Has this ever happened to you? >>>
You pick a project and order the yarn.

The yarn arrives and you have NO idea what project you were going to use it for....?




I've got to get organized!!!!

Don't give it a thought. Just make you something fun. Then when the thought comes to you you will just order some more yarn. Now doesn't that sound like the thing to do?

Thank goodness my dh doesn't ask what are you going to make with the yarn you just bought. I do it all the time. So it just goes in the stash until I can figure out what to do with it.

And when that second order of yarn comes in, I'll still be scratching my head!

Well, if you can't think of a project, you can always send the yarn to me

I don't think I've ever ordered yarn without a project but, by golly, it sounds like fun!!!!

I bought some yarn, but then I couldn't remember where the pattern was!

After three days I remembered it was on Ravelry -- when I went to check I found out I bought THE EXACT SAME YARN, same color, brand, and all, that was used for the FO -- I thought it was a different yarn and that I was guessing so I bought extra skeins too.

(No wonder I kept thinking, "I'm sure it would be pretty in this color" even though I don't normally like shades of green. )

It sounds like it's time to go pattern surfing.
