I freely admit to having a yarn addiction and I’ve been doing good lately at only buying for a current project, which isn’t much of a problem since I usually use the yarns I can find at Joann’s or Michael’s. But notice the past tense, I’ve been. There’s a very good reason for the past tense, Joann’s is carrying Lion Brand’s Holiday Homespun yarn. And the colors are so pretty! The first time I saw them I did good and resisted buying some. After all, I didn’t have a project using those colors/yarns. Then Lion announced that all their patterns (Lion’s, not patterns they sell by other publishers) listed on their website would be free! Hey, free patterns?! Hot dog! I have a weakness for patterns too, especially free ones. Off I went to scour the site to see what patterns I’d like to add to my collection.
That’s when I saw patterns that will be great with the new Holiday Homespun yarns. Score! A reason for me to go buy some of that oh so pretty yarn! I have been doing good and only buying with a coupon. Now one of the things I’m contemplating is a round ripple in the brighter shades. They’re just soo pretty 🙂 And I currently have a skein of each color they have available, more to come when I get more coupons.
