Yarn Haul!!!!

I have to tell you, my brother bought me a $100 gift card to Michaels for Christmas that has been burning a hole in my pocket!! I bought yarn today at, now get this, FULL FREAKING PRICE. Even I am shocked. I bought two skeins of Wool-Ease Heather Gray for a scarf for my hubby, 5 skeins of mulberry heather from Wool-Ease to make that cool tweed poncho pattern I saw on Crochetville. I also bought 6 balls of Microspun in Ebony to make the ripple shawl/wrap, and two balls of Bernat Frenzy in a blue multi to make a scarf for my mother. Oh, also two balls of Sugar and Cream cotton yarn for dishcloths. All that and I still have almost $50 bucks left!! Woo-hoo!!

I also splurged and bought myself a yarn winder off of eBay!! Oh, a cotton backpack/bag for a new crocheting bag.

I am so excited I'm scaring myself!!!!

Congrats on the haul! Sounds like you will be busy ;) You are SO gonna love your winder *g* I started using one of the balls I made last night, it's Wool-Ease and I swear it just comes out of the center of that ball like butter. I set the ball in my lap and it just flows out as I crochet. No more flopping skeins/balls that fall off onto the floor n get cat hair or nip in 'em... I'm in love lol.

So whatcha gonna spend the rest of your money on? *g*
