I got so lucky yesterday! After much work I finally found a shop in Vizag which sells the thicker gauged thread. YAY! So I raided it and came home with the following goodies. The damages were around Rs 800…never spent so much in one day before.

Rita Weiss Ed. Pineapple Crochet Designs

Indian book of crochet patterns-cheap (please ignore the spelling…)!

Creamy Anchor thread in size 40…20 g balls

Red Heart in grey and white…100 g balls!

Two balls each of yellow, maroon, variegated and light tan in Anchor size 20…20 g balls

But what excites me most is this: The shop had something called “Knitting cotton” from Anchor, which I think will be good for making myself clothing items….I can’t wait, and will soon go hunting for pattern…YUM! Only 28 shades available, but that’s a good beginning.
