading the fine print – I was too busy being excited about working on this project.
I’m killing three birds with one stone with this project – a motif-based project; my first crochet-a-along; and a major heirloom project. Perfect, isn’t it?
Can’t wait to start this new adventure …
