Experimental Granny

What does one do with the first batches of yarn one creates from the beginning of her spinning odyssey? This was the question I pondered as I rifled through the box that contained all of my first spinning experiments. After much contemplation I took up my P hook and started working with the chunky cakes o' yarn. In a matter of hours I had worked up this little diddy...



Definitely not the largest shoulder warmer I've made, but it shows off the chunk-y-delic yarn quite nicely and the overall drape is good.

Some detail...



Feels good to do some stash busting! And now I have room in my homespun box for more ChezLinoleum fiber-y goodness!!

Of course you know this. I cannot say this too often...."Granny Squares are the Building Blocks to Fashion."

You've created a very fashionable wrap! Great colors.
