She chose Mauve glow for the mc, princess, fresh flowers, and birch white with breath of blue for contrast. So I nixed making this for the family room or living room and decided to make it for her. I will have lots of incentive to get it finished and joined!
I went to the Joann's website today found that they have all bernat yarn 30% off until tomorrow night! With a free shipping code it was less than $39 for the CAL yarn. Yeah!
Becky, that sounds like our daughter...pink, pink and more pink!
Oh how lovely it must be to get yarn so cheap, it's so expensive here in the UK and acrylics in particular are not always great quality, imo. Have read good things about Waverly so expectations are high!
At least Bernat were offering the 25% off, softening the blow of a $75 yarn invoice (about £50).
Ssh...don't tell the husband. It's a small price to pay for an afghan which I am hoping will be nice enough once complete to become a family heirloom.
