I have been buying new materials in order to try new things out. These two big cones of rug wool are the gems of my stash. I love the thickness and weight (over two kilos) but can´t make up my mind how to use them well enough.
A little stash of little bit thinner yarn but also my all time favourite because of the colour palette and quality. R´s grandmother keeps on bringing me knotted discounted skeins of this yarn in colours I would never find myself picking up without her assistance.
I have been recycling old sheets by tearing them into shreds and sewing them together one after another. For future rag rugs.
I keep wool for mittens in a cupboard at hand and because it looks so beautiful. I try not to hide yarns because they would be left untouched that way for ages and it can turn into a habit. I´d love to have a huge stash but can´t afford to have one. No endless possibilities but less cluttered home instead.
These piles can be found around the house though. Textile industry leftovers I re-use in rugs. Genious material and very affordable.
I collect the odds and ends in this basket. Not sure why but it seems important.
Well, good weekend for all of you! I´ll be staying home all by myself, today watching Woody Allen theme night on the tv and warping for something new tomorrow. Looking forward!
