Many Mushrooms

As often happens when working on a scrap project, I have plenty of some shades and not nearly enough of others, so I’ve pulled some skeins from my stash to fill the largest gaps.

The most unusual is Mary Maxim’s All Seasons ‘Tweed’, which I recently got at Sal’s for 50 cents (half-price sale).

It’s not really a tweed at all, having no slubs or flecks, but rather a marled yarn made of different colored strands twisted together. Two of its four plies are cream and each of the other two have looong neutral color changes, perfect for mushrooms!

Less interesting, but no less necessary, are RHSS ‘Coffee’ (dark brown) and ‘Cafe’ (light brown).

Thanks to these three new yarns I’ve finished crocheting all of what I call my
‘dark’ mushrooms.

I’ve just started making light ones.

I’m happily using up many light scrap balls!

These sizable scrap balls of Red Heart Super Saver ‘Aran Fleck’ would have been more than enough if I only wanted to crochet squares, but finding a matching six-ounce skein in stash has made it an interesting candidate for granny’s border or lattice.

BTW – I would call this yarn a tweed because, true to its name, ‘Aran Fleck’ is loaded with black, grey, brown and tan flecks!
