I need to post a photo!
There, that one will do, ha!
Somewhere between here and there
I had a light bulb moment.
It was during my many travels in blog land
that I discovered just what it is that bugs me
about my yarn.
It just isn't up to par!!!!
Now I have used RH for ages, that stuff and I
have history, we have been buddies forever.
BUT (yes, that is a BIG BUT you are seeing),
I do recall lovely yarns when my friend Jean had her yarn shop.
Jean hated RH.
It was as simple as that.
She use to call it "cheap",
but then she was in the business to sell quality yarn.
I could understand that some people just didn't have
the extra bucks it took to purchase her yarn.
RH was more reasonably priced.
When she closed up shop, I became a backslider.
When you live in the sticks (country, boon docks, etc.)
you buy what is close at hand.
And then I read some of those lovely blogs from England and
Australia and I know many of these women live in similar places to where I live, out in no where.
A lot of them do live in villages where there is a YARN SHOP!!
Okay, I secretly have a love/hate relationship with these blogs, rubbing the pics of their lovely yarn right in my face, LOL!
BUT (there it is again, that BIG BUT),
I got smart,
I have sat right here like a dummy for too long
and finally wised up.
I have the biggest store right at my fingertips,
and I also have a couple of catalogs.
It did not help me (or maybe it did)
to find Lucy as the very first blog I ran across
way back before I even realized what a blog was.
Just about everything she made looked like a rainbow.
Oh I know, she has a yarn shop close by,
she has blogged about it, lol.
She also has an excellent eye for color combinations.
Now don't get me wrong,
I still like my RH yarn,
BUT (there it is again), I need to break loose and buy some
soft, yummy, vibrant, delicious colors.
I intend to break the mold.
I have promised myself to use up the old stuff
and treat myself to the stuff
the rest of the gang is
I wanna play too!
