Funky Inherited Yarn

So yesterday afternoon, I sat down to work on a caterpillar idea that’s been floating around my head.

Of course the answer to such a question is always, always “yes”. But it’s disappointing to put down the exciting new caterpillar. I’ve also just discovered that I don’t have enough yarn to make all these orders, I’ve just ordered some more, I hope it comes within the week or I’ll be in trouble.
