crazy towel thing
Ages ago, my mom sent me a tangled one pound skein of the most wildly coloured, fattest cotton yarn I've ever seen. I spent hours untangling it. Lol

I decided to cast on a towel with it and my brand new straight bamboo needles.

So pretty. Bright and cheerful. Even with the untangling, it was a wonderful thing to get from mom!

I like it and it'll be fun to knit with. You'll get to see all the colors playing with each other.

What a lovely way to put it it, and so accurate too.

It may be bright, but think how cute it will look in your DD bathroom!

I decided it is destined to be a bathroom mat. The yarn is bulky weight I think (wish I could find more kitchen style cotton in bulky! )
