Yarn and a New Bag!!!

Very warm welcome to all the new followers and a bigggg thank you to all of you who have taken time to leave comments here. I was not able to visit many blogs the past two weeks. Now need to check out everything new happening around.


I ordered 18 balls of the Stylecraft yarn last month. I ordered it in the end of July. I told you I was down health-wise and needed something to cheer me up. I had almost given up hope and thought it's lost when I did not receive the parcel even after 25 days. The people from whom I ordered it online(Deramores) were extremely good and supportive. They even offered to send me a replacement package. But today morning I got it!!!And I am so so happy!!!!


I also bought some pure wool in lovely shades recently. I want to try felting. I know I really went overboard with all the buying. I couldn't help it. I know you all will understand. Although nobody at home does.


This is a bag I made, to use up some of the stash I already have to feel less guilty about all the purchases. It can take the shape of a big shopping bag, a cuter smaller bag, or a square yarn basket. I will share instructions on how to make it, later. And any suggestions for a name for the bag please.

Yummy yarn and a beautiful bag. May I ask how much you paid for shipping? You are a temptress, I mean enabler :)

I fully understand the need to buy more yarn. :)

I suggest "Granny's stash bag" for your new bag. It's very pretty, by the way.

And such pretty yarns you have there.
mmmm ... I am unsure about a name and hope you will share it with us once you decide upon one. :o)
Have a lovely day.
Sincerely, Trish

Oh the colors of that yan are just fabulous! I can see how that would cheer you up. And don't worry, I always go over board when I order yarn. The day they come in the mail is very exciting. :)

Have fun felting! I want to try that sometime.

Don't feel quilty when buying yarn! As long as it makes you happy, I think it's totally justified ;)
And a name for the bag... "The Amazing Versatile Squares Bag" perhaps?

The post can be so odd sometimes. I once had a baby blankie I had crocheted for my cousin's first child not arrive for four months. I had given up that she would ever get it. Glad your happy rainbow of yarny goodness found its way to your door! Looking forward to all the pretty makes you will soon have!
