YOP Sunday

Happy Sunday!  I have some interesting pictures for you LYS! 
The round table is where we have classes.  In fact it was ready for our crocheted jewelry class that I had signed up for. nice not to have to order them online when I need them.
All kinds of yummy yarns and fibers...........
There are books you can borrow and magazines and notebooks brimming with patterns of all sorts.
There's also a big rectangular table in the middle of the room where we all gather to talk and knit and crochet or whatever.........
I 'm making progress on the gusset of my sock but didn't really work on it too much this week as I worked on the blanket KAL and I had my class plus day to day chores which have been taking center stage with Spring cleaning.
Here' s the KAL and this is such a fun project to work on.  I can watch t.v. yet each square is individual so even if you do mess up you can just unravel and do that one square over.  I am just having the best time with it and although easy it's not boring.....LOVE!!!!!  I highly recommend this pattern.  There is no web site but it is called Rambling Rows Afghan and is from Cottage Creations in Carpenter, Iowa 50426-0070.   I'm sure you could ask your LYS for it as they have many patterns available besides this one.
This is the result of my crocheted jewelry class.  If I do it again I would use a smaller crochet hook but it is fun and fast although I'm doing some decoupage on the heart and earrings to match for my daughter's birthday so I will be taking another class to finish the set.  Below you can see the paper I will use for the heart and then the little round ones for matching earrings with the same red and black beads.
The bottom part is my work and the top part is a pre-made heart chain I added to make it longer.  There were 4 of us in the class and we laughed and had a great time!
That's all for this week!  The sun has finally come out so it's back to walking and mowing now after all the rain we've had.  I hope you are "high and dry" where you are and enjoying this Spring!
Happy Trails!


  1. I love virtual tours of other LYSs'. It looks so lovely. Crochet jewelry intrigues me... Maybe I should give it a go...

  2. Your lys looks fab, I wish I had one! Well done with your jewellery, it looks lovely :-)

  3. Awesome creative space!!
    Love your projects too!

    You keep me thinking and planning on projects. I feel like such a slacker, compared to you :)

    Hope the coming week is a great one for you!!

  4. That Rambling rows is really cool! I am anxious to watch that one progress! Nice shop you have to go to and learn and visit! :)

  5. Oh love the tour of your LYS. Sounds to me like you've been having a great time yippee. The blanket looks great and the jewellery is going to make such a beautiful present.

  6. Gosh, you have been busy. And how nice that your lys offers so many courses :)

  7. I am just so pleased for you to have found such a welcoming lys! I can imagine how much you love being there because I know how much I love hanging out in mine!
    Happy Spring and Cleaning and Mowing!

  8. Looks like a very fun and funky LYS. And good for you for getting things done. Things are usually so raucous at my LYS that I end up pulling out anything I tried to do :)
