Check out this snippet that I cut from an ad for a brightly striped summer nightshirt.
Let’s see if I can remember where all of the other yarns came from. . .
I got two skeins of the Bright Orange at Savers last spring for $1.60, not a fantastic price for eight ounces of acrylic, but I love the intense color of this Panda brand yarn!!
Two variegated skeins for $2.00 and Gobs of sewing thread for $4.80 (All prices are after my 20% over 55 discount). Yay! It’s fun to finally celebrate that thrifty little find with you, only one year late. lol.
The skeins of ‘Medium Peony’ and ‘Medium Jade’ Windrush arrived much more recently through From the Heart, the local charity that delivers my blankets to DCF.
Why has it hung around for so long? Because next to many colors, especially pastel ones, this white looks rather dingy with an odd grey tinge. But that’s not a problem with very bright colors, like those in today’s ripple!
That leaves two, a skein of turquoise Sayelle and an unlabeled hot pink, as yarns of unmemorable origin.
But I got 5 out of 7, not too too bad – proof that my memory isn’t yet completely shot, right!? Hopefully this will comfort me the next time that I’m in a grocery store and realize that I’ve left my list, reusable bags, coupons, or some other thing that I needed, either out in my car or, far worse, at home. Of course, that’s assuming I‘ll even remember today’s memory test. lol.
