A little while ago I made mention of a large amount of yarn that my mother managed to procure off the Freecycle in her area. I had great fun in going through it and was pleasantly surprised and amazed to discover that over half the yarn was cotton/ cotton blends and wool/ wool blends. I originally intended to leave all the acrylic yarn, since my skin generally prefers natural fibers, but then my dad said he was planning a trip to visit (since he missed a good chunk of our trip to CA) and rather than ship the yarn he could bring all of it with him.
So I have two full garbage bags full of yarns. I told the Dearliest that God keeps providing me with yarn, so He must want me to continue making stuff. Right? Right.
Today I started going through the yarn more carefully. Care to join me?
I started with the cottons and wools bag, because I like cottons and wools.
If anyone has any suggestions for the more textured/ 3 dimensional yarn, I’m all ears! Or eyes. I have no experience crocheting yarns with more texture. Also, the thinner cotton stuff is almost cord-like. Not sure what I’m going to do with that either.
Such a range of weights and I can’t wait to get my fingers in some of it! Lucky me I’m almost done with my current projects and therefore am ready to start another one or two (or three, or four…).
