Back to fifth grade. I remember all the girls had their wooden spool at recess trying to make their chain longer and longer. We would stand by the wall of the school and unroll our knitting to see whose was the longest.
I have kept mine all these years and I still have some yarn to add to it. The yarn itself has some sentimentality to it as I had gotten it out of my mom's crocheting basket, leftovers from projects she had made us.
|The wooden spool. Someone had given me a package of stickers back then and I put one on the spool. My question is why would someone give a child a sticker that says 'Stupid Ann Award' ?|
|Rolled out like a rug. This is on my cutting table which measures 36 inches across. Gives a good look at how large this has gotten over the years.|
|I sometimes think I should just quit this project, put it in a shadow box like this with the spool still attached. After almost 50 years, I'm still thinking on this.|
|Rolled back into a ball, ready to put away until |
I am in the mood to continue on with the chain or frame it.
