I always end up with extra yarn. I buy too much of one color or get gifts of yarn that I don't use or like the color of... so yesterday was recycle day. I packed my backpack full of leftover tidbits and went to Hobby Lobby. I wanted to find some nice cotton to make a summer tank and some Sugar 'n Cream in new colors.
I found the greatest thing ever!! A kit for a Nicky Epstein coat. (The coat is hideous, sorry Nicky...) BUT it had 10 skeins of sage green mercerized cotton --- marked down from $50.00 to $9.22!! OMG. Less than a dollar a skein! It's Reynolds Top Seed Cotton. (The color on the card is much closer than any of my photos. I think my floors made it look more beige.) It's very lovely and I adore the color. Perfect for summer. Now I just need a pattern!
And here is all my new kitchen cotton:
I also grabbed a ball of Yarn Bee Soft Delight. I've used it once before in a kit and liked it. It was fun to use and it was only 99 cents.
