Yarn Donation

Hi there! I hope you all are enjoying your day as much as I. It's hard to believe the weather is so gorgeous today considering we had terrible storms last night. The thunder and lightening was pretty intimidating! Even for an adult! It actually shook the house! The sun is out in full force now's a beautiful day...

In more ways then one...Do you guys remember when I told you about my cousin Amy, she was going back to work after being a stay at home mom for the past 10 yrs and she wouldn't have time for crochet so she was going to give me her stash...well, last night I finally picked it up! As I suspected there was TONS there...When I thought of adding it to my already huge stash I felt a bit guilty! Well, a lot guilty.

There is a nursing home/assisted living down the road from where she lives so when I left her house I stopped there and spoke to the activity's director. Sure enough, lots of their lady's in the assisted living section of the facility still knit and crochet so I donated half of it to them.

It was actually a little more then half..but you can see there was still plenty left over for me...I wish you could see these closer. There is two skeins of RHSS Coral..first I had seen this color and I'm loving it! It's the top row, center 5th and 6th one in from the right. She has a good bit of variegated yarns too. Pink, purple, greens and blues...

What will I do with all that white! Has anyone started anything new? Finished anything old??
I made a terrible mistake..not sure if that's the best way to describe it. I was suppose to do something and didn't...will explain that one later. I feel terrible though...

Hope everyone has a great day..xxxxx


  1. Wow! what a great haul. Your cousin is very nice to pass the yarn to you - and you're very nice to pass some yarn to the ladies at the assisted living home. Here's a ((hug)) for you. :)

  2. Forgot to mention - I clicked on the picture, and then clicked on it again, and it got real big - big enough for me to see real close. :)

  3. Just remember you feel terrible because you are a nice girl and you didn't mean to make a mistake, you'll be forgiven. Besides you did a really good thing today by donating yarn so that cancels it out.

    You've changed your blog layout! It looks great, very fresh and easier to read.

    The chart got emailed to me today (V excited!!!!) I'll forward it to you too so maybe we could do a crochet along together one day?!?? It's ok, only joking, I know you're not enjoying your Stars and Stripes blanket so you won't want to do a UJ. xxx

  4. ps. Do you really hang out your washing by colour and size? You are bonkers! xxx

  5. you can use the white for sashing of granny squares. you luck duck you!

  6. Thanks Debi! I'm so glad you found a way to see it close up. Hugs right back at yeah!

    Hey Cuckoo! So glad you got it, can't wait to see the finished product!lol a bit soon, I know. I'm glad you like the new look, I need to make up my mind, I change it all the time now.

    Great idea Niki!

    Thank you all for taking the time to comment. IT really does make my day!

    p.s. yes cuckoo, my wash gets hung by size, color, and type. I know, it's a sickness. I can't control it! lol I'll have to show you a picture, if you really want to see..:) type..i
