So, how much have you spent at one time at Jo-Ann or Michael’s? My new record is $62. Honestly, I don’t know how it added up to that much, but I got quite a haul. They were having a sale on Moda Dea Cartwheel which is 100% wool, and a nice grey color, so I bought the lot:
Recently I’ve started two curtain projects – I need curtains for my kitchen and bathroom (which will end up being 4 total, I think). Whenever I get a Michael’s coupon I buy Bernat Cottontots, my favorite cotton yarn. Here’s curtain number one, for the bathroom, so far:
So while I was at Jo-Ann I noticed they were having a big sale on Sugar and Cream, which I usually hate to knit with, but DL is addicted to camoflauge and Army- or military themes (I never thought I’d be happy he has epilepsy but it should keep him from enlisting/being drafted when he’s old enough and since I have 3 boys I think about that a lot.) and I found this Sugar and Cream I think he’ll like being made into new curtains for his room:
And just to satisfy those yarn-elitists out there, you know knitting at a LYS is a bad idea, right? Well last month Yarn, Paper, Scissors was having a sale on cotton yarn, so I picked up this really interesting looking Tahki Jeans:
and some gorgeous green Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton:
And now I feel guilty, because I had been so good stashbusting lately! I mailed my friend 14 hats total, and I have one more to decide what to do with. Here’s one of my Sideways Hat masterpieces:
And a great hat from Knit Hats! (I think?!) which again ended up being WAY too big for a baby under 1, right?:
You have to tack the picot edge over at the end, but it is pretty, and such a good use of many, many taupe, ecru, tan, whatever yarn leftovers.
P.S. Don’t tell the Yarn Police – I also made a huge Webs order this week – shhhhh….
P.P.S. The good news is that so far I’ve received 2 emails from Webs that some of the yarn I ordered is out of stock, so my order gets smaller every day …
