Yes sir, yes sir, 3 bags full

I had a coupon for 25% off my total purchase at Joann Fabrics, so although it was months before I need it, I took advantage of the sale and bought all the yarn I plan to use for the Richburg Community Weaving Project.

3 bags full of yarn

My choices raised some questions while I was standing in line, and again while I was checking out. It’s certainly not common to buy a few hundred dollars worth of yarn – one skein of each, in a variety of colors, textures, and weights. I simply said it was for a community project and that people would get to choose what they wanted to weave with. I didn’t think I could reasonably explain the whole thing in the checkout line. Besides, my little dog was waiting in the car for me, and it’s certainly not his favorite thing to do.

It will be so much fun, and so interesting, to see what people choose, and if the music has any impact. We’ll have one evening of classical, one of old rock & roll, and and African drum quartet to close out the season.

I hope the weather is pleasant each of the evenings.

    You’ll have to be sure to post lots of photos Peg. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for wonderful weather for you.

    Oooh, I’m loving some of your choices! Can’t wait to see the finished project!

    Thanks Judy & Alma. I do plan to take lots of pics. I might need to enlist a helper to do that, depending on how much weaving assistance people need. Plus I have to remember to bring extra camera batteries with me. 🙂
