With my fiber funk over the last couple of weeks, I have not finished spinning the second skein of Aspen, so I had to leave my quasi-commissioned piece waiting patiently at home and bring my designated hitter to Minneapolis with me this week.
mentioned it. I am making this nightcap with yarn taken from an old favorite sweater.
I have just started the decreases. They are every third round so this hat will have a very long "peak" that should flop over and reach near the shoulder when finished.
Also, now that I'm beyond the lacey portion, I am using up the smaller balls of yarn. There will be a lot of ends to weave in, but this way I reserve the larger balls for an eventual pair of socks.
I am ready for spring. It has been very spring-like at home in Colorado (even if it doesn't look like it this morning). It is still very much winter in Minnesota. So I am resorting to baseball metaphores to get me through. ;-)
Please be certain to head over to Wisdom Begins in Wonder and give all of the Fiber Artists there some comment luv. Happy Fiber Arts Friday and Think Spring!
