Useless?

Yes. The balls of wool were just languishing in the drawer not doing anything in particular, just there.
Unused?  Yes, I kept passing them over in favour of better colours, larger amounts, better feel.
But …


now I've been using them up in my latest blanket, I can't get enough of them. I keep hunting out more yarn to use and foraging through different cupboards and baskets in the hope of finding the odd ball. (I didn't put 'or two' because it sounded quite rude!)

I've been using them in not particular order. When one ball runs out another takes its place and it makes for a rainbow coloured blanket.

Is it turquoise?


or green?


or pink?


or red?


Is it white?


It's growing fast and is going to be very heavy because I'm using a large hook and 3 strands of wool.


So is the wool useless or unused?

No, not now.


I think I shall call it my 'Useless/useful blanket'.
