Yarns I got for free!

Last month, I came upon a post at crochetville by yarnyviolet offering some free yarns to those living in Germany or U.K. I immediately asked if she could send it to my sister in London, who in turn would send it to me. Well, I didnt have to wait too long, I got it today! Thanks sis, for mailing it to me :)
And of course, thank you so much Rachel (yarnyviolet) for sending the yarns for free, your generosity is very much appreciated! I know it is quite hard to part with some or most of your yarns as you cant bring it with you on your move.


All of it is very nice. I couldnt tell so much from the photos before, but now that I have it here I can say it is all wonderful! I hardly know about yarns. I just know those are mostly boucle. I'm thinking of making bags and other accessories from it and also a knitted top (someday, I'll be able to knit myself a top!)

  4. Thanks for your comments, ladies!
    I'm fighting the urge to start a project with these cotton chenille, as I have a lot of WIPs :p
    Yasmin, I was able to upload the photo to blogger this time. I always try to, but most of the time it doesnt load.

    Hehe...I'm happy to learn that the yarns have arrived. By the way, I'm sorry about my sudden disappearance online. I was running around and making the most of the Easter break. Back to work today =)

  9. Thanks Vik! I'll probably be making some scarves from it before December.

    Hi Sis! You seem to have disappeared online, or at least on my blog :p Good to see you're back :)
