/relentless periwinkle yarn


What seems like ages ago (2001?), I purchased multiple skeins of Caron Wintuk yarn in 'deep periwinkle'. 100% acyrlic, 100% terrifying. While the exact number of skeins purchased remains a mystery, I am sure that it was at least three too many.

I began work on a self-designed sweater (not a fantastic idea for a 2nd crochet project), which remains far from complete about 8 years later.

Last month I decided to pick up the hook for the first time since, this time teaching myself a wider variety of stitches. I used one skein of the Deep Periwinkle Wonder practicing different stitches, getting back into the swing of the craft.

While grateful I didn't need to buy practice project yarn, Deep Periwinkle Wonder refuses to disappear, and now strains my eyes much like a strobe-neon yellow.

Here's how I've used it so far (with plenty still in the yarn basket):
