I finished John’s hat. He really likes it. He always asks for beanies, but I have finally figured out he wants skull caps. I am going to size down his hats in the future, as he really likes small hats. The yarn is A Yarn to Dye For DK in their Feasting At The Farmer’s Market colorway.
I’ve been spinning this week too. I spun some silk Marilyn sent me. I loved spinning it, and look forward to spinning silk again. It was so luxurious.
I finished my Hinkley spin, and continually annoy my husband by making him look at it and then yelling “I MADE IT” in his face. He is a patient man. I also spun some gray alpaca/silk (also from Marilyn, who is amazing). The fiber was so soft I would like to create a nest for myself out of it. I have no use for a personal nest, but I would do it anyway. I also plied some leftover singles into a random skein and I like it best of all. Go figure.
I hope you had a good week. If it is cold where you are, stay warm. If it is warm where you are, please step outside and feel the warm sun on your face for me.
