I am always afraid that I am going to lose my yarn needles. One of them (my favorite one) I have had for over 30 years. I got an idea to make a small pincushion to hold my yarn needles. It was an easy project done in sc rounds. I added a couple of sl st rounds to embellish, then stuffed with poly-fiberfill
Then I got another bright idea to make a pillow using the same sc rounds only bigger. I added a floral motif and a button.
My stash of yarn is very low to none existent. So, we took a trip to Michael’s so I could buy some yarn. Money being as tight as it is, I was reluctant to spend on yarn. But, Michael’s was having a sale on the yarn that I like. When I got there, the color selections were limited. Therefore, I ended up buying Caron Simply Soft yarn.
Years and years ago I swore that I wouldn’t buy Caron Simply Soft again. And, what did I do? I bought too many skeins of Caron Simply Soft yarn.
Now, what am I going to do with this yarn I don’t like?
I scanned through all of my patterns and decided on a shawl. Although the material for this shawl calls for crochet thread, I am using the Caron’s yarn since it is so “simply soft” it should drape just fine.
This is the WIP (Work In Progress) of the shawl.
This pattern comes from the book “Total Crochet Fashions”
The pattern is fraught with errors. Either that, or I am just stupid. I have come to the point to where I am doing it the way I think the pattern is intended to be written. The shawl is half-way finished.
Today I did a few more rows and I am afraid that I am going to run out of the green.
Do I have to buy another skein! I hope not.
After this shawl is finished, I will more than likely put it away and fuhgeddaboudit.
