Fancy wools and threads

I have had fun making bags, scarves and decorations from fancy threads.  I made my sister a scarf for Christmas from glittery, colour changing yarn, a light weight decorative scarf.  She liked it and now my mum wants one, so I will be making one for her too.  It is surprisingly soft and warm though being lacy.

I have also had fun making bags from some of the very furry wool.  They feel very soft and are lovely to stroke, and look very different from the normal wool you find in shops.   They are very different to crochet with as the stitches are harder to see.  The finished result is worth it and makes a lovely finished product.  

There are some lovely yarns out there, worth trying to work with, with some patience sometimes.  I have only used them for crochet, not knitting.   Knitting with them I am sure will produce lovely items as well.
