This got me thinking about my yarn stash and I realised that I don't really have much of a yarn stash. Even before giving away about half of my stash to my sister, most of what I had were either left over balls or yarn I didn't wish to use. What I'm left with doesn't inspire me and I really want to be excited by the yarn I have.
The vloggers in these videos do get excited by their stash, and I can see why because they are so luxurious, some of them have been spun or dyed by the vloggers themselves and it leaves me wanting to reach into the screen and grab one for myself.
After watching the process of spinning and dying yarn, I now appreciate the hard work that goes into it. All this has led me to the decision to try yarns that I would have previously overlooked, thinking that they were over priced.
As well as the yarn, I also picked up these fruit-themed stitch markers and a project bag from Etsy. The seller popped in an extra stitch marker and some fun buttons, which I may use for Miss U's Sheepaca garment. Also from Etsy I got a fun tote bag, it was sold at a reduced rate for having some blemishes, but I can't see anything wrong with it.
I bought some fabric to use as head wraps, but I have so much of it (9 yds in total) that I'm going to use the rest to try and make my own project bags. There are so many YouTube tutorials and so I don't imagine it would be too hard.
What would be your ultimate thing to splurge on?
