I have just discovered something that is so much fun it is ridiculous. I was looking around for variegated [now called multicolor] yarn to make the sleeper suits for my little baby dolls. I wanted to find all three colors in the same yarn because I'm determined to have them look as much alike as possible. The colors are pink, lavender and green. Well, what to my wonderment, there it was and large skeins, too, so I wouldn't have to worry about how much to buy. And guess what!! it was SOCK yarn. By just twiddling around a little bit I have managed to create an actual design with these little bits and fragments of color that mysteriously appear as I'm going alone. I love it.
So you certainly CAN teach an old dog new tricks!!
I shared this with all my crocheting blogs in Yahoo because I am continually amused at some of the things these young and inexperienced crocheters get all het up about!! They are so intent and serious, bless their hearts. So sweet. I guess I remember being upset about those things too....but not really....too long ago. Anyway, I thought it would tickle all of them to see that I can learn something still........as well as laugh at the idea that I had no idea there was such a thing as SOCK YARN.
