This past Friday was ridiculously crazy, in that way where things that can go wrong, will.
So I decided to relax by going to my local Michaels.
Cotton yarn was on sale, and I’ve [still] been on a dish cloth kick, and I’ve also had some requests for them. I also picked up some other supplies for projects to decorate our place! More pictures to come when I finish those.
One thing I’ve recently learned about myself is I like to shop for yarn when I’m stressed.
Red Heart Soft was on sale at Michaels, so I picked up some skeins of that. I also saw that lovely Red Heart Boutique purple yarn, I figured I could make a scarf out of that. A bit pricy normally, but armed with coupons it wasn’t so bad! And I’ve been on a dish cloth kick so I got another Lily Sugar ‘n Cream.
I specifically wanted to get orange yarn so I could make this little guy I dreamed up.
An amigurumi orange fruit! I made him to be the mascot of a Vitamin C and kids project I’m working on for my Nutrition Lifecycle project. The leaf pattern was found at Easy Makes Me Happy.
So I thought I’d start out with presenting my yarn stash!
I know it’s relatively small compared to some stashes I’ve seen on the internet, but it still makes me happy. It was a bit less messy before I started some new projects, one of which is a green dish towel on the bottom there.
One reason I like having a stash is that, even though I have a bunch of ideas for projects, whenever I finish with one I can just grab the yarn I need for whatever strikes me.
