About a week or two ago, this was all the worsted weight yarn I had left in the world. What a sad state of affairs this was. I worked hard to work down my stash and with this much left, there was not much left that I could make for a completed project. Well now I have the jackpot! I will not need to buy yarn again for a long time.
About two weeks ago I started to buy yarn on sale at various places. I kept going back to some of the discount stores and picking up colors that I liked here and there.
It all was taking shape nicely don't you think? But no... I could not get all the colors I wanted so I put in a big order for yarn on the internet.
That arrived yesterday... 9 glorious pounds of yarn to complete my color selection with! Oh, the ideas started to swim around in my head and I could not wait to compile this yarn with the other yarn so see the rainbow I had.
I heard lots of cars and noise out front early this morning... I thought "What is going on out there"? and I looked and it was a big garage sale at one of the neighbors houses. The entire house is a big garage sale as they are retiring and moving to Vegas. I saw someone come up the stairs with a big box claiming "I have 40 skeins of yarn here". and I RUSHED down the stairs only to find a room full of boxes of yarn. I came home with all of this for only $27! The acrylic yarn was only 50 cents a skein and the lambs wool was only $1 per skein!! SCORE!
I then gathered all of my new yarn together and put out on the back deck. I began to sort by reds, pinks, oranges, yellows, blues, greens, purples and on and on... It is a rainbow of yarn sitting together. The truth of the matter is... I don't even know how many skeins I have now.
There are so many colors to make so many wonderful things with as these are all brand new skeins of yarn, never touched. I have so many ideas dancing around in my head looking at this.
And last but not least, the sun came out and it is beautiful and warm and breezy. I was able to put our washing out this morning, meaning tonight is going to be a great night to climb into bed with fresh & crisp line dried sheets. I will be super happy smelling them and dreaming of all the things I can make with all that yarn.
I do not need to purchase any more yarn for a long time again, that is... until my basket ends up with the last of the yarn with not enough to make much of anything again... I suspect that will be a year or two from now :)
I am a very happy girl! xxxxxxxx
