Holiday Stash Busting and new WIP . . .

Hello !!

I'm back from holidays, well actually I was back just last week but a lot of organising after we came back around the house.

I was here, in Nerja, a little Andalusian town in Malaga, we love this place as it is really not crowded, the hotel is very family orientated and family friendly and the place has its old world charm. The town has kept its real andalusian and Spanish feel to it.

Before I left I managed to finish and send the bunting for Yarndale that I mentioned here

During my holidays I started a new WIP, another blanket for my little son Marc, with Drops Paris I bought and told you about it here

 I am doing solid granny squares in the 3 different shades of blue and then a white border, I wanted this blanket to be simple, and I am using a hook size 5 for it.

And during my holidays I bought a basket, perfect to keep my yarn stash, and it seems my yarn stash is not as sad as I thought !! I filled the basket and I still have a full bag of Drops Paris from the offer I bought.

I have to say I was a little wary at the thought of using 100% cotton yarn as I had read that it could be a little stiff, but it has turned out to be really nice to work with and not stiff at all. I'm loving it !!

And now this is my stash basket, do you like it ??

And just if I thought I did not have enough yarn, I bought this offer, just for the free yarn !!
all for 1.99 Euros

Have a wonderful weekend !!



  1. De vacaciones...pero ocupada. Lindos proyectos!

  2. Hope you guys had a most wonderful time on vacations, the pics are awesome, thank you for sharing..!!! :):) Love from France!!

  3. Looks like you have had a lovely holiday, what a beautiful place to visit.
    The blanket for your son is coming along nicely, and your new stash basket is great. I love the photos of the basked filled with all those gorgeous balls of yarn :)

    Have a nice week!

  4. How did I miss this post last week? The pictures of your vacation are gorgeous. And all your crochet.... I love the crochet for yarndale. Your son's blanket is going to be so lovely. When I have used cotton yarn, I found that it split apart a little. Maybe I was using cheap yarn. I am glad it is working for you. Your basket of yarn is lovely. Have you seen this site?
