Woolly Rainbow

At the end of last year, my son's kindy teacher gave me this bag of wool odds & ends, half finished crafting, finger knitting, pom-poms and knots. She asked me if there was anything I could do with it. It was a mess. Anyway, after a few hours of detangling I had this beautiful woolly rainbow.

Ummmmm.... let me see what can I do with this.
What about little rainbow baskets for little people to keep their new found treasures in ?


I think it's time to learn to crochet.
Now, I have to try and get past a chain stitch ;)

Oh what a wonderful job you have done there! Sooooooo, you wanna come and untangle mine next? LOL! We have a bag full of feather wool that a certain little puppy climbing into and had a wonderful time. I am far too scared to attempt the clean up.

The colours are stunning! Can't wait to see what you do with them! I am also learning crochet and have mastered the whole "make a square blanket" thing but now my SIL wants me to crochet her a sling! That is going to be interesting! A challenge!

Beautiful colours, it is a lovely rainbow and I am sure it will inspire you to create something special.

I'd be inclined just to keep them in a basket and look at them! But of course they are just waiting to be transformed into something stunning ...
