Because I mentioned that I was going to crochet some Christmas blankets for the foster kids, the charity group set aside lots of Christmasy yarns for me when they divvied up a Big Donation of Yarn. Thanks!
More Christmas yarn means more Christmas blankets for the kids!
I know they’ll especially appreciate the soft sheen of all this white Red Heart Sparkling yarn. I’ve never seen this particular brand before; Ravelry says it’s discontinued. I suppose it’s the 40% nylon content that makes it sparkle like snow. Not very soft, but the sparkle is quite pretty!
As if all that Christmas yarn wasn’t enough,
also held all this.
Altogether I was given over nine pounds of yarn!
Hidden among the skeins I found this receipt from Knitters World.
Did you notice the date? 02/04/89.
1989!! That’s twenty-four years ago!
Thank you, Anonymous Yarn Fairy. The kids and I really appreciate that you hung onto your stash for this long and decided to pass it on to us.
