Weekend Wonderment ~ 5/11 - 5/13

And y'all know how it pains me to do this too... yeah, right!
As you can see, I was able to sit down and work through all 220 yards last night. It was wonderful!  The only problem was, I ran out of yarn before I finished my bag.  I  had a split second of panic and then I regrouped.  I went online to find coupons to one of my local big box craft stores. I knew the next step in my dyeing journey was going to be the Wilton icing dyes and I was prepared... sort of... okay not really but I am going there anyway!

After taking Hobbit to school, I took my coupons and my pocket money to the store where I was able to purchase the same base yarn and a 12 color starter pack for roughly $12 - incredible to me because the color itself is marked at $15!  As soon as I clean up the kitchen, and change my clothes, I am going to figure out how to make a nice red... I think that will work to finish off my bag and strap.

You'll have to stay tuned for the next steps because it will be amazing - I'll leave you with a little tease... I'm going to make a flap top for it too that will incorporate most if not all of the colors already used, plus one more!!


  1. the colors are gorgeous so far -- hope you are able to get the shade of red you want to go with it! Good luck!

    1. I actually opted for a purple! It is currently cooling on my counter so I can rinse it and hopefully use it tomorrow.
