Labor Day Haul

Time is getting away from me again. How is it Thursday? I took advantage of the sales over the weekend, and got (I think) all the acrylic yarn I need for various projects from JoAnns and Michaels. That’s just Red Heart stuff though, so I won’t bother to take pics of that. Although while there I DID wish I had a smart phone (oh smart phone, how I miss you T.T) and all my acrylic yarn in my Ravelry Stash, so that I could see how much of each color I actually had, if I had the right shades etc. #FirstWorldProblems

I could not find the right shades of green and purple… at least not for a price I was willing to pay then. (There WAS some stuff At Spinnin Yarns that I may consider buying at some later time.) This is what I did find (At JoAnns)…

Daily Dose

And my brother got some grey sock yarn from there that he wants me to make him some socks with.

I got a wonderful haul from Spinnin Yarns, but I think I handed the receipt to my brother. This was about $40 though, which was a great deal. This was all on sale and then the owner took an additional .50 off each as a bonus for us braving the weather. It was raining but we (my brother, the 2 youngest kids, and I) went to the festival and walked to the yarn store anyway, lol.

That night Chance saw me winding one of the Ultra Alpaca Fine and asked if he could help. I said “Sure, hold your arms like this…” and put it on his arms. After about 2 seconds he got bored of that, and dumped it into a pile on the floor, immediately tangling it beyond belief. Sigh.

The grey my brother picked out, for me to make him a hat that matches his socks. Even though it is a sparkly grey. There were plenty of other, non-sparkly colors on sale to choose instead, but he wanted that sparkly grey. >.>
