I had a hat I wanted to make, and some yarn I wanted to use. They actually worked together too.
The only problem is that it was a crochet pattern. I can crochet fine, that wasn't the problem. The problem was that I can knit while I watch tv or movies. I can only crochet if it's a tv show or movie that has a lot of dialogue - not one where I have to keep looking up to see what's happening. So, I started.
I even thought about making this hat the contest prize, but then I realized it was becoming child sized, as the yarn was just a bit on the thin side.
Eventually I did finish the hat.
...and then I had someone almost immediately claim it.
(That's the hat on Curly's head)
I had also been working on some spinning. I had a batt I was gifted, and a spindle I had bought back in November. I finally used the spindle and the batt is now gone. I still need to measure this yarn though.
(It's only one skein - two pictures so I could see both the front and the back)
