Here is what I got!
|Baby yarn from Freecycle|
I am so thankful for good and caring people who are willing to give away their own material goods to benefit others. I posted about Freecycle previously and here's proof of the site's value.
This yarn was from one response! I had another respondent who gave me a full trash bag of wool yarn. I will not use the wool, but I am going to give it to my 92 year old grandmother's 98 year old friend who crochets all day long!
See...if you learn to crochet, you could live well into your 90's! YouTube is a great place to start. You can find so many how-to videos there.
Crochet Geek is a YouTube video series which comes to mind. She shows step-by-step instructions about learning to crochet, http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2008/09/blog-post_03.html. She also shows different stitches and projects. Leave me a comment letting me know if you try any of them along with a photo of your finished project.
Have a great weekend!
