I love yarn - the textures, the colors, its fluffy softness. Sometimes I love the balls and skeins in their pure form even better than what they become when worked up with a hook or needle. All lined up, they are like pots of paint or my favorite set of colored pencils. But I also love the act of imaginative creation that yarn leads to. And here are a few of my favorite things to do with those lovely woven strands.
