Yarn, yarn, yarn

I recently acquired a small subset of my grandma’s yarn stash.  She has Alzheimer’s and can’t use it anymore. I went to visit her, she lives about 500 miles away.

That is all I could fit in my car to take home.  I had to leave a bunch, and by a bunch, I mean buckets and buckets for yarn.  I let some family friends take some, and maybe, I will get more in the mail😉.
Most of what I brought home is wool, with a few exceptions.  There is a fair amount of fur and novelty yarns, as well as some crochet cotton, random worsted acrylic yarn, and even some baby yarn.  I even got the start of some project, no pattern though.
I am thinking I will make some stuff for family members in the near future.

Crochet cat

My 3yr old picked out this bright yarn at Joann’s a while back, and I let her hold it while I was shopping to keep her calm.  I ended up purchasing it because she screamed like crazy when I tried to take it away from her, ahh kids.  I found this random pattern online for a cute cat here.  I think it turned out cute, and I have most of the skein left.  I may make her a scarf for winter or a little shawl with the remainder, only time will tell.
