Almost at the end of April's A-Z Blogging Challenge. We're on Y and Y is for yearning for yarn. Why would anyone--sane or otherwise-- yearn for yarn? Why don't you ask a crocheter or knitter?They certainly will tell you.
|Ain't he cute?|
Oh, but crocheters love yarn, all sorts...even Crooked Yarn! Did you know yarn can be used to make comfy-cosy blankies for pets? Ask Marie Anne who spends loads of her time crocheting for pets and their humans who might care to purchase her lovely yarn creations for gift-giving or for themselves.
|Is it just me or is it really hot today?|
We also love those who make it possible for there to even be yarn. Who would that be? None other than adventurous folks like those at Wooly Acres. Sheep, you see, grow a fleece so lovely, soft and warm that humans--crocheting ones in particular-- wish to use the wool for making scarves, blankets and hats.
|Sans the heavy coat, it's all cool and restful|
|Marie's bright dishcloths make washing dishes fun...almost?|
|How she do that?|
Lots of Crochet Stitches constantly shows the sundry ways to use yarn, from the classic to the imaginative.
MJ--crocheter extraordinaire--ventures every once in a while into the garden for yarn inspiration. Clever MJ uses yarn to crochet flowers and posies. She creates a garden which never fades away. Nifty, huh?
|Flowers every where!|
I've even gone so far with this love for yarn, that I refuse to part with it even when the item I made is no longer useful...the yarn still is and can be recycled. Yes, I confess I reuse yarn! I made my cute crocheted ponytail holders with re-purposed yarn and they were fun to make and to use.
|Gotta have yarn!|
So you can plainly see why there is a constant yearning for yarn around here. We simply must have it. We must create with it. There just is no such thing as too much yarn! Keeps our fingers nimble and our hearts happy, yarn does. You ought to try it yourself.
