Yarn Haul: Loops & Threads and Caron


I may or may not have purchased more yarn over the weekend. I mean, I don't know if this is a thing or not, but the yarn hoarding has probably reached intervention-level hysteria.

The good news is that half of the above haul is for orders. With an impending trip to San Diego at the end of the month, it's important that I pump out FOs so mama has some spending money. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've been working overtime and posting photos like a crazy person; let's just say there's more where that came from. The countdown is on.

The rest of it - the grey fluffy stuff from Loops & Threads - is so I can crochet this Katniss Cross-Body Cowl for a poncho crochet-a-long happening on Facebook. I've seen different versions of the "Catching Fire" design floating around, and this particular pattern struck my fancy. It's made from super bulky weight yarn and a P hook, so I'm thrilled at the chance to not lose my attention on a hopefully-quick-while-still-being-larger-scale project. Wish me luck - it's in God's hands now.
