Case in point.
I'm working on a charity blanket and amazingly enough I had no soft acrylic to add to it (none that would really match anyway). So I ran into JoAnn's to get a skein of red.
However they were having a clearance sale on yarn that I can use for hats and kitty blankets and maybe even a blanket for us!
This is what I came home with.
More than I bargained on but its really pretty
and I have something in mind for all of it.
That was a week ago. I cast on for a blanket for us and I started thinking that even though I'm using the bulky yarn, there's not much in that skein. Maybe I need to try another JoAnn's to see if I can get more of it.
After school shopping yesterday I stopped into another JoAnn's to look around. The yarn that was on clearance that I wanted for my blanket was NOT on clearance at this JoAnn's!!! UGH! It's also normally $8 a skein for not that much yarn. However they DID have yarn on clearance that was NOT on clearance at the other JoAnn's. I came home with this.
Yarn for hats for both Baby Girl and #1 Son, and sock yarn. Cuz everybody knows sock yarn doesn't count as stash, ESP when you get it on clearance. I showed great restrain as well because there was a LOT more I could have gotten.
If I gotta work, I gotta keep me in fiberly goodness.
