I headed out to Value Village for my first time today. Little did I know, on Monday everything with a yellow tag is only 99 cents! I picked up two of the most beautiful hand crocheted afghans. If anyone has tips on how to wash them I would appreciate it. Probably will just throw them in the washer on a cold cycle since they’re made of acrylic yarn.
It makes me a little sad knowing that someone worked so hard on these beauties and now they are selling for only 99 cents! But I take solace in the knowledge that I will love them and get lots of use out of them… I’m one of those people that always has a blanket on my lap when I’m at home, and even at friends houses sometimes! My friend Rosie jokes that i use her throw blankets more than she does.
Of course Knitty Kitty had to check it out right away to see if she approved.
Not so fast! Introducing Knitty Kitty/Stella’s new younger sister, Kodiak. We adopted her a little over a month ago, and after a couple terrible weeks of sickness she is fitting in wonderfully at our house. She already claimed the purple blanket as her own.
I just love the iPhone Hipstamatic app! Did you see how in the newest (August 2010) issue of Martha Stewart Living they used Hipstamatic for their article on old-fashioned bikes? Love!
