I am chopping at the bit to get this first project started. I hope to document the process since it seems I show the yarn…then show the finished project. If you’re a crafter like me, I believe you’ll enjoy seeing the progress. This particular project may be a WIP (work in progress) for at least a month or so. Well, let me stop chattering and get to the details.

Let’s go!

Mini Yarn Haul

 As mentioned in the video, this is the first time I’ve ordered from Willow Yarns. The color selection, as well as the prices, were exactly what I needed. The shipping was reasonable (it was free with my order) and it feels really soft.

This is all for now. Once I finish this post I’m off to figure out how to create a swatch for my new project. Hopefully the yarn candy was enough to hold you as I push up my sleeves and knit my first major swatch.
