I took my daughters recently to visit Barakat Showroom in Salmiya for the first time. I love to crochet, though I haven’t practiced in a while, and wanted to get some new yarns. If you aren’t familiar with Barakat, it’s located in Salmiya in the same shopping complex as King of Glass.
Barakat is a craft store that carries fabric, beading, ribbons, art supplies and paints, Swarovski crystals and lots of other fun crafty stuff. They also devote an entire section to yarns, hooks, crochet and knitting books (including many in French) and patterns. Its a great place for #Kuwait #Moms who are into crochet or knitting and a fun place to take the kids to introduce them to the ideas of crafts, knitting and crochet.
I bought eight skeins and have started working on my first granny square blanket. I’ve done six squares so far, and though I’m following the same pattern/stitch, none of them have turned out exactly right (and none are the same size!!). But I’m not giving up.
Barakat’s winter collection of yarns is now in and I’m planning to visit again next week to see what the new colors look like and which ones I can add to my blanket. Has anyone been recently and if yes, what are you working on?
