This hat that I finished knitting today makes 40, FORTY, 4-0 knit by me so far this year for my Fall shows. The yarn was hand dyed and hand spun by a woman I know from my old guild. It's a bit tangly and twisty so it made me a bit cranky when I knit with it, a little bit like the cranky woman who spun it.
While I used up all of the skein, I have another one with even more yardage. I'm bound and determined to knit it up and be done with it. I washed the first hat with the usual Head n Shoulders w/Conditioner in the bathroom sink. It did release some extra dye and now it's drying outside over the top of a large peanut butter jar.
It's nice to be home for the night and not have to rush off somewhere. Now I'm off to find a project to use up 139 yards of crankiness.
P.S. Happy Birthday Joyce!!
