I have been spinning like crazy, but unfortunately I had yet to have enough finished yarn to actually consider making anything with it. Until recently.
I ordered this yarn from a great etsy seller, Lime Green Jelly. Unfortunately, my camera does not do justice to the colors in this fiber. I'm not sure why, but I even love the green in it. Which is a huge surprise since I usually HATE green.
On Christmas morning I decided to cast on "The One Day Beret" by Kirsten Kapur for Through The Loops! I had been wanting to make a beret for a long time, and the colors in this yarn seemed a perfect fit for this beret. And to be able to finish it in one day suits my desire for instant gratification. I'm hoping to be able to wear it tomorrow.
Over the last few weeks there have been many ups and downs in my life. Nothing I'm going to bore you with here. But I will say that thanks to my friends, my spinning wheel, the loads of fiber I've accumulated, and the knitting I do at work, I'm making it through what's left of this year.
To say spinning has become an obsession is a great understatement of what my life has become. Now to figure out what to do with the hand-spun I've created. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
There has also been knitting, but I don't have any pics yet. I'll try to get some taken to share before the weekend is over.
