A few more boleros. Both are based on patterns by Donna Rutledge aka Nina-Kate - http://ninakate.blogspot.com. Both boleros were done with Jo~Ann Sensation Gemstone, a yarn that is discontinued. I found the yarn from the clearance bin at my local Jo~Ann store.
Today my cousin Rhonda and I attended Martha’s Poncho Day show in New York City.
Everyone in the audience had a poncho on, even her dogs. The show was very interesting.
Guests were Lily Chin, a very fast crocheter, comedian David Spade who was a hoot and Sesame Street’s Elmo who also wore a poncho. Everyone in attendance received a poncho, a cookie of Martha wearing a poncho and an Elmo DVD.
After the show Rhonda and I headed down to the Village for lunch at BBQ. After lunch we made a visit to Smiley's Yarn store in Woodhaven where we both added to our stash. We ended the day watching the show when it was retelevised later that evening.
I made this poncho this weekend to wear to Martha Stewart Poncho Day tomorrow in NYC. The instructions say to wear something colorful. Well the only other Martha type ponchos that I have and didn't give away are a solid black one and a cream colored one. Since I had a few skeins of Lion Brand Homespun in the stash I did another one up just for the show.
Okay I finally started this blog. Let's see how I keep up with it.
Today is Friday and my day off from work. I got the nails and other errands done first off.
Then I played good samaritan by taking my friend Joanne grocery shopping. I hate grocery shopping with a passion. I especially hate hauling the stuff in and putting it away. Hell I don't do it at home as my kids have to earn their keep somehow, sigh! But Jo can't do it and she only has Gail and I. At least I got a good workout in, LOL!!
Anyway once I got home I cooked myself a nice steak dinner. I hate cooking too and don't do it much anymore.
Then I got on the computer for a bit. Now my puters I love. I finally created this blog. I've been wanting to but figured I'd spend too much time messing with it instead of crocheting - another thing I love to do ;-)
I'm going to try and finish the shrug I started this morning. BTW I picked up some yarn today. Like I really needed anymore in the stash. But The Rag Shop got a new batch of mill ends. And I had a coupon. So I got a pound bag of a nice blue acrylic for only $1.97. I also picked up a skein of Sensation Rainbow Boucle at Jo~Ann's using another coupon, yes!! Go coupons, they are a hooker's best friend :-)
