Moon Flowers

I was at my LYS the other day and in the clearance bin was this interesting, colorful yarn.


I was drawn to it right away. Loved the colors and texture, and 60% off the price sure helped too!


With not a lot of yardage per skein and with such an interesting texture I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Then I thought it would be cute to make flowers and embellish some baby hats. I can picture them now… should be cute! Some craftiness is finally coming back. YEY!
