Yarn for Another Afghan

I truly need to start this, but I also need to finish the one I'm working on first. Pretty yarn picked out by the mom.

Lion Brand Mystery Box

I got two of these. There wasn't a single skein I wouldn't use. So I lucked out!

Yarn for Babies

The embassy is having a baby boom. I will be using these four skeins of local yarn to make two of the baby afghans. The solo blue skein is a bonus freebie.

Multi Thread

Saw this at Hobby Lobby on home leave and picked it up. I should have gotten more.

Did a couple of Lion Brand's mystery boxes. Got two of the same with these three yarns in them. Orange is already started as a granny square afghan. Not sure what to do with the others yet.

Halloween Colors

I ordered a yarn grab bag from Lion Brand. This is what I got - Halloween colors. The grab bag is at least nine skeins of at least three varieties for $20. It's what I got, but I am so not a fan of orange.

Darn Good Yarn Mystery Box


This box was $99, half the normal price. Everything in it is in these two photos. There are some nice yarns, but I am seriously not impressed. The jewelry making set went to Leonora. She loves it. Other than that, I need to start making some scarves.

Overdyed Yarn


Lion Brand had this on sale for three skeins for ten dollars. I am sure it will make nice neck warmers.

Baby Aghan Yarn

Six skeins of Coboo to make a baby afghan for the Hoffmans. I'm beginning to focus more this week, so maybe I'll get it done.

Prime Day Yarn

Andreas found this yarn on prime day for a good price, so he bought it. Unfortunately, the limit was one skein.

Yarn Sale

The little skeins are from a Lion Brand Yarn sale. I got each package for only two dollars. The white is to go with them as I am planning to make a bright granny square afghan from all these bits.

Saw this on sale and Chandi Expressions and decided I need to make myself a new shawl. Now for the puppy to give me time.

Naples Yarn

While walking to the boneyard from our apartment, I spotted a shop that said Merceria. I went inside and was treated very nicely, even with the language difficulties. Found these nice cotton yarns. They're mine now.
