This has always been one of my favorite songs, and I heard it on Memorial Day.
My daughter and I stopped by A.C. Moore, when this song started playing, and I stopped and listened for a bit. It brings back a lot of good memories…
We were at A.C. Moore because I needed to purchase yarn.
As I’ve mentioned already, I do a lot of work with charity based organizations; several are generated from my Lutheran church. A. C. Moore was having a sale on Lion Brand Vanna Colors, $1.00 per skien. It’s my first time using it, and I must say I really like it a lot.
The skien is only 101 yards. As I mentioned in an earlier post, if I know that I’ll be making items for those who might not have a lot of money. I always choose a yarn that doesn’t need special care, and so acrylic blends are always a good option. I was impressed with how soft this brand was, acrylic yarns have come a long way.
I’m happy to say that this yarn is working wonderfully with the knitted stockinette scarf that I’m donating to the local homeless shelter. This scarf is about 24″ now. I volunteer (make breakfast) and am the church coordinator for this ministry.
I won’t be donating the items until the cooler months. I’ve set aside a tub for all my charity based crocheted and knitted projects. Amigurumi toys will be finding their way into this charity bin also.
