I promised A that I wouldn’t buy anymore yarn until I had emptied MOST of the 3 XL vacuum bags I had full of various yarns I had collected over the past 2 years. At last count I had over 250 balls! With that, I decided to start my Mandala Madness (by Helen Shrimpton).

You might have spotted my Mandala Madness on Instagram or Ravelry and thought- “Hmm… I like that colour combination!” So I thought it was only fair that I let you know which yarns I used and when.
