I haven’t done any spinning in quite awhile, so after work tonight I grabbed my wheel and spun up the rest of the piece of ripping that was on my bobbin. Needs must find where I stashed more of that wool. I’ve forgotten what plans, if any,I had for the yarn. Still,I like the colors.
I followed the pattern for the top, improvised the bottom, and added a shamrock as a hanging tail.
Played around a bit with making up a hat, but wasn’t satisfied with the results. So after multiple froggings, I hopped on Ravelry and found this great pattern. Loving it so far, the textural 3D quality, and working in a spiral rather than joining each round.
Mom and Dad sent me money, along with some other gifts. This is my first purchase with holiday money. Can’t wait to dig in!
