Yopping 46 - Yarn chicken ftw!
This week was all about the edging of the baby blanket. Having only 77 gms left I kept weighing what was left, and how far I had to go and my math skills came into play big time.
I finished with less than 1 gm of yarn leftover. Yarn chicken? I WON!
101 pattern repeats - 1212 rows of knitting.
AND I even got it on the blocking mat on Saturday afternoon.
I started a slouchy hat for myself with some beautiful alpaca yarn I got as a present from my eldest sister this week.
This is my second start because my first start was going to be much too big so I frogged it and cast on 18 fewer stitches.
I finally started spinning the 50 gms of hemp I bought over a year ago. It spins like butter - so smooth - which surprised me as I thought it would be like spinning butcher's twine (which is why I think I put off spinning it for so long)
Now I can start to re-focus on my Iona squares. It has been too long.
And my Dizzy sweater is feeling left out too. I won't forget her either.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you who mother. May the force be with you.
