I’m not a spendthrift. In fact, I have been accused many times of being cheap. But I did order some more yarn. The Knit Picks order was just $16 thanks to some Swish colors that were on sale.
I also bought myself some aran weight handspun for my birthday. I’m debating whether to make some fingerless mitts like these or a hat like this— or maybe even a cowl like this or this. I’m open to pattern suggestions! (I have about 170 yards.) I’m not used to spending so much on one skein of yarn so I want to be sure to make something that will get a lot of wear. I’m most likely to wear a hat, but I am also likely to have a lot of unwanted leftovers. If I try a cowl, I’ll be killing two birds with one stone — trying handspun AND trying a cowl, two things I’ve been wanting to do. But there’s the risk I won’t wear a cowl. (I’m not a huge scarf wearer.) The mitts — my original choice — may be the path of least resistance (but most boredom). Again, I welcome suggestions! 🙂
