Okay, I have to confess that since learning the knit nearly 3 years ago I have amassed quite a bit of wool. So much so I no doubt have many years of wool requirements. The main reason I have so much is when I first started buying I just bought what I liked, then I bought thicker wool as it was easier to work with, and the colours I wanted for the scraves I was knitting. Then I moved on to crochet and needed to buy thinner, smoother wool, and again the colours I wanted for the blankets.
This is my main basket, which contains the wool for the crocheted blanket I’ve been working on for far too long. Really need to get going with it and get it finished before Winter. The wool…
and the blanket…
And another basket with wool ready and waiting for when I learn how to crochet granny squares. I tried to buy enough of different colours so I won’t run out.
The bag is the wool I just had to buy in Bowral and the scarf I started to crochet….way back in January…I will take this away at Easter as it will be an easy project to work on while in the car or while chatting.
And just when you thought you’d seen it all….the BIG basket of wool that hides out in the laundry.
And you know the crazy thing – I need to buy more as I want to make a scarf for Christy to go with this gorgeous beanie and I just don’t have the right colours for it!!!
As I was writing this post I realized the REAL crazy part of buying a knitted beanie when I have ALL this wool just waiting to be used. To be honest I did say in the shop I could knit one myself but I’ve only knitted one beanie so far and it didn’t look as good as this :-).
