Must Buy Yarn
And especially sock yarn. Most assuredly, when there’s a 25% off sale at one of my favorite vendors, I definitely must buy yarn.
What’s Your Criteria For When You Must Buy Yarn?
For most of us, it doesn’t take much.
There’s a yarn sale. I’m at a yarn store. I need to start a new project and don’t have anything in my stash. Someone sends me an e-mail.
Yeah…it doesn’t take much.
But The Perfect Purl is having a 25% off Dragonfly Fibers yarn right now. No code. No secret password. The 25% is taken off automatically. However, they have quickly sold out of a lot of their Dragonfly Fibers stock (though, I think some of their nicer colors are still in stock).
Here’s what I got in my order.
Like I said, it doesn’t take much for me to place an order for yarn. But it also doesn’t take much for me to cast on a new project.
I am still loving my current project, the April Showers Shawl by Erica Fedor.
Each one of the “raindrops” in the shawl requires 5 treble crochets, 2 double crochets, 1 single crochet and 20 chains. Since I started with 59 raindrops, getting down to 46 per repeat has definitely made rows faster. I will definitely be making this shawl again in the future.
