Last month I began fiddling around crocheting some little vessels. I found this solo skein of yarn in the reduced bin at Joann's and did not hesitate to buy it as I really love a self striping yarn.
It's a micro fiber yarn made by Premier Yarns (more information about it can be found here). I really love it's vibrant colors and had fun just trying it out in different ways. I experimented with crocheting a variety of vessels (one with a lid), I knit two gnomes (faces made with a different yarn) and then I taught myself how to to crochet a square and just barely had enough to finish the ninth one so I stitched them into a bigger square using thread. I had not one bit of yarn left over from these projects.
