The other day, I was talking to my mom on the phone about how badly I want it to snow. She said she’d do a snow dance for me and started chanting (and I assume dancing). I laughed, but she said “watch, it’ll work!”
She was right. Last night, it snowed for the first time this year. I was super excited until I had to run downstairs to the car to get my phone and fell down a flight of stairs. I got down 3 or 4 stairs at what I thought was a careful pace, but apparently I was wrong because I slipped, my feet went flying out in front of me and I landed right on my tailbone. But I didn’t stop there! I continued sliding down the stairs on my back until I got to the bottom. I had to hobble to the car so I could call Nate, and he ran down to help me. I’ve been in bed since then. It hurts to do pretty much everything. I tried to crochet last night but it didn’t work out too well, which I’m pretty sad-faced about, especially since I got new yarn yesterday!
Before the fall, of course, I went to A.C. Moore and used a 50% off coupon to get a pound of mill end yarn. I’m going to say it now, and I know I’ll say it again: I love mill end yarn. A pound of Caron Simply Soft, normally $4+ per skein, for $3.50? Yes, please! A pound of some unknown yarn that is obviously better than RHSS or whatever junk I can usually afford? Yes, please! I love it. So much. Anyway, this is the yarn I got yesterday:
I really like the pattern in the yarn. It’s like different shades of blue wrapped around white. I have no idea what kind of yarn it is, but it’s really soft. Maybe it’s baby yarn. Also, look at my kitty boy Sinclair chillin in the background!
I wish more places sold mill end yarn. So far, I’ve only found it at A.C. Moore, and there’s only one in Connecticut (about 20 minutes away). Caron sells it on their website for $3.99/lb, but you don’t get to choose from the colors they have available and the shipping cost is stupid.
Back to this bag, though. I already know what I want to make with it and it’s killing me that I can’t start it yet! It’s been a while since I tried… I think I’ll go try again.
