This week’s crafty goodness inspiration comes from Mermaids!

There are so many clever ideas for craft projects to try.

The Amigurumi Mermaid dolls are gorgeous and the mermaid tail snuggle blanket would be lovely to curl up in on the couch.


On My Needles

This week I went to the local yarn store near where I am living in Romania.

Only to find the store no longer sold yarn! It’s now a second-hand clothing store. I was very disappointed 🙁

Since I’m traveling, a sweater project isn’t practical. Our family travels light.

Socks came to my mind. I’ve always wanted to knit a pair of socks and they won’t take up too much room 🙂

I did some more research and found a Yarn Store about 4 hours away and it sold products online!

I got in touch with Irika Knit Happens via their Facebook page. The owner, Irina, quickly responded and was very friendly!

She had some suggestions on yarn and knitting needles I could use.

I’ll be following an online course I’m taking on Craftsy – Knit Socks Two At A Time by Kate Atherley.

The pattern requires worsted weight yarn and circular needles with a long cable so you can use the Magic Loop method.

I ended up ordering Elb Sox Yarn by GGH Yarns in the Fushcia red colorway, 4mm short Prym wooden interchangeable needle tips and a 120cm cable.

Irina was very helpful and I was glad to support a local yarn store.

I received my package this morning!
