The season is changing....

I discovered this yarn several months ago. A soft mix of wool, soya and mohair.
I ran my hand over the neat piles in their shelves.
I wondered what sort of delicate pieces would be made of such a yarn.
I thought of it once more upon finding a crochet pattern for a shawl...
Then balls of yarn lay strewn across the shelves, colours mixed, discarded balls of acrylic and feathery yarn lost from their own shelf.
Fossikers picked over the ruins, baskets laden with their gems.
It was here that each ball metamorphosed from extravagant to possible.
From $6 a ball, on sale for $2 a ball.
Hopefully I will have the beginnings of the shawl to show you soon.
