Update on Yarn Shopping Trip
I wanted to update you on my yarn shopping trip to Joann Fabrics yesterday. Talking about feeling like a kid in a candy shop! I was practically frothing at the mouth as I walked up and down five aisles that looked something like this...
|Oh my, the possibilities!|
The sole purpose of going to Joann's was to buy cotton yarn for an infinity scarf I'm designing for my mother to wear on her upcoming trip to Greece. After much looking, and putting yarn in our basket, then taking it out again, we finally settled on a large skein of Bernat's 100% cotton in a beautiful variegated called Smokey Wine. Complementing this is a skein of Sugar n Cream's Ecru.
|For an upcoming infinity scarf.|
I hadn't planned on buying anything for myself -- oh the willpower involved in this! -- until I stumbled across a small section of Redheart Boutique yarn. Oh my. The swirls of color...the luxurious softness of the yarn. In a heartbeat, I knew that I must have it. One skein, the last of it's colors, had no label and was unraveling before my eyes. No matter! It called my name, loud and clear.
I must, must, must finish the Scrapbuster afghan I'm working on for Baby S and the infinity scarf I'll be making for my mother. But as soon as I do, I can't wait to get my fingers on this:
In the meantime, join in on this week's Link-a-Long (rules above). We're having so much fun visiting one another's blogs! I'd love to have you play along. :)
