I love getting boxes of wool in the mail!
My mom has given up on her plans to learn to spin (for the time being, anyways) since we can’t seem to get the old wheel to function properly. (My fiance picked it up at a yard sale for $20 a few years ago, but there was no footman and the whole thing is pretty shot…)
So, she sent me the roving that she had stashed away! — And also some leftover bits of Noro from her many afghan projects.
You may think that an afghan made out of Noro would be scratchy and awful, but I can tell you from experience that it’s actually very very nice. And so pretty!
On The Hooks:
I only just started crocheting, and I decided to practice by making Granny Hexagons using some of my leftover Handspun yarn. When I finished the first one I realize it looked like a wildflower and immediately imagined making an afghan that looks like a field of wildflowers…
And so now I’m knee-deep in Hexagons, OF COURSE!
