A moment of weakness…

Standard

I met a friend today at a cafe for tea and an arm knitting lesson. We spent a pleasant couple of hours and she left with a completed scarf. She gave me some yarn as a Thank-you gift – the two green skeins in the photos below.

I received it with gratitude even though it’s partly wool. It’s Loops and Threads Cozy Wool. I expect I will make a gift with it sometime.

Then I went to Michaels with a 50% off coupon burning a hole in my purse. Also the flyer had mentioned that certain yarns were discounted this week, so I ended up with two skeins of Zoomba in pink and purple for another arm knitted cowl, two skeins of Red Heart Unforgettable in Dragonfly and two more in Sunrise. I’ve been meaning to try the Unforgettable for ages.

Before I use these, though, I must finish the Marble Chunky vest. And when I was doing my housework this morning, I was reminded that I was going to crochet cushion covers for the dining chairs, so I probably should get to that soon too.

And I need to make some bags out of these batiks that I bought at the fabric store (on my day off). We love batiks.

  1. Yes, they are nice to have, though I don’t like to have too many! I am not a stasher though I do seem to have acquired a small stash. I like having a few options on hand for last minute gifts or creative ideas that always pop up when the shops are shut.
