I think I have a problem...

I think I might need Yarnaholics Anonymous, if such a thing exists! I can't resist yarn when it's a bargain, and I happened to stumble upon three huge bargain bins in my local craft shop today. Even though there is far too much yarn in my stash already, I couldn't help having a rummage through the bins just to see if there was anything that took my fancy. Half an hour later, I came away with this...

Now, I know it seems like a lot of stuff, but I paid only £15 for this whole pile of yarn, and it's worth almost £50! There's some soya, a lot of cotton, and a small ball of some beautiful sparkly pink fluffy stuff. I do have plans for the sparkly stuff, as I thought I might make a sequinned purse, but I don't know what I'm going to do with the rest yet. It will probably end up as clothes for my kids, or the blue cotton might possibly become a textured cushion. It's going to be fun finding things to make!


  1. I think you might not be alone with that :D
    when I see the bargain I just buy... and the boxes are growing at home... I have to share my recent purchase as well, I got some very yummy yarn when I went "I knit weekender" in London


  2. What a bargain stash!!! Yummy!!

    If you find a group please let us all know!!! Although I am doing very well lately not buying more stash...the new stash on my blog was a prize, so it doesn't count!!!!
