I've been reading this thread every once in a while but I don't think I've actually made a post in a while. I managed to get all of my fabric stash organized into one of those wire cube thingies. Now I can see all of it at once so hopefully I'll be de-stashing from that soon.
I was really bad today... I went to Hobby Lobby just to look at yarn and I found 7 skeins of Vanna's Choice Baby in Berrylicious for only $1.21 a skein (regular $3.29). Not only that but I also found 6 skeins of the same yarn in Bluebell for the same price. I looked up and there were 8 more skeins of the blue color but they weren't marked but they gave them to me for the $1.21 anyway because they weren't going to carry them anymore. So I got 21 skeins of yarn for a little under $30. I just couldn't pass up a deal like that! BUT I have been wanting to make this one afghan I've seen in one of my crochet books so I do have a plan for the yarn! I have just enough for it and all the skeins are the same dye lot! YAY!
I was hoping to finish all my GDs by this past weekend but it was a no-go Had to work all weekend and then today on my day off, spent all day at my brother's house for the fourth. I have to work tomorrow but then Wednesday I'll probably pick them up again and finish them off. I just found my Eclipse DVD earlier too so I think I need to have a Harry Potter and Twilight marathon so I can get some work done.
I flippin' love acrylic yarn. I started crocheting and knitting with Red Heart Super Saver. As I started to become more adventurous, I tried different acrylic yarns and found RHSS to be just awful. I remember I was knitting a scarf and where the yarn was running through my fingers where I control tension, it gave me a blister! I immediately frogged the project because I just couldn't work with it! Their Red Heart Soft yarn is a delight though. The I Love This Yarn! and Caron Simply Soft like others have said are awesome. Vanna's Choice is also a very soft yarn but the skeins are a lot smaller and they don't have as many colors. I also love wool and alpaca but sometimes they're just not practical
