Enticing though the spinning wheel is, the presence of all of that nicely skeined, very fresh yarn was too much to overcome. So I started knitting a hat.



The yarn, although great fun to spin, turned out to be colors that I’m really, really not going to wear. And I couldn’t think of anyone who likes bright pink and bright purple and bright yellow (any of you whom I know in real life who like that combination of colors, speak fast). So it’s going to be a couple of things for Dulaan.

This whole “spinning fast enough to go from roving to half a hat in less than a week” thing is really cool.
