they grow up so fast!

My yarn babies have grown! They are now a 100 strong, and growing daily. It’s a lot of fun to watch their progress :)




They’re usually moving around my house in one large group, but sometimes they like to be with their own kinds. That’s when they travel in stacks ;)



All these tiny yarn babies have now grown into yoddlers; I can’t wait till they’ve become proper yarnagers, or yadults even!

Until they mature, all I can do is marvel at all their delicious colours and soft skins…



If only they would raise themselves, that would be a major time saver for me! ;) But I’m afraid I’ll have to help them grow bigger and bigger, by feeding them yarn according to a strict colour diet. They’re being fed Scheepjes yarn, Cotton 8 to be precise. They are very hungry though, so I’m feeding them double strands. Surely that’s why they grow up so fast! ;)

  12. Oh this post has given me a big smile! What sweet little bundles of joy – I swear I would frame the photo of them all lined up in pretty rows, it would make an artistic image for the wall! The colours are just wonderful, it would be nice if they stayed babies forever, but you will enjoy watching them grow, and I can’t wait to see what they look like all grown up! Chrissie x

  13. Very nice! I was wondering: how do you predict how many wool you need for a big project like this? I’m making a cushion cover and in a few days to come I have to go back to the shop for the third (!) time because I’m running out of wool.

  14. These are so cute – what gorgeous colors!

  15. Lovely colors, looks like a coin rug pattern I saw years back in a craft magazine.
