Oops, I did it again

I succumed to my desires, for more yarn that is. I just placed my order over at knitpicks. I think I put more thought into this though before I made my purchase(at least money wise, not so much color wise). I went to the big box store last Sunday and controlled myself. I really do not like their selection of yarns as most of it is acrylics and I hate acrylics. But they do have the Lion Brand cotton ease that is 50 percent cotton and I have used that for past projects and liked it. However the price of same went up to 5.49 a skein and I figured I could ind more natural yarn online. And of course I did over at Knitpicks.
For some reason I have felt the need recently to begin a new crochet project. I either want to make another ripple blanket and this time in crochet instead of knitting or the babette blanket that is all the rage over on Ravelry. My mom is turning 60 this coming November and I think I should make her something, but I know if I make the babette I will want to keep it for myself. So I placed a order for several colors over there, 21 in fact. Hey at 3 something a skein in washable wool, I think that is a bargain. Now I just have to wait for it to arrive so I can play with all those colors and decide which project to begin.

Keep on crafting everyone!

I still need to make me one of those ripple blankets. I like the Babbette also, too bad I don't crochet.
