I've made a lot of new crochet gorgeousness since November, mostly as Christmas gifts and mostly in quite cheerful colours.This has also meant that My Scrap Yarn Ball (which I haven't quite got round to telling you about) has not only grown enormously but has taken on a wonderful multicoloured exterior which would put Joseph's Coat of Many Colours to shame. It's made from all of those tiny scraps of yarn which are left over when I've finished a project. Each little scrap is carefully knotted to the next and rolled into a ball. It sits on the shelf next to me in my favourite corner, waiting for me to add the next little scraps to it and makes me smile at it's cheerfulness. I almost don't want to crochet in dark colours at the moment because I know that all those little bits of yarn which I carefully knot together and add religiously to my ball will change all of that vibrant, clashy-coloured chaos which I adore.
I think it also looked pretty good at the beginning of last year when I first started it though, so maybe those dark winter colours won't look too bad curling round it after all.
One day I will make something with it but right now I can't bear to 'cos I love my scrappy ball so much. :)
