As luck would have it, a friend of mine was cleaning out her craft room recently and came across some yarn she didn't want. She asked me if I wanted it, and I said, "sure! You can never have too much yarn!" I didn't realise until she showed up at my door how much "some" was. I stand corrected: you can have too much yarn. There's got to be at least twenty pounds of yarn there. Sitting in bags in my already overcrowded living room.
We can't afford to redecorate right now, so I need to work with what we've got. I've decided to start small. We have a really ugly ottoman. It's a sort of dirty green (the colour... it's not actually that dirty) blob, and the kids love to sit on it. It's actually great to have as extra seating... but it's just so ugly.
I'm going to try and use some of this yarn to crochet a cover for this hideous ottoman and begin to solve two problems at once.
|This is merely the tip of the yarn iceberg.|
It's either going to turn out really great and I'll post pictures, or it'll be awful and you'll never hear about it again. Wish me luck!
