Inspired by pretty yarn at Michaels

About a month ago I had some extra time while I was waiting to meet with a friend and decided to spend it in my favorite craft store – Michaels.  I had been trying to avoid going there because I was trying to use the stash of supplies I already have, and I know that it is really hard to resist buying something while I am there.  But this time I gave in to temptation and decided to browse in both the scrapbooking section and the yarn section.   Sure enough it wasn’t long before my eyes found some pretty yarn with an equally pretty name – gumdrop.  I didn’t have any idea what I was going to make with it, so I decided I had better pick up two skeins  – I sure didn’t want to run short when I finally decided what to make.

I met with my friend and didn’t get home until late, so it wasn’t until the next day that I could look through some patterns and decide what to make with my new yarn.  The other projects that I had been working on got set aside while I worked with this yarn.

When I finished my first project I was still so excited about this yarn that I found another pattern and made it.

And then made a third project before I ran out of yarn.
