All of us crocheters follow trends whether we realize it or not. We follow it because we are continuously buying yarn throughout each season. Have you ever noticed the store shelves are packed with specific colors during each season? And I think we have all experienced the evasive skein of yarn in the color we need, but cannot find at the local yarn shop. It all boils down to the color trend for the season.
With the color trend information available to us, maybe we can start planning ahead this year. Planning can be painful, but this time it will be exciting. We can make a list of all the yarn we need and the colors we desire and plan to purchase MORE YARN when the colors are available! Yes, I said it. We now have a better excuse to buy MORE YARN! Your loved ones jaws will drop when you tell them why you need to buy more yarn now verses later. What counter argument can they give us to this logic?
