Yarn Haul

During the COVID-19 isolation period, I spent a lot of time crocheting – I completed one afghan and have almost completed the second. Yesterday my cousin offered to take me to Michaels and do some yarn shopping and I jumped at the chance as I have a couple of projects in mind that I would love to get started on.

Some people may think I am crazy – I came out of the store carrying 34 balls of yarn! But from my perspective I know that I have saved myself a few trips to the craft store. These balls will get me started on my projects even though I know I may need to go back if I haven’t bought enough.

I love the colour combinations I have chosen both for my own blanket and the one I will be crocheting for my cousin.

I have stored the yarn in the box I keep under my bed for that purpose. I look forward to picking up my crochet hook once the heat wave has broken and I am able to get creative once again.

Do you enjoy shopping at a craft store?

  1. Crocheting is on my list of things to learn one day, Colline. I went to the baking store recently and restocked up as I used a lot during the lockdown and wasn’t able to replace anything then. It feels like cursed myself as I haven’t had a chance to do any fondant artwork since.


  2. I spent a lot of time crocheting too! I had to laugh because my stash is such that I could have spent a few more months at home and STILL had enough yarn! Yet that did not stop me when my sister took me to Michaels. I can always add one more project to the list. Just like there’s always room for one more book on the ‘to read’ list.


  3. I can’t wait to see what this turns out to be! I can’t seem to stop knitting sweaters long enough to make a blanket 🧢

  4. I began to crochet when in high school. I’m currently working on a king size blanket and a Christmas tree. I go between Walmart, JoAnn’s and Michael’s for my yarn although I have a lot of the yarn needed for my projects.
