Not quite what I had in mind.


I didn't expect this handspun to be so... stripey. And we all know how much I love horizontal stripes. Can't really find it in me to care, though. The colors are pretty and it's a relaxing knit and to hell with it. It's practice spinning. (The colors aren't quite right in the photo, either. Some of those stripes that look medium blue are actually a screaming pink-purple.)

Otherwise it's been a slow couple days around here (evidence above; I started knitting this thing on Sunday and it's almost to the arm pits). Slow is good.

Slow is underrated. I finally have enough handspun yarn to knit something with. I don't have enough for a sweater but I was thinking some nice felted coasters might be good. There are lots of overspun parts in there but I think I might be able to work around them.

Let's turn that curse around. May you live in slow, uninteresting times.

Does it really count as 'stripey' when it's a random yarn pattern...nahh... I don't buy it. (The slow times are the sweetest, sometimes:-)
