Yesterday, I started a new project! When I buy yarn and knit up garments, I plan what outfit they are going to be for and what they would pair well with. How do I make my yarn 'pop'? Sometimes, when I plan these outfits (that take such a looong time to make) I just think, wow, that's a LOT of knitting. How much is too much? Right now, I do not know. We will be going into the great beyond that is the knitting world outside of scarves, together. Scarves are probably the first thing anyone learns when they knit, and scarves can be so diverse! When I'm knitting--and let me tell you know, I am a lazy knitter--I place the hank around my neck, like an infinity scarf, to pull my yarn from. Saves tangles, saves time! Ha ha ha...
So! Last night I was working on my witchy outfit. So far, I have two clothing items prepared for said outfit--a green cowl with silver rescue buttons, and a black hood. The hood still has a lining that I need to finish, and I have another part of a garment that is to be revealed, but last night I had a revelation and dropped everything for the rest of the night. I was sitting, looking at my little spinning area--which is not very professional at all. I sit on the floor, by the plug, with my little tiny wheel on the carpet, a pouf behind my back to lean on, my box of tools behind my wheel and all my fluff in the box to the left. I was looking at my bags of sheep's tails ( colourful mixed fiber bits) and an idea came to mind of how I could use them. I could make a skein of art yarn to wear as a hank with my witchy outfit! So that's just what I'm doing! Here are all of my ingredients for the newest addition to the fiber spirits! I'll keep y'all posted as I spin!
