Some Yarns are Worth Keeping!

As I have been destashing and selling and giving away yarns, 'un-knitting' poor design choices, some yarns are worth keeping.  This Irish wool was given to me.  It is a bit elderly, but is 100% wool and has a kind of Irish heritage - just like me.  It had been knitted up and pulled out.  So I re-skeined it and washed the yarn. 

Guess what?  It's kind of nice!  Creamy, much softer.  Still a bit rustic.  Still with a knot or two.  But all in all, a yarn that deserves another chance.  Not sure what it will become, so the possibilities are open.  I've been thinking about working on my Fair Isle skills, so this could become part of that collection.
