Hello all !
I have been shopping . . . just a little bit.
Back in July I saw a few projects made with Paris yarn by DropsGarn Studio and I could not get it out of my mind.
When I went to check the colors I saw it was on sale during July only and so as I had to go to town, I checked for a store that stocked Paris yarn and found one.
I already had in mind to make another blanket for my son and daughter.
I wrote down the colors I wanted and set off to buy them.
In that store they did not have all the colours for my daughter's blanket and so I got these ones:
Only these will go to my daughter's blanket, along with the pinks they did not have in stock:
And the rest will go to my son's blanket.
I bought each skein (50 grs) at 1.30 euros each (normal prices is 2.00 euros each).
When I came back from France I thought as the offer lasted until 31st July, I should buy as many as possible and then the rest I will buy them at normal price in September when they re-stock.
And so I got this pack yesterday by courier from an online store in Spain:
and in total I have all this yarn:
Which they did not have in any of the stores. . . and I now don't know if I will not use it in the end and I use the colors I have or wait until September and see if I do get it in the end. . . hummm, cannot decide. . .
And the right half of the lot are for my son's blanket:
Again, here I'm missing a turquoise blue, number 02:
And . . . again cannot decide whether to leave it or wait until I get it. . .
What do you think ? Should I wait for both and add them ?
I dont think I got enough yarn in the end. . . I never seem to know how much I will need.
Do you ?
The other thing I cannot decide is on the pattern.
I have been looking in Pinterest for inspiration and I'm torn between and African flower afgan or sunburst square or just simple squares in different colors.
How do you see these colors used in a blanket ? Any ideas ? suggestions ?
The decision I have finally taken is that I will from now on write the blog only in English. I'm sorry as my mother will be the first one not being able to read it but I really, really cannot do it in 2 languages anymore, something has to go. . .
I truly hope my Spanish readers can understand. . .
And last. . . I also bought this from the Madrid Cath Kidston store, during the sales.
The 2 boxes were 10 euros (for both) and the measuring tape (which I did not need. . . ) was 3.80 euros, not bad . . .
HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND !
