I also have a bit of a yarn fetish as was discovered when I was packing to head west!
The colors, textures... just love 'em!
Earlier in the week, I went grocery shopping and ran some errands.
It was cold and extremely windy and seemed to go right through me.
By the time I got to the superstore I couldn't take it anymore. I picked up some fleece gloves so that I could wear them the rest of the day while I was out and about.
I decided to get some yarn (imagine that, heehee!) that would go with the gloves and make myself a basket weave hat.
I've used this pattern before but I used the wrong type of yarn so it turned out too big.
This time it turned out just right!
The yarn didn't have as much gray in it as I originally thought but it'll still work.
I wore it yesterday to tour the mine (that I'll be posting about as soon as I can sort through the 230 photos that I took yesterday!) and it worked perfect!
It's nice to work on enjoyable projects that you can end up wearing. Hmm, what will my next project be? I do have more of this type yarn in a different color... maybe another hat? Any ideas for me?
Till next time,
