I bought some of this yarn last night, but I’m not gonna tell you what I’m making with it!

Oooh, but I can’t wait until the package gets here.  Doesn’t that look just lovely to work with?

I turned the bathtub turquoise when I was tie-dyeing.  I kinda wish it would stay that way, but S said it was washing off when she was in the shower just now.  Since we don’t own this house, I guess that’s for the best.  Still, turquoise is pretty!

One of my contacts on Ravelry, Janro, is a master of freeform crochet, also known as scrumbling.  Recently, I was admiring one of her projects, a travel case decorated in many shades of pink.  I commented to her how much I liked the case and she responded by encouraging me to make one, too.

Here is Janro’s pink travel case:

Janro said that all you have to do is find a suitable case at a thrift store or a yardsale or something, and then go happy with the crochet hook.  I do love to play with yarn!

Yesterday, fate was with me.  I found this lovely little round suitcase for $2 at the Sisterhood of Rutland Jewish Center Annual Fall Rummage Sale.  (I am typing out the entire title of the rummage sale because it sounds so elegant–“sisterhood,” “annual,” etc.)

I think I’ll start by using the little blob I crocheted while I was sitting in one of the Adirondack chairs outside the library waiting for S to pick me up.  It’s a pretty color of blue/green wool, which I think would go nicely with the blue/gray of the suitcase.
