Inspiring Yarns

September 24, 2008

A while ago I found a wonderful seller on ebay who used to be a knitwear pattern designer and has a massive stash of unusual yarns which she occasionally auctions off in small lots. I find these yarns so inspiring! The small stash I have of them at the moment is still in skeins, all different yarns and lengths. Pretty colors, wools, cottons, luxe chenilles – ooo!

So last night, while talking to M on the phone, I was also winding the skeins into balls. I find this very soothing and strangely therapeutic. Here’s a pic of some balls I did last night. What will they turn into? Cats? Ponies? Vests?
