Did Someone Say Yarn Sale?!?

So….Michael’s is having a yarn sale…..things got a little bit out of control. ๐Ÿ˜€

44 New Skeins of yarn for Tami!! Plus I got some wooden Cabone Rings and some little silver bells!! The bells are because I like them and I want to make a hip belt for belly dancing! The Cabone rings are for a halter top design that is wiggling around in my head right now and I want to make sure I’m ready for when it finds its way onto my hook!

All of my lovely squishy soft skeins are tucked away in my overflow plastic container. I can hear them all calling “Pick me! Pick me!”

I really only went in for the 2 skeins of Impeccable Maroon to finish a blanket for my sister-in-law and this happened.

Okay that’s not true – I knew this would happen. Teehee ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Ha! I keep thinking that I need to move to the UK! Your towns are so quaint, your yarn looks so much softer and fancier than what I get here. I absolutely am in love with the accents and vocabulary – yeah I’ve found myself exclaiming “Brilliant!” for no good reason. I’m also completely obsessed with the Great British Baking Show – I’ve watched all of the episodes on netflix 3 times already!!! LOL

      • Haha no the weather is always the same no matter what part of the UK you live in! I will say the countrysides are the best part. Do you get Stylecraft yarn? That’s one of my favourites it’s so soft even the chunky is all cuddly. British bake off is amazing haha its sad how something like baking a cake can be fun to watch, it’s about to change though another channel has bought the rights and all new hosts so not sure if I’ll watch it again lol

    • Yarn fumes! Ha I love it!! I did try knitting but geez those needles, I hate to admit it but I’m a little bit afraid of knitting needles. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just couldn’t find a groove with it. I have played around a little with Needle Tatting – nothing spectacular but it is almost hypnotic to watch someone tat. Though I suppose that can be said for crochet and knitting too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Holding the needles was very cumbersome to me too, I couldn’t juggle the two after spending a lifetime with just one hook. And the worst that could happen with a hook is maybe a nice bruise but I’m quite certain that I would puncture an important organ if I needed to answer the phone while knitting! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. My plastic yarn bin is pink and it is feeling (filling) kinda low. Sadly there is no Micheal’s in my local area. Just Walmart so every one in a while they have yarn on clearance. Also the thrift store I go to has not had any yarn the last two visits there. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • I was starting to panic actually because my overflow yarn bin was empty! I hope you can find your yarn fix soon!!! and I love walmart as a yarn source – the super walmart near me is usually very well stocked and their red heart prices are the cheapest. I wish I had some thrift stores near me! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. So this visit was like going to Costco, I see. You’re just going to grab a few things, which you already know isn’t true, and come out with more than just a few things. My son doesn’t believe me anymore that we’re just going in and out! LOL

    • Oh and then I hit up Hobby Lobby across the street from Michael’s. They didn’t have the one I was looking for either (add three more to my day’s haul). Guess what’s on the way home? Yep, JoAnns. Luckily, they did have it and I didn’t let myself look at anything else! Oh I lied, I almost bought a silicone chocolate mold, but restrained lol.

    • They just looked so lonely in the store! I usually only pick up a few skeins here and there. This madness is reserved for sales (plus I had a little extra cash!) ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. I think any crocheter (or knitter) totally gets this post! I’m a newbie (to crochet and blogging) and I’m wondering what are your favorite brands of yarn and what’s a good price for a skein?

    • Thanks for stopping by! I use mostly medium weight acrylic yarn. It is the least expensive and it’s very easy to care for – machine wash/dry. Red Heart is the brand I buy most – usually about $3 a skein. I also like Caron Simply Soft – about the same price but a softer drape and a nice shine. Caron Cakes are very popular too – self striping, lovely color combos in the skein but a few dollars more in price. With Bulky yarns I love Loops & Threads brand Charisma – it’s thick and soft. I always take advantage of sales at craft stores like Michaels. That’s when I stock up. ๐Ÿ˜€
