I checked the status of my package from JoAnns yesterday and it looks like it might arrive this week. I took for granted being able to go to Michael's or Hobby Lobby whenever I wanted before I moved to Germany. Oddly enough there was a JoAnns in my hometown also but I never shopped there. Other than occasional purchases of cotton yarn from some local German stores, I've depended on Joanns online for all my yarn purchases I only wish that they were more like Amazon where my packages usually get here within a week. Waiting around for a month or two is slightly ridiculous.
Here are some potholders I have been working on this past week. They were both made with Bernat Handicrafter yarn.
And here are some washcloths I made with the same yarn that will be donated to Bridge and Beyond
