Arrived home from errands to see a box from Jo-Anne's by my door. The back story is that I mentioned how much I had always wanted to have a rainbow of crafting yarn so that when I saw a pattern for a cool toy, or tawashi, or whatever, I would have all the basic colors on hand. Being wonderfully indulgent, DH pointed out that such a collection of yarn wouldn't exactly break the bank and that I should just go ahead and do it. (I know, he is a keeper!) As luck would have it Jo-Anne Fabrics had Red Heart Super Savers on sale so I was able to get the big skeins (364 yards) in each color and stay in budget. Placing that order made me a super happy girl!
Here is the grand unveiling, shown step by step so as to extend the thrill for all you dear readers.
Open up the box...
Line them up and let the baby roll in them which is just what I would have done were size not a limitation.
Life is good. I have some plans for toys, mainly knit/crocheted food, that I am going to try out so I will post directions for those if I get them figured out.
