What do you call your yarn balls? Do you know of another ball or hank type that I’ve missed? I LOVE hearing from you guys.
For my part I was surprised with donut-ball and cake – even I realize that there are some difference ;o)

My beautiful orchid in a bloom… such inspiration and pure eye candy!!
I wish to find a yarn company that would offer such a choice of shades of green and pink, or better to say – a palette as DMC threads have ;o)
Have a wonderful and lovely weekend!!
