This past weekend my husband and I went to the botanical gardens. It was a little cool, but it was wonderful to see all the flowers in bloom! Tulips, daffodils, pansies dominated the scene.
In the Japanese Garden! I’m wearing my mustard colored crocheted slouchy hat, which I absolutely love. My go-to pattern for slouchy hats. So comfortable and warm!
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.
