As i've travelled around some of the more gorgeous crafty blogs on the net, i've realised i need to start raising my standard as far as crafty makes is concerned. At least spend more time on the finer details.
To do this, you obviously need some nice bits of stash, or at least it helps. However some items don't come cheap. Fibres are something i am lacking in greatly, and i can't stand spending out loads on a few tiny bits that get used up in one go, so today i was well chuffed when i found these balls of knitting yarn in a cheapy shop.
I love these as i am so taken with autumn colours this year.....well for the first time ever actually. That is pretty sad considering i live in the forest where there are some of the most gorgeous colours blooming all around me, but until recently i've just not been that bothered about the colour.
However this is the first autumn where i have really taken notice of colours, probably due to blogging and seeing everyone else's fantastic creations.
Lea got me addicted to orange with the help of her stunning pumpkin and corn maze photos here, and theres been so many autumn cards and layouts that you cannot fail to get hooked on the colours. So these were a great find, i could just picture them embellishing the book rings of an album or accentuating a tag.
Except this cost me 75 pence for a ball......i'm not sure i'd get that many fibres for that price. If i mix all three together, they will be lovely.
So next time you're shopping, take a look in the nearest wool shop for the more unusual yarns, you might be saving a packet on your fibres.
