This weekend I went to a family reunion. Whilst there, I managed to kidnap my mother into driving me to a JoAnns where, lo! There was Wool-Ease at 2.49 a ball! I need my yarns to be machine washable as I have an elderly grandmother who sometimes takes it upon herself to do my laundry. Imagine your painstakingly knit sweater of 100% non-superwash wool getting tossed in with your jeans.
The mere thought makes me want to cry. Wool-Ease is both machine-washable, machine-dryable, and affordable for my student-sized budget.
I bought 19 balls of yarn which is about enough for 2 sweaters and maybe a hat. I bought all of their Forest Green and Oxford Gray and 3 balls of Wheat which has rayon threads spun in, I really like it.
But then what should I find when I return from a tiring weekend of outdoorsy campy fun? But a GIANT BAG on the landing. What’s in here, I wonder to myself as I casually peek in.
Yarn. There is a huge bag of yarn on my landing. I look around. Nobody else in this house even knows how to pick their nose with a needle, let alone knit something. Muhahahaha, mineminemine, allllll mine!
