Taught a friend to spin today. Her slubby pretty yarn is beautiful. I miss my bulky yarns. I love watching someone spin for the first time, its so nice to be reminded that there’s all sorts of “perfect” yarn.

Finally got some good use out of this hat. Its a “mesh” crochet so not terribly warm. But it did help with the cold breeze that was giving me a headache. This was made last year with some of my own handspun yarn.

I was right this is a beast to block. I’m not sure its even blocking in the shape I want. Good thing its not permanent. Because this is a shawl shaped cowl I will need to flip it over and lightly block the back half. Luckily the back isn’t a triangle, just the petals. Phew so glad this is almost done.
