Welcome to another Wool on Sundays!
Regular visitors to Rainbow Hare will know that my yarn projects tend to grow in fits and starts with as much frogging as making…This week, I was alarmed to find that seems to be spilling over into my daily life.
I wanted to send two Sewing Machine Covers to America, which you’d think should be simple enough, so I wrapped them in bubble wrap, put them in a box, wrapped the whole lot in plastic and took them the the Post Office only to be told that, although it weighed well under 1kg, which was acceptable, it was 3cm too big for the Royal Mail and Parcel Force would cost £50 or £60! When I asked which side had to be smaller, I learned it could be any side – or any combination, such as 1cm off the length and 2cm off the height…so long as each side added together came to 90cm or less!
The lady did, however, say she had some boxes I could use and, after measuring all their old boxes (the Post office is also a very small general shop) we found one I could use if I cut about 4cm off the top.
So I had to take it all home, frog the packaging, buy more Sellotape, repackage and take it back the next day.
My new crochet, by contrast, has had no frogging. I’m just going round and round, combining various odds and ends of stitches and techniques – a sort of doodling with yarn – and because I have no plan for how it turns out, it can’t go wrong so there’s no need to frog. I’d had enough of frogging for one week :o
If you have any yarn posts, with or without frogging, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). Visit anyone else who links. Wishing you a happy week :)
