WOYWW Upcycling Experiments

Last night I remembered several part-balls of speciality yarn DD1 gave me, left over from last year's scarf Christmas pressies, and decided to play.  The rings are 4" across, and I sat up in bed winding them round - as you do!! Quite pleased with the effects, and once embellished, they will go in the box, for sale.

The second one is in scrummy traditional Christmas red and green

Not clear here, but the above is a fab Spring mixture.

Waiting for inspiration for the others, when they're fully wound.

I'll use any remaining yarn to do smaller wreaths, on 2" wooden curtain rings.

The final WIP will become clear next week, when it's (hopefully) finished in time for DD2's 31st birthday (just in case you're reading this, Kate!) xx

Posting this over at Mrs. D's so, time for a cuppa and see what everyone else has been up to, there.

Love for now, Chris xx

  3. Hi
    This is my first time at WOYWW and I hope you don't mind me looking around your blog while I am here.

    1. Hi Ria - welcome to WOYWW and thanks for visiting my blog. I had to smile, seeing you live in Clacton. I've got very happy memories of lots of summer hols spent in Jaywick - it always seemed like going abroad, travelling from the East End in Dad's old banger! Mum now lives in Southend, and I'll be popping down from Worcester for a few days, at the weekend. Hope to see you around in blogland x

  4. Lovely wreaths, they just look so touchable! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  5. Hi Lori - I've visited your blog and left a message. x

    Happy Crafting!
