split yarn: spoiled!

split yarn: spoiled!

New yarn stores- help, I am uncontrolled when I walk into a new yarn shop. Should I say it is like a child in a toy or candy store? I am impressed that you did NOT buy any yarn- but there is always next time!

The 1000 yards of the loden green wool yarn should knit up nicely. I have a nice afghan pattern to use for it. If I do not knit too large an afghan the 1000 yards should be enough. Of course the pattern I use to knit it will have some effect on the yardage I will need.

Might be interesting to try the filet crochet pattern. Hopefully the instructions for this crocheted afghan are simple to follow.
