I love road trips. I enjoy being in the car with my handsome husband and looking at the beauty of the earth as we drive to a fun destination. Crocheting as we go makes the trip absolutely a 10 out of 10 for me:)We just spent 2 days in the car driving to Idaho. I was able to sew on my Mandala Madness as I went. Yea! All went very well until–I RAN OUT OF YARN!!! I mean, really no more yarn! The kit I bought from Wool Warehouse did not send enough:(.
Now, I don’t mean to complain, but I have bought many a kit in my life and usually have enough plus extra for a small project from the scraps. Not so here. I am using the correct needle size. Oh well. Life happens right?
I went on crocheting and ran out of the next few colors as well. I ran into a Hobby Lobby and picked up a few skiens of any yarn that would match. The dark purple was fairly easy to find, but the dusty blue was harder.
Seeing it up close like this really shows the contrast. Further out, it is better. I am sure that in the end, these added colors won’t make a hill of beans of a difference, but it was a little frustrating to be sure.
It’s still a SWEET day! –Tracy
