This Blog has moved.... to Egypt.

Sorry I haven't written in a long time... I've kind of been busy... what with Christmas and moving to Cairo, Egypt.

I'm here safe and sound and while I question my judgement sometimes. I'm here for the next year and a half.

I've been using up my quickly disappearing stash to make a few things for around the house to make it feel more like home. I made a hanging dish towel, some coasters and a couple of crocheted baskets.

Just when my yarn was almost at it's end I found a local shop.  It is called Dentelle and it is located on the ground floor of the Maadi Grand Mall for anyone who might be in the neighborhood.

I managed to pick up some local acrylic, a bit of novelty yarn, a skein of wool, and a little bit of cotton. The only problem with the cotton is that it is so fine that I don't think I'll be able to use it for much.

I guess until I find another source for cotton yarn my little creatures will have to be made of wool or acrylic.  Here are my first two creatures made in my new home.
