Oh oh… I think my yarn stash is about to expand.

Oh no! I think I could be in trouble soon. One of my favourite yarns has added some new variations! Dare I go out to my local store to see if we have them?

I was (see I said was..I’ve already purchased them in my head) … I was trying to not expand my yarn stash. I was trying to not buy yarn without a specific project in mind.

But have you tried the Caron Cakes? I love the texture and colours. I’m sure I’ll love the new variations. And OMG isn’t the Cupcake cute?!?!

Now I just have to figure out where I’m going to put these beauties!

My daughter does leave for university soon. She won’t notice if I start transforming her room into my crafting room… right?

Wooly Wednesday – Bright Yellow & Blue

Every piece of yarn art starts with the yarn aisle. When you have a project in mind it doesn’t start until you find the right texture; the right colour; the perfect shade.

Often we fall in love with the yarn and then find a project to celebrate the yarn! 😉

Part of my Wooly Wednesday series. Celebrating yarn from my stash. Soon I’ll be adding photos from my wish list. I’ll soon have a semi-regular blog post and a new Pinterest board<3

Focus on the end bits (WordPress Photo Challenge)

Snipping the end bits from a yarn project is the longest part of a project. You can see the finish line but you’re oh-so-far from it.

My Rainbow /Sherbert Blanket was one of my favourites, for many reasons, but mostly for the bright colours of the yarn. Even the bits that were snipped off and left in a pile were pretty.

When I placed a glass cup coaster on top of one pile it caught my imagination. I do like how it’s out-of-focus, kind of dreamy, I can imagine what they yarn can turn into.

That’s my favourite thing about yarn…. the possibilities. A few balls of yarn and a spark of imagination and you could create anything!
