Of course, despite "quitting" beanies knitting business, I managed to use-up some yarns for these fun hats. One is gifted to a co-worker, one is waiting its turn.
Of course, I often ask myself - and many ask me - why do I work with wool so much if I do, indeed, live in TX for the time being. Yes, I have enough sweaters to move to Colorado, and while I do my best to give each a "whirl" at least once a year, I recognize the weirdness of those projects. However, if one held in their hands a good quality of wool yarns, was introduced to variety of them from all kind of animals and with all kinds of add-on's, and tried to knit with amazing bamboo needles, moving hands like threading soft butter, one would understand. Therefore, as my yarn collection is moving along swiftly, a couple more projects in the making. One that I take to work as it is an easy long vest for a friend's birthday from linen/silk yarn, and one for home pleasure, when I spend my mornings in a sun-lit back room, playing with wool. This particular one was re-made 4 times as soon as started, as I carefully tried different yarn combinations in style and colors. I am in the midst of knitting, but here are the yarn jumps, where white was replaced with blue then green and finally fancy soft grey with a hint of brown. :)
