I Had to Have It

I dropped in at the Yarn Barn on my way to a meeting last week. I wanted to pick up a bit more of the alpaca yarns I'm using in my "bushfire blanket". So, I picked up what I needed and paid for it. Then this caught my eye: It's a slubby linen yarn plied with several strands of blue cotton. I like it. It was on sale. I bought it. Fair enough . . .

. . . but I actually bought this much:
Ummmm . . . that's a lot of yarn. So, I now have one more cone of yarn adorning my shelves. I can't say I'm sorry, because I'm not. It will be great for texture in my weaving. I think I'll also try overdyeing some of it, since the white linen will take up colour differently from the blue cotton. And it looks good just sitting there anyway.

Love the colour, but don't feel bad about the amount - I usually buy yarn by the kilo!! Lol
