I recently had occasion to spin some beautiful blue fiber comprised of Merino wool and Bamboo. It was so lovely to spin. I wanted a fairly fine yarn so that when plied, would be something close to dk weight.
After the yarn was spun, set and dry, I began to knit a lovely hat with a scalloped lace edge and a beautiful star closure at the crown. :) I spun and knitted this hat for my cousin. She is going through a rough time as she is receiving chemotherapy. Her mood is wonderful. I only see what she posts on Facebook-I'm 500 miles away. But I haven't 'heard' her complain once. I have witnessed other people I know go through the process of chemotherapy and it is debilitating. She has every reason to be crabby and complaining. God bless her, she is cheerful and positive.
I hope to be like her when I grow up.
This is the lovely hat I made for her. I hope she likes it.
Hopefully. she won't catch my blog and see this. But if she does, *Surprise*! :)
