Recently, I received a great windfall of yarn. A church in the area had been given excess yarn from some ladies who made blankets and things as a ministry. Since no one really wanted the yarn (or knew what to do with it), I ended up with all of it! Woohoo! Of course, I had to take some pictures to convince myself that it was not all just a pleasant dream!
The first haul was about 65 skeins of yarn (some partially used, but most were intact) and 18 balls of colorful cotton thread for crochet.
Of course, I was ecstatic, and only took some of the yarn at first, leaving a good deal for anyone else who might wish to find a home for all those lovely fibers. Later in the week, I learned that the yarn had been sitting there for some time, and that they really wanted to get rid of it. I was only so glad to oblige. No arm-twisting required. So I cam home with another boatload of yarn. I won’t be needing to buy yarn for a while. I love the variety of colors, but it makes it hard to do one single project since you need so much of the same color for normal projects.
Before I began any projects, though, I had to find a place for all that yarn in my craft/laundry room. Remember that hutch that I repainted last year? Perfect hiding place for all those lovely yarns! Sigh. I love it when a plan comes together!
So now that my fibers have a snug little home, I am beginning to put them to use. Stay tuned for updates on all my upcoming projects!
