Last week I got a message from Ivy telling the Woolies she just bought a jumbo grab bag from Stitch Together Studio. When I hear about my friends buying yarn I immediately want to do that too, so I headed to Stitch Together to snag a grab bag before she ran out. The grab bag was around $100, and it was well worth it. I didn’t know what would be in the grab bag, but I knew I would be happy with whatever I got.
The grab bag included a sewing merit badge, a funky faux fur pompom (Audrey has already requested it), a candle in the llamas scent (it smells like fresh laundry and flowers, not a farmyard), two kinds of wool wash (including one that is made in Iowa), two buttons, a project bag, and some stickers. I have a feeling the knitting Krampus sticker will be heading to one of my Blogville buddies. All of these trinkets were are a fun surprise, but the real treasure was the yarn.
There were three mini skeins, which will be put to use in my scrap blanket. There was skein of neon yellow and green fingering weight yarn, which is something I normally would not pick. There was a skein a sparkly green yarn that I love and will probably become socks. There were two sport weight skeins, one of which reminds me of an exploding TARDIS. There was a tomato orange DK skein that is going to be some sort of hat for Elliot. There is also a worsted skein that is begging to be used in a colorwork hat or cowl.
This was an amazing package to open up. I am excited to try everything out, including the neon yarn. If I could sign up for a quarterly grab bag I would do it in an instant.
Have you ever purchased yarn without knowing what weight or color you would receive?
