|Look at that piggy!|
The yellow yarn I used was a little funny - too thin and shiny, which made the bulbs smaller than the others - but it was such a pretty color. (I got it label-less in a yarn swap.) I used all scraps of what I already had, so the colors weren't exactly what I would choose (I would've liked a blue and a brighter green), BUT I like it! I know the red was Red Heart, but besides that it was all Lion Brand. The purple was Vanna's Choice eggplant. The green was missing it's label, but I know it was a Vanna's Choice of some type. Oh, and the grey was Lion Brand's Wool-Ease. I used an F hook for the bulbs and an H for the chain.
Yay! I love it! Next, I would like to make some Christmas-colored scalloped bunting to go above the huge door frame between the living room and the sitting room. For that project, though, I will most likely go pick out the perfect colors instead of stash-busting. Have you started decorating yet? What are you planning on making this year? I'm so excited; we're getting our tree on Saturday. I can't wait to take out all of my favorite ornaments and put them in the perfect spots on the tree! Soon, soon, soon!
