I bought some Lionbrand Homespun yarn on a whim some months back (er...February) expecting to make a blanket. That didn't happen. It kept unraveling on me and just all out making me OH SO MAD. I grounded the yarn and it stayed in my craft room. And it stayed and stayed and stayed up until recently.
I found a pattern online for a newborn cocoon/egg bowl/etc. It has a lot of names, but the pattern maker used the Lionbrand Homespun. I figured I could give it a shot and get it destashed and then complain to the husband that my yarn stash is depleting and I need more (hehehe). Much to my shock and awe, it actually WORKED! I crocheted with it!





And then..I fell inlove with it. Ugh. I had to have more. It was just so soft and so pretty and...I needed more. So I got more. And I cursed at myself over and over because there was just no way it would work out again.
I ended up finding another pattern, this time for a stork pouch. And, WTF? It worked AGAIN!





And now? Now I need more yarn. I want to make things that work with this yarn and maybe, eventually, I'll get my soft, cozy blanket. *sigh* One can dream, right?

Thanks for letting me share!

What sweet pods. Perhaps now you've got the hang of it, that blanket won't be too far away.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
