There were of course some lovely yarns. I don't have what could be called a yarn stash and I don't want one. So I'm disciplining myself to only getting new yarn or thread for a particular project.
I have two in progress that I'm enjoying. I find that after years of making only afghans I want more practical yet beautiful homey things like placemats and table runners and scarves.
Today I found some lovely crochet project pamphlets and books. They are just the sort of thing I've been hoping for and some were on sale. So my thinking is, I can hunt for patterns rather than all that yarn. It takes up far less space and is most pleasing to dream over.
I didn't see any cotton yarn today that went with any of my project patterns.
Off I went though, happy with my things. I've decided that it would be fun to treasure hunt the sorts of things I like so next stop is the library to see what they have for me.
