Look what I bought!

What is it? A big mess of yarn! It's actually several skeins of sport weight and novelty yarn all tangled up together. Why did I buy it? Good question!

I work at a discount store that sells lots of different things, including yarn from time to time. When I see a few tangled-up skeins in colors I like, I buy them. It's better than having them written off and thrown away. This is the biggest "mess" I've bought so far. It's going to take a lot of time and patience to untangle it, bit it'll be worth it!

Yarn doily

This was going to be a "doily rug", then I thought "A white rug might not be such a good idea". Then I thought "I'll just put it on the back of a chair to fancy it up a bit", but I'm not too happy with how the picot edges turned out. Then I thought "Why don't I just unravel it, make another doily with a different decorative edge, then put it on the back of a chair to fancy it up a bit".

Sounds good to me! :)

This is "yarn doily #1" (aka "doily rug"), made with Peaches & Creme yarn. 

This is a close-up of it.
