Gratitude for Today: Yarn Love
I love yarn! I love the colors. I love the textures. I love the things I can make with it. If you have someone in your life who loves to crochet or knit, then you know we are always yearning for more yarn. We can never have too much. Yarn should be posted on the list of addictive substances. I started with the cheap stuff, Red Heart. From there I moved to Vanna, then on to Encore. Now I'm buying Madeline Tosh and Malabrigo. As the yarn becomes more luxurious, the price escalates. But to a yarnaholic, it is worth it. The better yarns are so nice to touch and work with, and the colors are gorgeous.
I am so grateful for beautiful yarn, and the things I am learning to make with it. For the past four months I have been taking a crochet class to make a sampler crocheted afghan. Every two weeks we learn a new pattern, which we use to make two more squares. These are just some of my squares. By the way, this yarn is an acrylic called Uptown Worsted. It is incredibly soft, and I love the bold colors.
