*yarngasm* My beautiful new merino yarn

Meet the newest addition to my yarn stash! Although I must admit, she gets pride of place in her own special box because she is a tinsy winsy bit more pricey than what I usually buy. Yes, it is a she! You are looking at $35 worth of hand spun, hand dyed, custom coloured merino yarn I had custom made recently. I've been excitedly waiting on her arrival and woke this morning to a pleasant surprise on my doorstep. 

Now that I have it, I'm too scared to use it. I'm going to have to really think up something special for this one! Being in Christmas colours, I had originally planned on creating a Christmas themed crochet newborn prop or two but as the yarn was so pricey, I'm unsure if there will be many people interested in paying for a little hat priced around the $40 mark, but we'll see. This is my first time using 'real' yarn made from merino and I am thinking I may need to buy more and that this may become a very expensive (but WORTH IT) addiction. And of course, it doesn't have to be custom made every time. There are cheaper options pre-made in other textures and colours. I'm going to need to have a shop, and a play, around and see what I can do.

Hmmmmm, an interesting new endeavor for your friendly neighbourhood crazy crochet lady!

Isn't she just B-E-A-utiful! 

How I got back in control of my anxiety

Has anyone else found the past week or so especially more stressful and difficult emotionally and stress-level wise than normal? I certainly...
