Moxie

When I saw this colorway for the first time I was sure to skip it. Then my girls got involved and begged for it. Since I don’t need much persuasion to get more fiber I gave in.

My original plan was to spin it into fingering weight and knit two pairs of socks, or alternatively make some kind of leg warmers (imitate knee high socks without the foot part since my girl’s feet keep growing like crazy. )

Well, planning is good, but doesn’t always work. Over (very short) time, my spinning got so thin I was afraid my yarn would not be thick enough for socks. Yeah, wishful thinking in this case. I paid so much attention to spinning decently thick singles that I ended up with about worsted weight yarn.

Time to redo my plans. Legwarmers would still work, but might be too warm to wear in school all day long. Soooooo, since winter made its comeback today (it’s snowing and snowing on April 23), I am in mood for some mittens. I am thinking flip tops. That should make the girls excited enough to forget my failed promise of socks.
