You are Not Going to Believe it ....

but I actually purchased this today:

That's right.... it's a CROCHET PROJECT!! Can you believe it????? I found this at Hancock Fabrics today... they had a great sale going on, plus I had a coupon for 10% off my entire purchase, so this was marked $24.99 and I got it for around $15!
I love kits like this, and they are so hard to find locally. Mr. S.'s niece is expecting a baby boy in January, so I knew I had to make her something and couldn't quite decide what I wanted to do. When I saw this, I knew it was perfect.

It comes with everything you need to make a blanket, sweater, booties and a hat .... yarn, patterns, crochet hook, even the buttons for the sweater ... for $15 you can't go wrong. They had it in shades of pink for baby girls too.

I've never attempted a sweater before, so I hope I can figure it out. The blanket looks like it will be quite easy, as will the hat and booties.  I can't wait to get started.  Now all I gotta figure out is how to work on it without the kittens seeing me... ha ha!


  1. That's quite a good load of yarn for $15.00!!!

  2. My goodness that is a bargain... Happy crocheting :))

  3. Wow, that's great find! Will be a lovely gift this will be.

  4. Sandy, if you run into any problems give me a yell. I am here most of the time and maybe I can help you out. I like the looks of your blog, I have been looking for mine so I can change it......but I like mine!

  5. Wow, that is a great find! I would have snatched it up too...perfect for a little boy! I'm happy for you. It's always nice to find a bargain when bucks are hard to come by.

    Enjoy your Sunday :-)

  6. This is a great bargain as I bought this from TJMaxx for $12!!! I made the sweater and the blanket for my sister in law's baby, and they loved it!! It has 20 balls of yarn, pattern, hook, needle and 2 buttons. I managed to save some yarn too!!
