Yarn Haul

Hey Ladies!

I know, I know, I haven't been on here that often lately. But I promise that doesn't mean I'm not working on some crafting or crochet projects. As a matter of fact, I am currently busy preparing some sort of Halloween special. Furthermore, I already started working on some Christmas decor. So I'm quite positive I'll have some new crafty creations to share with you in June.

In the meantime, a little yarn haul! I stocked up on yarn, mainly acrylic but also a cotton blend.

So in the picture you can see...

...a huge blue skein of blue acrylic yarn on the right. I bought it at Real (comparable to Walmart) a little while ago and it seems to be their own brand.
Knitting Yarn Maxi Quick - Color code 735, 400g, 1066m, 100% acrylic yarn, hook size 3-3.5mm

...on the bottom left three cream-colored skeins of another acrylic yarn. These I bought at Galeria Kaufhof (a German department store chain).
Schachenmayr Bravo - Color Code 8200, 133m, 50g, 100% acrylic yarn, hook size 3-4mm

...on top of the Schachenmayr Bravo skeins two colorful skeins of - you might have guessed it already - yet another acrylic yarn. This one was also bought at Galeria Kaufhof.
Schachenmayr Bravo Color - Color code 2083, 50g, 133m, 100% acrylic yarn, hook size 3-4mm

...on the very top one skein of a turquoise cotton yarn, which I bought at Wolle Rödel, one of the many local yarn shops here in Kassel.
Rico Design essentials cotton lurex - Color Code 10, 50g, 170m, 97% cotton, 3% Polyester (lurex), hook size 3mm

I didn't buy most of that yarn on purpose, it just came my way more or less :)

Alright, that's it so far! Today I'm enjoying a day off because it's a public holiday (Fronleichnam, Corpus Christi). I originally planned to go to a garden festival with a friend. Unfortunately, it's been raining for three days straight now so we decided to postpone that. So hopefully on Saturday the weather will be better. No rain and some sunshine would be awesome. But well, we'll see...

Talk to you soon, ladies!



  1. Great yarn haul - I like that pretty variegated yarn. Have a good day. :)

  2. Que cores lindas!
    Agora venham os trabalhos!!!

  3. Nice yarn adquisition :-) do you have something planned already ?

    1. Thanks :) Well, not really. I'm thinking of maybe using the Rico Design essentials cotton lurex for some sleeping masks but I'm not 100% sure yet. I'll keep you posted :)
