Got the "Cold Shoulder"

The Cold Shoulder Capelet that is. Pattern is from the SnB Happy Hooker, crocheted in black Caron Bliss. This one is a surprise for my DD, and I think it'll look nice with the Chic Hippie Skirt.

I'm dealing with her absence a little better. I went for a visit a few weekends ago, and that helped me tremendously! We had such a fun weekend! I was able to see for myself that she was happy, and adjusting to college life rather well. She's doing great in all of her classes, with Psychology and New Testament being the most difficult.

This capelet will be in her next goodie package from home.

Chic Hippie Skirt

I am so thrilled, My first crocheted article of clothing!!!!! This is made from Sinfonia yarn, about 9 skeins. The pattern is in the book "Hooked On Crochet". Here's a close up of the yoke:

I'll be mailing this to my DD, who has waited oh so patiently.
I'd love to hear your comments!

Yarn Find!

Nobo yarn from Wallyworld, on clearance for $1.00 a skein! So I had to buy all they had (except for the green). I don't think my hubby was over joyed, but I was ecstatic!!!! I don't usually find the good buys, I just hear about 'em from other lucky people. Yeah, I know, wa-wa.
