I have always been the idea girl and never the finish-to-completion-before-starting-anew girl. I get really excited about starting a project, but then I usually find something new or get bored and I move on to the next thing. If I never had deadlines, I’m not sure I’d ever finish anything.
Which is why I’m happy to report that after my spinning retreat, I took one of the yarns I spun and it is now a finished object!
I present to you my Spin Cycle hat, knit out of my fauxlag yarn. Since I only had about 50 grams, I had to be really careful in choosing a project. My solution was a lacy hat on oversized needles. It turned out to be the perfect amount of yarn, I had five inches on either end to weave in ends, and that was it.
I even had enough motivation left over to finish Mom’s sock yarn:
I’m super proud of this one! 364 yards in 100 grams, 26 wraps per inch, and hopefully high-twist enough to withstand Mom hiking through Ireland on it. This is only my second time gettin a sock yarn out of four ounces, so I’m thrilled.
And after all of that, I still felt motivated to cast-on another yarn I spun from the weekend. Of course, that one’s in progress, so it could still fall victim to my curse. I’ll keep you posted!
