Who Needs Drugs? That’s the question for the day. Who needs drugs when you have yarn shopping!! I have always heard that when the going gets tough the tough go shopping. Works for me. Had to go to a place I have never been before, to see a doc I’ve never seen before and I had to be there at a certain time, and I had to go early in the morning. Just a little stress to start my day. As I was turning left to go into the doc’s office I noticed a nice big Michael’s store right across the street! Bet you can’t guess where I headed as soon as I got out of the doc’s office and drove out of the parking lot. Did you say “Michaels”, well you are right! Of course, on my way home I just happened to pass by the A.C. Moore store and my car just automatically pulled into that parking lot. There’s nothing wrong with my legs and they walked me right into that store. I tried to fight it, I really did (“yeah, sure” you say). Oh well, I do- not -feel guilty. Here’s a pic of my yarn (drug substitute) goodness
These are a few yarns that I have heard about, but haven’t seen before.
- Top yarn is Red Heart Eco-Cotton Blend (75% recycled cotton – 25% acrylic) – worsted
- Next yarn is Red Heart Heart & Sole with Aloe (70% Superwash Wool – 30% Nylon) – fingering
- Left yarn is Paton Stretch Socks (41% cotton-39% wool-13% nylon- 7% elastic) – fingering
- Right yarn is Patons Kroy Socks (75% washable wool – 25% nylon) – fingering
A.C. Moore had the best prices and the best selection, they carried all of the above yarns. Michaels only carried the Red Heart Heart & Sole. I am not much of a sock maker yet, so only bought 1 skein of the fingering weight, you would need two to make a pair of socks. I really enjoy fingerless gloves, so this yarn will work fine for that.
