I thoroughly sorted through my huge pile of handspun limiting myself to things I am excited about knitting with right now.
One basketful, thankyouverymuch.
Then I got the knitting spinner’s paralysis, “If I use it, it will be gone.” “What if I make the wrong thing with it?” etc, etc.
Then my daughter came to my recuse yesterday. The teen proclaims, ” I want several slouchy hats for this fall.” Then reaches into my basket of precious handspun and says, “I like these”, choosing 3 singles yarns.
When any teenager asks you to knit, you know the window of opportunity is short. I quickly flipped through my stitch dictionaries and have a swatching plan. School starts on September 4 and she’d, “really, really, really, I love you mommy” like them by then.
On my mark, get set, go!
