A couple of years ago, my grandmother and I went yo-yo crazy. My 'Mimi' is very competitive, and she would actually call me late in the evenings to tell me how many yo-yos she had just finished and check on my progress. We never finished them into anything until a few months ago. Mimi, who has always been into crochet, began making doilies with the yo-yos. I really like them. She likes to mix all the colors together, so I sorted the combinations I liked into plastic baggies for her!

What a neat idea to finish off the yo-yos. Seeing yours brings back memories of the ones that my mother loved to make.

Hi Michele,
The pictures of our work are very nice. I've been making lots of yo-yos. How many do you have made? Love,
