I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE getting new yarn. Planning a project, carefully considering the possible materials, making my final selections, and bringing them home never ceases to entertain me. I have spent countless hours in the yarn aisles of my favorite crafting stores, even if I don’t have a particular project in mind, gazing and dreaming up the possibilities.
You can imagine my supreme delight, then, that a recent influx of orders for my Pink Ribbon Neckwarmer, plans for a new line of Olympic-themed knitwear for my shop, and preparations for a local art auction have resulted in what I’m referring to as a “yarn boom” here at home. Allow me to show you…
Oooooooooo, would you look at all that loveliness? It makes me happy just to look at it. All the possibilities, the future projects! Yes indeed, I am one blessed crafting-girl, to have such a pretty yarn stash to create with <3
How about one more look-see? Nice and close 🙂
See the two big skeins on the left? They are a yarn I’ve never tried before, Homespun Thick and Quick from Lion brand. Chunky yarns are my absolute favorite, so I’m really excited to give them a try. I’ll let you know what I come up with 😉
What about you, dears? What are your favorite kinds of yarn, or other crafting materials?
