Ok, so today we are going to talk balls.

The above basket is my odd ball basket. This is the balls left over from old projects or just random balls that I have purchased over the years. Once this stash is empty, I promised myself that I would no longer purchase acrylic yarn - life is too short to be wasted on acrylic, I will only buy wool or cotton or other natural fibres. I also promised myself, that I would in future, only buy Australian yarn (if possible).
These balls are a recent purchase (from here), I think they will make either cute dresses or skirts for baby Laney.
In saying that they would make a cute skirt, I of course decided to knit her a jumper!
This purple is a 4ply cotton... not sure what I will make with it yet, perhaps some balls or baubles for the kiddies.
This bunch of yarn is what I just received in the mail. The green & brown is for a cardigan (for me) with perhaps a red & white stripe..maybe. I bought more yarn than needed because it is a 'one-off' run of wool, so instead of running out in the middle of a project, I will in fact have too much that I can then make the either Joe or Laney something with the left-overs.


  1. i have one of those baskets full of yarn too. :)
    happy knitting
