More yarn

| 1 Comment

lionbrandwooleasethickquickclaret.jpg Yes, I've bought more - and then even more - yarn in the last few weeks, including an initial 10 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Claret for Greg and Lauren's thick two-person lap blanket. Yikes! At full price (unusual for me!) of $5.99 each! Since there's only 1 skein left and over 1/3 more to crochet, I bought 5 more skeins (at full price of course) on the way home from work today.

[sarcasm] I need to invest in stock of yarn manufacturers. [/sarcasm]

Bill said they'll probably end up living in San Diego and won't need a thick (and heavy!) blanket! Ha, ha!

So, I'm hurrying up so I can send it to them while it's still cold there - before it starts getting warm in Virginia!

The other yarn I bought is Red Heart Super Saver (on sale at Jo-Ann Fabrics) which I use mostly for the donated blankets I make, and 2 different types of baby yarn for 2 "boy blankets".

I just made a bear out of that claret and I really like the richness of the color.
