Some Yummy Yarn

Here's the delicious yarn from the Shop Hop. The top picture is yarn for some Tatum Projects: solid pink cotton Flash for the Sweet Pea Cardigan from Interweave Crochet; variegated Evita for a Caprice Girls Crochet Dress; and some fancy novelty yarns to add to a purse I'm working and maybe around a neckline of some fun pattern.

That blue is a gorgeous Silky Tweed. I bought all that was in the shop and want to make a short-sleeve cardigan or wrap for me. No pattern in mind yet, though.

The tangerine mercerized cotton just called my name, for either a sleeveless shell or something. I'd love some ideas. I ended up with 350 grams, about 850 yards.

Then, the copper ... that will make an amazing top, too ... I need to swatch it up to find the right pattern, but I just HAD to have it. I think it's going to be a bit tricky to work with. Good thing I got some free yarn bras in my Goodie Bag.

And, finally, for the "dreaded" Drops Top -- white bamboo. I love working with bamboo and couldn't find more of the color I have already, so bought some new. I even got a cool new Size D Crochet Hook, an Addi Comfort Grip by Skacel. Now I need to get my Crochet-a-Long buddies to help me with the pattern, though. My bobbles aren't going sideways. I think I'll go back to my Capelet pattern, since the flowers remind me of that pattern, that I liked by the way. Wish me luck!
