Surprise freecycle stash score
I responded to a local freecycle post last week, where a woman was freecycling a bag of yarn that she inherited from her grandmother. She said she would never use it, and didn't want to throw it out. I assumed it was probably a bunch of acrylic or acrylic blends, so I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. Now I need to figure out what to MAKE with all of this lovely wool!

I need two posts to make all the pictures because one isn't enough!

Seriously amazing find! Both the yarn and the swift!

If you would like some free green wool for that boy's hat Ayla, I can hook you up. I have some lovely bright green stuff in a DK weight. I think there's enough here to make a full winter set (mittens, hat, scarf). PM me with your addy if you wants it!

Thanks wynnie! This kid is five and I'm sure the hat is going to be muddied or lost or both very quickly, so acrylic is actually better, but I'll take the wool anyways.

I think Ayla's new nickname should be "Monty Haul".
