On the Wheel
This past weekend while I was touching yarn, I came across some roving that I have drooled and drooled over for months. This time the roving caught me with cash in my pocket and it won.
I knew the roving would win me over at some point - it is green, it is soft and squishy, it is merino, and it was only $10. So it was inevitable.
I started spinning it right away. And let me add it is very difficult to photo graph.
I have been spinning it rather fine, and I plan to do either a two or three ply. Probably only a two ply because that is about all I have patience for really.
The problem I am having is that I have no project for this yarn. I realize that may not seem like a real problem, but I usually don't purchase yarn or fiber without a project in mind.
I don't need any hat, mittens, gloves, or scarves so that type of accessory is out. I already have a french press cozy (made with my first ever hand spun), and I won't have enough for a cardigan. I really want to knit a kitty doll, but I have no one to give it to and I don't really want it to be green. I don't know, maybe a bag? Thoughts?
