Best of Both Worlds

Lately I have been into knitting more than spinning.  Usually knitting is a process and spinning seems to be for a project but Finishupitis mixed with Startitis (see the Yarn Harlot for definitions) have confuddled my circuits.
A lot of projects  have been completed (see previous posting) and several new designs are started.  Until I know where the designs are going I can't really show them to you which puts a crimp in the sharing of the excitement while making them.  But I just might cheat a wee little bit.

The two diseases got me combining spinning with the already done feature of ready made yarn.

I love Blue Lagoon and even though I thunk it up last summer lately, right now, it is a color that perks me up amid all the white and grey and dark brown and ice.

So I spun up a thin single of  blue Lagoon Polwarth and paired it with some Woody Blue Lagoon. Now I'm knitting it into a pair of socks for moi using the Bare Bones pattern.


I also had a single of some mostly purpley Blueberry Patch that I paired with Blue Lagoon Woody to make the newest hat prototype.  I just knit with 2 strands held together making a heavy worsted weight yarn on size 8 needles.
It works for me, at least for now.
