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.

Wool on Sundays – 146 (Growing Slowly)

Welcome to October’s Wool on Sunday! I don’t have any nice new yarn finishes to share so I thought I’d start this post with a photo of one of my trusty knitting companions – Poppy of the beautiful ears!

The dubious green cardigan has grown but, despite my claims in my last Wool on Sundays post, it has not been a September finish.

I have been trying to cram all my working info into the edge of a lace chart (I won’t decode because it’s not the greatest system!) but now I’ve got it all onto one needle it should become more portable and pick up speed.

Meanwhile, I did have a prettier finish this month.

Truth to tell, I have been sorely tempted to embark on more new and pretty projects but I am resolved to do nothing whatsoever else with yarn until the green cardigan is finished. Do you get tempted to start new things halfway through a project?

On a cheerier note, we have lots of apples :)
