Where I Crochet

Maybe I should say "Where I make my piles"! 

 They follow me wherever I go.

Pammy Sue at Scotty's Place started this by showing how she crochets with all her stuff around her.  

My place is messier then yours Pammy Sue!!!!!!

I ran out of or low on some of the yarn I'm using on my Rainbow Scrap Afghan so yesterday off to Michaels I went. 

 Of course the selection was terrible as usual and the specifics colors I needed not available so I picked out colors in the hues I'm using as best as I could.

I didn't save the yarn labels but I could at least take samples of my colors with me to the store.

Sorry about the burry photos - you bloggers know the story - LOW light conditions!

 It is completely overcast here dark I have to have the lights on in the middle of the day.

My piles are stretching out further and further into our family room. 

 My new yarn is on the floor and my original yarn is on the sofa.

Are you like me? 

Piles, upon piles all around me...and they seem to follow me everywhere...whether I'm in the car, our travel van or even sleeping.   

 As far as crocheting I need to lay out the yarns in order to select the next color hue.  

This afghan has so many colors in it and I'm switching them all the time so it is messier with more piles than usual.   

Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. 

We are still waiting for our new Lazy Boy chairs. 

 I'll miss having a sofa to set my yarn on.

I've started on another green and blue section and I'm going to make it slightly larger than the first two sections.

So where do you crochet?

Are you a neat freak or like me?

Awwww...isn't this adorable!

  1. I love all the colors in the afghan you're crocheting!

    I'm never happy with the yarn selection at Michael's. I guess mine is a smaller store so they really don't have lots of room for everything.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Hee hee! I love your work station! having things around you is very important for inspiration, I can see I will end up like that soon too (learnt to crochet today!) Your afgan is amazing!

  3. When I get into crafting it does tend to take over my house, which is tiny to begin with! Michael's is not the greatest with yarn. Do you have an AC Moore near you? xo

    1. Nope, no AC Moore that I'm aware of close by here. No Hobby Lobby either. I may start ordering my yarn on-line to get what I want. I usually use Caron Simply Soft, Loops & Threads and/or Lily's Sugar n' Cream. Hugs

  4. Looks normal to me! I might just post my work area soon.

  5. Hi!

    I just got finished telling Pammy Sue this... I have to have my STUFF around me when I work. ... Looks like you love Simply Soft ! Check out my blog ... I have an aghan I just finished made with Simply Soft!!!


  6. Está ficando muito linda. Que cores maravilhosas.

  7. Hi,

    I love all your afghans especially the one you are currently doing. I live Australia am trying find the pattern. Love the colours just as i like them. Have trouble with yarn here as well. Looking forward to seeing finished afghan.


  8. Hi dear Friend, You crochet place seems so comfortable and warm... You must see my crochet place... That is messy...:)))
    All best wishes...

  9. I love your beautiful mess! Looks all colorful and snuggly and homey to me. I just posted a picture a couple of days ago of the new chair I got to play with yarn in. These are our THRONES! Ha! It's GOOD TO BE QUEEN {of something at least}.

  10. Like you my mess seems to take over whenever i do a project, at the moment I'm sewing another quilt and there seems to be piles of STUFF everywhere. Anyway who cares it,s me that will tidy it.
