Seriously...I'm in need of a Yarn-Aholics-Anonymous Group

I swore to myself after my last post, "NO MORE YARN!!" until I used up some of what I had. Errrr...Not so much. Here are just a few of the lovely things I've picked up since the last post...

I am most excited for the Wrapunzel yarn! It is so soft and has a ton of different colors and textures. I LOVE it!! These are my new favorite types of yarn. I really have a problem, and think I need therapy. (It's better than doing drugs, right?!)

So, after the yarn spree, I ordered myself a pair of knitting needles from Laurel Hill. This is the site I got my ebony crochet hooks. Love love loooooooove them. Worth every penny, if I do say so myself.
We'll see how the knitting goes. I suck, so I'm not thinking it will go very well. I am a much better crocheter. Not to mention, I am impatient and I get faster results with crocheting. :)

I am also working on a fun hat for Ty, and I am ALMOST done, except I need to buy some plastic canvas for the brim. You dont get a picture of this, because I dont have a good one. Sorry.

Here is the first current project I am working on, since Scarlett's blanket has bored me and is on the backburner:
This is a mesh scarf I found online. It's fun and should be flowy. I'm using Vanna's Choice, so it's not as flowy as I'd like. But the yarn is beautiful and it will be nice when finished. I bought some gold Vanna's Glamour, which I think will work much better the 2nd time around.

This next project is top priority, and the most special I've done so far:
I'm making this lovely throw for my mom for her 50th birthday. I'm hoping I can have it done in time (2 weeks!!). If not, I'll be busting my ass to get it done by Mother's Day. This is Lion Brand Jiffy Yarn, in Lavendar. Beautiful and soft. I'm contemplating making one for my MIL's 50th birthday in November too; except I'm going to do white or off white.

Last, but definitely NOT least, is my BEST purchase since last post:
My super awesome, mega cool Yarn Owl Tattoo!!!!!!! :D


  1. ooooooh I love all the yummy yarns...and your tattoo ROCKS!

  2. Hi Scarlett. Is this tattoo real?! Wow! I love him. I share in your yarn addiction. It seems every time I start a new project I don't have the right yarn or the right color. Now I have a huge stash that I must find a purpose for... Happy to see you at Tangled Happy. I would love to see your finished bag. Thanks for your nice comment. Happy Easter! :)

  3. Thank you both! Yep, my tattoo is real. He's probably my favorite, aside from the half sleeve I'm working on now. :) I didn't realize I had to publish people's comments, so I'm sorry about that!!
