In the event that you intend to use this type of yarn for roses, please try to make *frogging unnecessary, as this does not work with this type of yarn.
According to the shop owner, who I believe was British (and I just can't get enough of the British, too) *frogging is unraveling or undoing. The tiny little soft hairs cause all sorts of havoc, but is is so worth the final outcome. :-)
I don't even know why I am making them or what they will be, all I know is that...
I can't stop 'til I get enough!

I tried it out for a jog and it works!!!
The illusive yarn ball and crochet hook!
(I ran five miles in 25 minutes...and if you believe that I have some ocean front property, for sale, in Arizona, from the front porch you can see the sea. ;-) )
But what I like best about Linda: she would rather crochet than to do
housework and I'm all about that!
Makes us kindred, for sure. :-) and speaking of kindred... look at this beauty from Sandy at Teacup Lane
She calls it the Moonlight Pillow Cover.
