Yarn Love

I love yarn, and even though I have enough around here tucked away in baskets and drawers and cupboards, I still found myself buying more when our one and only craft store was having a sale.

Somehow, it just doesn't look quite as lovely as all the yarn I saw while in Nepal.





But I use what I have, and continue to create ...



and that makes me very happy, especially when it is 122 degrees outside.

Hugs and blessings for a wonderful Wednesday! Tammy

I do love those yarn colors in Nepal ~ I am still traveling through
your pictures ~ You have gotten to go to the most awesome places !!
It is 110 here during the day in Texas and we are all dying ~ I can't even imagine 122 ~ Do people there think that is extremely hot or is that normal for summer ?

Wow hot hot.We had a hundred degrees for several weeks,but 122 thats just terrible LOL.But Im wondering if its high humidity there in the desert?Here we get the humidity as well.

Lovely yarn,I just bought a small skein the other day to practice some different things.I think your blog inspired me to pick some up,lol.

Have a great day!Or is it night???evening I think..

The yarn in Nepal does look beautiful the way it is displayed in the baskets. Such gorgeous colors!
You always do beautiful work with your crocheting and knitting and I always love seeing what you've made.
It's probably pointless to say "try and stay cool" but I hope you are!!

I agree.....yarn is like eye candy to me and I always want more. I don't allow myself to go to the actual yarn store here....toooooo tempting!
Have a great day!

I love the way the shop in Nepal displayed their beautiful yarns. And...I am sure that you will whip up wonderful things with your own stash of beautiful yarns Tammy.

122 degrees? I can't even imagine!

sending cooling hugs your way...

Oh, I agree with you. One can never have enough yarn or material! Such pretty colors and I love your creations! Stay cool! blessings,Kathleen

Josie said...

Hiya Tammy, I'm in "yarn love" too and can never pass up a good sale. Oh and all that fiber goodness in Nepal is a feast for the eyes!

How interesting to know how you ended up in Kuwait. I was thinking how far from home you've gone, but really, isn't 'home' wherever you are with your loved ones?

Have a lovely rest of your week. xJosie

I'm a yarn lover too and it is hard to resist a sale.

Wow, 122 deg....I thought it was hot here. I suppose it is more a dry heat where you are at though? Our humid weather has been passing the dewpoint of jungle weather.

Enjoy your new yarn and stay cool. :-)

La Tea Dah said...

Beautiful post --- I love the textures and colors. I'm glad you have something "cool" to do since it's so hot outside!

glor said...

And create you will and I know that these will be stunning creations, as always. Especially because they are made with such care!! 122 degrees ... oh my, I can't imagine how hot that is.

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh wow, it is unbelievably hot there! It's going to be hot here today too...but not that high. I love all your yarn!!

And I've got to tell you that it is so amazing you did that whole change when you did--You look like a model!!

Kit said...

And hear I am complaining and it is 80 degrees out. I should be ashamed....LOL I love that you sit back and create and just accept that you have to stay in. More folks should have your wonderful outlook on life. Kit

Gwendolyn said...

I used to collect yarn , now I buy only what I need as I seldome crochet much anymore. I had a crazy dream last night that Zack married a girlfriend of mine and stayed in the states with her. Ha!!

Bj said...

Visiting your Blog is always like visiting a very welcoming room -- love it!

Happy yarning. (I know that's not a word ok)

Peace and Love, Melissa

The Garden Bell said...

Yarn on sale is always a must. I so love seeing fun stuff from other countries.

Ok, I will stop complaining about being in the 100s here. I don't know how you do that.

no spring chicken said...

Did you say 122 degrees? Were you exaggerating? So, did you come home with any of that wonderful Nepal yarn?

Blessings, Debbie

Heldasland said...

I guess we have to admit we are addicted to yarn. I cant resist buying just one more ball,I have enough yard that I will never use them in my lifetime and yet I still buy in case there will be a yarn shortage.

Diane said...

Oh --- 122 degrees!!!
I'm glad you get such joy from the yarn and creating, it just makes life so wonderful, doesn't it! Blessings, Diane

122! And here I sit freezing my toes off. Funny that.

Tammi said...

Can one ever have enough yarn? Me thinks not :)
It is still bitterly cold here but at least the sun is out :)

Linda said...

Lovely. :) I never buy yarn though - today my vice was... new clothes. Sarah and I went back-to-school shopping and I found 4 cute new tops as well, lol.

It was just slightly less humid here today and tonight. Looking forward to some nicer weather perhaps. I can't imagine the heat you have, though honestly when it gets to the upper 90s and onward, it all seems relative.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Oh my and I complained today when it was only 104...lol
I love yarns too it is just something about holding them and enjoying their beauty.
Glad you are creative enough to turn these into beautiful pieces
Try to stay cool
Love
Maggie

Saritha said...

Yummy yarn!!!Is that yarn in Nepal Sari silk yarn. Looks similar to that!!

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

You do have a quite a stash of yarn and you turn it into lovey things. I have a feeling you feel about your yarn like I do about fabric. I read your story in the previous post. Great learning a little of your story.
Great picture of you and hubby.

Brandy Marie said...

Love this post :) I think Nepal does it better too, not that yours are not lovely ;) Hope you have a great Thursday _B

Amanda Putri said...

my crocheting friends said that craving for yarn (even though we still had lots of them in our basket) is like having an uncureable disease :D.

Little Treasures said...

Well, me too Tammy! This reminds me of the trip to Tunisia. we had two years ago. I had the time of my life visiting the yarn shops and had to collect my jaw from the floor when they told me the price - so cheap - I could have brought tons of it with me. My husband took a picture of me in one such shop. I look like Alice in Wonderland - sans drools :)

A Cottage Muse said...

Hello Tammy! I am sitting on my screenporch at my campground catching up with you. It is a beautiful day...high 70s...no humidity! Hoping the thoughts of that will cool you down a bit! Glad you are beating the heat and being creative!
