Yarn Balls

I'd be lying if I said I had anything to do with this fall collection - I started this project headed in a completely different direction.

Completely. Different.

That idea failed miserably.

But while cleaning up the mess from the failed project I started winding the yarn I was working with into balls.

Then I realized I loved the texture. So I kept winding.

And winding...

Until I had a bowl full of these fabulous fall colors in delightful textures.

The yarn is 100% wool, so I felted a few of the balls. I thought I was going to felt all of them... but my goodness it took FOREVER. So I decided to keep some of them just wound up and had some felted.

I can't stop looking at this bowlful of yarn...

Not sure why I'm loving it so much, but I'm not going to fight it. I'm just going to go with it...

Sometimes you find the project, and sometimes it finds you.
