Because I finished this one! *cough* I finished in July, but let’s ignore that for right now.
Bonus: I won at yarn chicken.
I’ve probably had this yarn for over 20 years and I started the blanket almost 10 years ago. It feels great to have this one done.
The yarn had Sprouse Reitz stickers on it, and the last time I shopped at one was at least 35 years ago in Ft. Bragg. I vaguely remember purchasing this yarn at a Fred Meyers or K-Mart and it was in a clearance bin. The clearance sticker says .84! Which means I obtained the yarn after I moved to Utah and before the Fred Meyers closed.
So, the yarn was nigh unto ‘vintage’ by the time I started the blanket. I bought the yarn for the color and it was pretty nice to crochet with. It is Lion Brand Jiffy and had a fuzzy halo to it, but it wasn’t splitty and the work went fast. Well, fast while I was working on it, not so much when my ADHD had me wandering off to do something else.
I wonder what my next oldest project is. I know for sure that I have older yarn but it’s sitting safely in a bin waiting for inspiration to strike.
