I was thinking about going green this week with earth day and all that. For my going green project I needed some cotton yarn. I was going to go and buy some, then I looked into my yarn stash and decided that I better start using what I have! I had yarn stashed in all different places so I really didn't know how much I had. You know how some things are an addiction,( well I think I have a problem.) When I see some beautiful colored yarn, I just want to buy it!!!
This last week I put some of my yarn, (I say some because I probably have about this much more stashed in another cupboard) in an open book case. I figured if I could see it then I would most likely not go and buy more.With the yarn out in the open I haven't bought any yarn at all this week! I am 7 days clean from yarn hoarding, it's a start to recovery!
Doesn't this just make you want to make something! I just love all of those beautiful colors!
On to my going green (remember I am trying to recover!).
I saw some bags like these and thought how cute they would be to stash in your car for when you need a bag for something.
I used cotton yarn so it would be easy to wash and because I didn't have enough of the ivory I added the yellow. (See, that is probably why I buy more!) I know I am rationalizing.
I added some bright flowers and polka dot buttons.
I think I am ready to go shopping!
This bag worked up quite quickly and I am thinking they would make a great gift. I better make some more!
Hmmmm, maybe I should go buy some more yarn :)
