As I mentioned a few weeks ago, in August I signed up for the Jellywares Yarn Club again and my first package arrived early in September. Incase you don't know, the yarn club runs for a 3 month period (I joined the spring one) and each month you receive a fantastic box of yarn related goodies in the mail box. This is the second time I've signed up and it's a really nice way to try new yarns and guys, it's so fun to receive something nice in the mail that's craft related, a complete surprise and not a bill that needs paying.
When I signed up I had a little talk with myself, kind of a one person hand shake deal, that I would use all the yarn that I received and actually make something each month. I didn't want to sign up and then just collect yarn for 3 months, even though that does sound kind of nice too! When I signed up for round 1 of the club, I was a good girl and made my moss stitch loop scarf with one month's box and I also used up all of the cotton that came in another box for some dishcloths. The third box in the first round included a colour that didn't really take my fancy (maroon), so I decided to gift that yarn to my friend, because I knew that she'd eventually make something with it.
