Last night I finished my yarn chicken project. I won.
A friend recently went to the US to spend Thanksgiving with her family. As she always does, she went to Goodwill (thrift store) to see what was there. She has found some great yarn there over the years. At the moment, I am wearing a sweater I made from a giant cone of yarn she brought back for me a few years ago. I still have some of that left. This time she found 10 balls of a superbulky superwash wool yarn that she wants me to use to make her a jumper (sweater). Incredibly, she found 8 hanks of merino wool yarn in purple--my favourite colour! Also, there was a ball of green superwash wool and a coppery coloured ball of wool/silk/cashmere yarn. Fun! I am pretty sure I know how I am going to use all of it. I started with the wool/silk/cashmere. It is so squishily soft. I had 120 yards of it and decided to play a little yarn chicken. Fingerless gloves seemed like a good use of the yarn. I use those a lot because my wrists ache in chilly weather and these would feel so nice when I wear them. Would I have enough yarn? I decided to try it and see.
I had just a tiny bit of yarn left:
