Shopping and new challenges

No, I still haven't blocked the shawl, though I had cleaned up the room for it(it of course is messy again).
But finally the weather was good enough to go to a fleamarket again on sunday. It has been weeks(!) since my last, cause every single sunday was rainy!!!
I only brought a bag full of fabric for 2€. Actually I only wanted the printed one you can see on top, but when the seller said 2€ for the whole bag, I of course brought it.

Then I got some yarn from Ebay. It's the same yarn that I used for the turqoise shawl, since I didn't knew how much I needed...

And todays shopping pic. Two knitting magazines including the new Rebecca. I'm thinking about knitting Modell number 41 or 5(maybe withe the turqois yarn?). You can also see 5 magnetic snaps for future bag-making, so I don't get short of them and have to drive 45min in order to finish a bag.
And a 1.5mm crochet hook. Yes, you read right 1.5mm. Scroll down to see what for.

I talked my mum into buying some crochet threads and magazines at the above mentioned fleamarket since she wanted to try that out for a long time. Guess who tested a pattern?

Unfortunately not enough yarn to make this piece, but with the 1.5mm hook and the white thread I will give this a try:


And here's a pic of a scarf I just started. It will be a birthday gift for a friend of mine. It's done in GGH Safari.


P.S.: I'm also taking part in the new craftster challenge. Here's my entry.

I love the fabric you bought, especially the top one. But missis, why you put yourself down as a adv.beginner/intermediate on your questionnaire!!! You are sooooo at least intermediate if not beyond. The scarf looks like it will be a beautiful piece of work and your Kiri shawl is looking perfecto....love YOUR Knitty SP5
