It’s always exciting to go out and buy new yarns, especially when you’ve been trying to use yarn from your stash, and when you’re sick of the colors that you have at home and you want to get some different ones. One can only knit with so much baby blue.
To be frugal, I picked out the patterns I wanted to do before I went shopping, so that I went armed with a very specific list for yarns, such as “55-110 yards of a brown weight 5 yarn.” I also used coupons (and competitor coupons)!
- Sensations Sincerely in Grass Green – Weight 4
- Bernat Softee Chunky in Dark Taupe (I call it dark brown) – Weight 5
- Caron Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) in Coral (I call it bright orange) – Weight 4
