So I dyed up some Merino wool in what was supposed to be kelly green. It was a new-to-me dye and I thought that it'd make a good Christmas yarn. But it was more neon than I thought it'd be and I decided maybe it wasn't so good for a Christmas yarn. So it sat for a while alongside some wool that I dyed brighter pink than I intended.
One night I took some of this neon green wool & spun it really thin. Then I took some more and spun it thick and thin. And I took some bright pink and spun it thick and thin. Then I plied each of them with the really thin green.
I measured V's noggin and knitted a small swatch out of the pink/green to figure out how many stitches to cast on and then I knitted her a hat. When I got done, I decided it needed something at the top, so I spun some more thinnish yarn from the leftover green and made a pom.
The rest of the green wool, I spun as a regular thick & thin and put it in my shop. It's just a tiny skein - about enough for a border for another hat. The pink is still sitting. Not sure what I'll do with that.
I also finished my Good Luck Cowl the other night. Love it!
Also, here's one answer to the question people ask me all the time - what can I make with one skein of that thick & thin yarn besides baby knits? Jennifer Kelley has a great pattern that uses it, called Beautiful Dawn. She made it with some of my yarn & I think it's just gorgeous.
Next for me I'm going to do a thick and thin with this.
And I've already spun some supercoils out of it for the border.
Another hat, I'm thinking. Maybe some new gloves, as the ones I knit her last year no longer really fit. I like the brights for Miss V - they really fit her personality!
