stash

Most of you know I have a weakness for string, so when Kemps had boxes of turquoise twine on offer, I was powerless to resist.


I already have single balls of turquoise, red and purple, purchased locally. What I hadn't realized was that this is in fact crochet thread, made from hemp and linen. I don't crochet (yet?), but am happy to use it for tying up parcels and other decorative purposes. After all, it looks like string to me.

I also 'trumped' a batch of crochet thread in oxfam once - I use it to make my tags, and as you say tie up parcels etc - lovely quality as is 100percent cotton. Your stash has a fantastic colour! Cx

Yeah - I've go some crochet stuff too. But it's pink and I prefer your turquoise. Although with Valentines Day approaching, perhaps I should bust it out.

You could knit with it too I suppose, especially with the other colours. I use ribbon for tying up parcels... and then try and grab the ribbon back after!! It's recycling! At least that's my excuse.
