Welcome to Wool on Sundays :)

Have you had a yarnful month?

Last month I was unknitting and this month I uncrocheted – but then I re-crocheted so now I have a net gain from frogging previously made items that were not getting use. Back in 2014, I started an experimental crochet project, which was fun but, despite several attempts (below), I never managed to make it into anything useful.

It last featured in the story where Granny Square unravelled the sea!

Unfortunately, she didn’t unravel all of it so I frogged the rest and, working two strands together, I crocheted a circle and made into a floor mat for our downstairs loo.

It is Drops Cotton and so it should be fairly hard wearing and last a good time. Although, I haven’t weighed it to work out how much it must have cost, I know I would never have bought the yarn to do this but as I bought it so long ago and it was languishing in a bag, I’m feeling as if it was quite a thrifty make!

If you have any yarn themed posts, I’d love you to link up. 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). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links. The next Wool on Sundays will be on Sunday 4th November.

    Oh gosh, I missed doing a post for this link up and I promised I would. I haven’t touched my project since Terry got out of the hospital but I better pick up the pace!! I had to laugh when I read your post of how to use your piece before you unraveled it. You did a great fix. But then my next though was the destruction my Min Pin would do to a mat like that when he gets mad at me. We have to keep the doors to the bathroom and bedroom closed, just in case. You never know when you will find a rug or shoe in the hall if we close him out of the living room where he barks at cats and squirrels.
