The white chenille yarn looks interesting. It should be enough to knit or crochet up a hat.

Poncho Crochet Instructions

Poncho Crochet Instructions: "In this technique, a background fabric is stretched taut on a fra me. The working thread is held underneath the fabric. A needle with a hook is inserted downward and a loop of the working thread drawn up through the fabric. With the loop still on the hook, the hook is then inserted a little farther along and another loop of the working thread is drawn up and worked through the first loop to form a chain stitch. The tambour hooks were as thin as sewing needles, so the work must have been accomplished with very fine thread. "

Crocheting a bag or top is always fun. It is amazing how old a skill crocheting is. It is something that has been passed down from generation to generation. I love how hand crocheted and/or knitted garments look and especially how happy I am making them!

Prism

Prism: "Prism Yarn Skeins: Best for storage. Allows yarn to be relaxed until ready to use. Can be used with a Yarn Swift.
Pull Skeins: Some column_1~ Yarn manufactures will Skein their yarns in ready to use center pull skeins. Look at the yarn label to confirm. "

I have used Boa yarn to make scarfs It knits up nicely and has a different texture than fun fur yarns.

Knitted and crocheted purses are certainly in. I have felted purses but might like to try crocheting one. It would probably make a nice spring/summer bag.
