If you haven’t read this post, then do so first. Or don’t, lol. Either way, you’ll get the point.
I failed, and I failed hard.
It didn’t take long for my genuine freaking plan to stop buying yarn, to turn into a shit show. lol. Part of it was the medicine malfunction (retail therapy is real, people!), but I know it was also my lack of self control, as well as so many irresistible pretties. 😩
Now, for the goodies…
Gamer Crafting is rad, mmkay? Thank you, Angie, for the freebie mini skein! ❤ All of these gorgeous skeins are just YUM.
Expression Fiber Arts keeps on pulling me back in; I LOVE it! I break my self-imposed yarn bans most often with EFA yarn, and I’m not the slighest bit ashamed. How about those pins?! I’m in love. 💞
My first Virtual Yarns order blew my mind. It shall be the perfect beginner cables project!
GeoMinimalist had exactly what I was looking for! This was an “I love me” gift for myself.
Craftsy kits, FTW! The top one is a beginner brioche kit (I didn’t realize the words were covered until later, lol), the hat kit is just WOW, and the cowl kit was pretty much made for me, for a few reasons! 😉
GrayVervain had the perfect stand for my glass sphere! I love the Moon, and mandalas, so the two together? HELL YES!
My EnjoyTheTraffic moon phases tote is perfection. That inner pocket makes it even more rad!
The Sheepyshire brought me back yet again, with some beyond amazing colorways, shiny stitch markers, and an incredible rainbow set!
From my favorite shop (and friend) ever, come the most gorgeous yarn and notions ever! SillySheepDesigns never disappoints, and always dazzles me. Plus Wanda was the sweetest ever and added some wicked lovely goodies to my order (first pic)! Thank you, sweetheart! 💜💜
My first ever HandDrawnYarn yarn order rendered me speechless! I’ll be turning these beauties into their “Chasing Unicorns” shawl and “Unicorn Footprints” hat patterns.
TeeTurtle is so full of fun and cute stuff! The unicorn stuffy turns inside out, and that’s a Ravenclaw kiki!
I’ve always adored Rebecca’s Room stitch markers, and, as with the others I’ve bought from this lovely shop, these stunning pieces were right up my alley! I got a heart to symbolize each of my Family members (Critters included, obvi), and the Mum set is just so pretty and clearly quite fitting for me! 😏
How about these MarkMyStitches pretties?! This was my first purchase; each stitch marker set came with a freebie marker, and the cute colors and unicorns made me feel young again.
Book Soup had the perfect Mother’s Day gift for yours truly! This book is badass like whoa, and the perks made it so personal and fun!
YarnBox knows I can’t help myself – to not just the monthly boxes of squishy yarns, but to their sale yarn, as well! I finally got a Luxe box, too, so I’m pretty set for now.
KayNoxx snagged me with her non-snagging BB-8 stitch markers! 😁 They’re just darling, and the drawing on my receipt is awesome!
BeachBumYarn has some of the most incredible colorways! I’d never purchased from this shop before, but I saw some suggested yarn of theirs on Etsy, found these vibrant pretties, and had to have them.
It’d been a long time since I’d bought from Schibot Garne, but it wasn’t because I’m not absolutely obsessed with their yarn! These beauties will be used in their pattern collection called “Winter is Coming,” found here.
fireflynotes won me over with the most dainty and rad cat heads and stars stitch markers! The pin was also irresistible, for obvious reasons.
Local Yarn Store Day was a hit! My Son and I enjoyed being able to participate in this super rad event, and got some yarn on sale as a result! Our LYS is wonderful, and the owner is even more so; she was ecstatic to see us (mainly BatKid, hehe) there, and even gave us those cute rainbow markers for free! The Concentric yarns were something I’d been drooling over for a long time (because rainbow, obvi), so it was the perfect day to finally buy them. 😆
YarnPop went above and beyond with this purchase! They’d had a closeout sale on certain bags with particular fabric patterns, so I jumped at the chance to get some. However, one of the ones I chose ended up being sold out (I guess it simultaneously happened when I ordered, lol). I found out because the wonderful company reached out to me, along with an offer to replace it, for the same price, with one of their bigger and more expensive bags. I was blown away at the extremely generous solution, and graciously accepted. That, my friends, is how I ended up with the elephant bag! They are one of my top five favorite animals, so I was totally okay with not getting the bag I’d originally chosen. Thank you, YarnPop!
Midknit Cravings created the most incredible colorway, for the most amazing cause. I empathized 10,000% with the meaning behind the color choices and reasons they were included (Jaedyn explains it on her podcast, found here), and because of that and the cause, I had to get a couple.
Yarn Cafe Creations and WipsOnSticksFiberCo came together for the same cause, and made the greatest set of yarn and markers. Two was better than one, again, but obviously not just because I love yarn.
My first SewHappyCreative order was nothing short of perfection. I found two of my many favorite things – Autumn and sunflowers – in this lovely shop, and it just was not an option to leave them there. ha!
Bana&Bean did it again! Never have I purchased a kit that included a project bag plus other rad things, so I was over the moon when Amber posted this rad The Wizard of Oz bag. I’m not, like, a “super fan“ of The Wizard of Oz, but I have loved it since I was a youngin’, and my Men also love it…so, yeah, I couldn’t resist this beautiful set! I also couldn’t resist this wicked pretty sunflowers bag, despite having just bought a different one (as mentioned above). They’re my favorite flowers, what can I say?
*puts on a serious face* I won’t be buying yarn for a very, Very, VERY long time. Not only have I run out of room, but homeowner (and vehicle owner and Pet Guardian) life is full of surprises. Priorities first, but also? I barely craft these days! Why on earth would I get more yarn, when it’s not even being used? 😂
Now, go visit each of these shops/websites, treat yourself, and show me what you got. 😊
