I found out that the Special Olympics needed crocheted scarves for this year's event. The California chapter had only 45 and needed at 1000. So, I thought why not help out. I went on my quest of the 2 specific colors of yarn needed for the project. Red Heart yarn is not hard to find. What I found out though is Red Heart Supersaver Blue 886 is hard to find. I looked at 3 Michaels, 2 Walmarts, 2 Joanns and 1 Beverlys when I decided that I wasn't going to do the project afterall. I couldn't fine the blue yarn. I really struggled with myself. I could order 2 skeins of yarn from Red Heart and pay shipping. Hopefully, they'd get here in a timely manner. I decided I wasn't going to order yarn. I have other charity projects to work on and I shouldn't beat myself up about not wanting to order a special color of blue yarn. It still weighed heavy on my mind.
Today after my machine knitting class I decided that there was one more Beverlys kind of out of the way, but not that far. I drove over and low and behold they had Blue 886. I was so excited! I will be working on making some scarves for the California Chapter of the Special Olympics.
