Yarn Love...Anne Shirley

What? There is a yarn called Anne Shirley? How amazing is that?

To know me is to know that I loved Anne Shirley. Kathryn, my sister would probably say Anne and I are a lot alike with our love of books and quick tempers (though we both matured nicely into more even tempered ladies).

To find there is a yarn named after her was too much!

But alas I'm over my yarn spending allotment for a few weeks. So I must wait until I've used a little more of the yarn I already have on hand. Hopefully the one site that sells it will still have it on hand when I have yarn money again.

Yarn Love has yarns called Diana, Elizabeth Bennet, Marianne Dashwood, Charlotte Bronte, Joan of Arc, Scarlett O'Hara, Juliet, Cleopatra, and Amy March.

Eventually I'll want to collect Diana, Elizabeth, Marianne, and Amy...but first I must collect Anne.

BTW, I don't just want the yarn for the name, its also really nice yarn too. Plus look at these colors!

Too bad my birthday is like 10 months away, but consider it a hint for when I turn the big 3-0. 


  1. I love Anne Shirley, too--I've read all the Green Gables books (and the New Moon ones, about Emily) multiple times. I liked Emily a little better, because she actually became a writer. The color is great!! Good for you for sticking to your budget. I just spent $115 at the running store this weekend, and that was with a $10 coupon and a 10% discount....

  2. Yeah, I just spend another $60 on yarn yesterday...also with a coupon. I need to use a little of it now before adding.

    BTW...congrats on finishing your run!!!
