I have a confession to make - I'm a bit of a sucker for wool. Especially the pure stuff with nothing manmade added. So I have been collecting from charity shops mainly but anywhere where I can find previously loved pure new wool as I have this urge to give it a new home!
I have recently taken up crochet again and I am making a multicoloured square throw for my daughter using my re-homed wool and I just love the idea that I'm making it from wool that has had a previous (if unused) life. I'm sure this must sound odd but somehow I imagine that all these wools will be brought to life again in the lovely multicoloured throw. The colours of the pure wool are softer, richer and have a more natural feel as opposed to the harsher and brighter colours of the manmade fibres.I got fed up rummaging around in my large bag for the required colour, when I remembered that I had this basket tucked away in the garage and it works beautifully - I can see all the colours easily- as long as I keep the colours in their allocated areas!
Tomorrow I will post pictures of the throw I have started. In the meantime its time to get the crochet hook on the move again.
