DH brought a box in from the front porch when he came home from work the other day. Our tricky mailman managed to slip another one by me!
Sandi of MD tells me that her yarn fairies have been working overtime again, so she sent me some of her extras. She apologized, saying it’s “mostly scraps”. I bet not!
Lots of neutral colors in the top layer,
plus partial skeins of RHSS “Monet” and ‘Turquoise’,
– Funny, we just did the math for D’s shawl and found that we’re a tad short on ‘Monet’! –
and there’s one skein of Bernat Satin, ‘Denim Mist Heather’, which I may combine with what remains of the Satin that Melissa of GA sent me last December.
Second layer –
Oooooh, I see some dishcloth/washcloth cotton. . . eleven balls of it! – mostly Sugar ‘n Cream.
Can’t wait to share this with D, who’s just about to start another cloth.
And here’s a second note. . .
” Thought you could include these cute little purses in with your lovely afghans for foster kids ” – Five cute little purses that are going to make some little foster girls very happy! –
And yes, I already asked Sandi if she knew the pattern’s name. – Depending on what LA, who passes my blankets on to DCF, has to say, maybe I’ll crochet a few more cute little purses. After all, I do have a plentiful supply of cotton yarn.
There are also a few variegated yarns,
including some Impeccable, in the same colorway as the skeins Karen of Virginia sent me last month, ‘Folklore’!
Still more goodies to come! Third layer –
A huge Ziploc of scrap balls.
Must let them out to breathe!
Some of them coordinate quite well with the TLC Essentials ‘Persimmon’ and RH Classic ‘Teal’.
Yet another note!
“Maybe you can make DH a snazzy new pair of socks.”
Oh. My. Can you imagine DH wearing pink and red, glittery, or pink and purple socks?!?! lol. Sandi, I hope you won’t mind if I make myself a few pairs of snazzy fingerless mitts instead.
The red is Loops N’ Threads luxury sock yarn, colorway ‘Spring Fling’, while the one above, with silver sparkles, is Fortissima Colori Disco Socka Color by Scholler + Stahl – My, that’s a mouthful! lol. –
I know the Pop’n Yarn name, but I don’t recognize any of these other yarns.
Although the rose heather does remind me of a wool blend I once used. Think I’ll do a burn test on it, just to be sure of the fiber content.
Here’s a ripple “kit”. . .
RHSS ‘Woodsy’ along with Bernat Aspen Soft in a frosty green,
plus some browns
and a few other neutrals, from layer one.
Yes! That will make a very manly ripple.
How thoughtful of Sandi to send these nifty little containers, for my Perler beads.
Well, my beads are already in little plastic thingies I found at Dollar Tree. But given some time to think, I’m sure that I’ll come up with the perfect use for these. –
And a drum roll please. . .
This is what ten-and-a-half pounds of yarny goodness look like. Woo-Whooo!!
And here it is, packed back into the box, ready for its’ trip to the attic.
It’s been such fun to go through my newest box of treasures with you, my dear readers, peeking over my shoulder. I look forward to showing you what I do with it all!
And thank you, Sandi, very much, for sharing your bounty – with me, the foster kids, and the Crochet Corner ladies.
