So here are a few pics of the projects I have either completed or have started for the project box. The first is this beautiful hat out of one of my fiber club shipments called Manka’s Thicket. I remember that I really enjoyed spinning this yarn. However, at only 160 yards… that does not leave a lot for a project. When I found this spiral hat that was meant for Noro I knew it was a match. I really loved watching the colors come out in this project! I actually need to take the crown out and add about another inch and reknit the decreases. It works for a child but is a tad short for an adult. I am ok with that as I have a bunch of the yarn left over and would like to use as much up as I can.
Then I hit my stash and I came up with some yarn I bought in Bayfield, WI. Bayfield is on the Superior shore of WI. The yarn is hand dyed from the sheep on Madeline Island up there. I only bought 2 skeins at the time for a total of around 320 yards…. again, not sure what to do with it. I has sat in my stash for the past 4+ years. I was going to try enterlac with it, but the color repeats were just too short. So after working with my friend Flarycka over on Ravelry, I decided to try this multidirectional diagonal scarf. I LOVE it. My husband keeps making happy noises everytime he sees the yarn…. a match perhaps?
