  1. What a cute book! Is Marion going to do something with all that yarn?

  2. Let's just put it this way, Nellie. Most of that yarn, which we bought about two weeks ago, is nicely crocheted into blankets, scarves, hats, Barbie clothes and oh my I've lost count of what else. Thankfully, Marion has taken a short break due to the fact that her hands just can't loop one more stitch. (temporarily of course:)

  11. Dear Louise, Your post is so cute. I love the purse and especially the yarn! I crochet and knit so I can appreciate all the yards of colorful yarn. Marion must be very talented. You are lucky to have such a sweet person living with you. I hope that Marion's hands are better soon. Blessings to you both...Dottie :o)

  14. What an adorable book. You are right, that is me up one side and down the other. Granny Marion looks overwhelmed. That stash is more daunting than a page full of "No Reply" commenters. LMHO!!
    Love to you and Marion, Ginger

    1. I said hello to Marion for you Jenn and she said Hi back:) No, we are not selling that yarn, We are not even selling what Marion has already made from the yarn, which is actually almost all gone. Marion made blankets, hats, scarves, pillows and all sorts of stuff from it which she will most likely donate to the local hospital. Thank you so much for your warm regards. Marion is delighted too!
