Photos!! Photos!!

Finally, the photos are here!

Remeber I told you that last Saturday we bought some things? Well, here they are:

The baskets for the books. Like I said before, it doesn't have to be pretty, just a designated place for the books that were in the living room. Now when the kids want to "read" one, they go there, take one, and after they're done with it they put the book where it belongs.

The new yarn. Aren't these beautiful?

I think that they can be used both in crochet and knitting. I still have to buy the proper hooks for crochet, and mom said she will give me her knitting needles. I don't know how to knit, but I already have 3 possible teachers: my mom, my grandmom and my MIL. They are all willing to teach me. You know, my grandmom used to crochet and knit a lot. When me and hubby got married she offered us a bedspread that she crocheted. It's beautiful! So when she asked me to show her the pot holders, I did:

They're not perfect, I know that. Just remeber that I don't crochet for a long time AND I was doing this without a tutorial. (I can't tell you how many times I had to UNDO the circular one!)

Anyway, this is what I wanted to show you!
