the program was 'batts to hats' the concept was simple..... take roving, spin roving, knit a hat.... in less than two hours.
i love a challenge. i'm the first in line. often i forget to even ask what the project is. so this was up my alley. the dilemma arrived late yesterday afternoon when my partner (and fiber provider) was unable to participate. hmmmmm, what to do? i already had my pattern in mind, utensils packed, so i scurried around and found some wool. i had a ball of cottswold in blue jeans, and a ball of leister longwool in white. i decided that if i spun these together it would make a thick, bulky single that i could easily and quickly knit. now i just needed to
at the signal to start, we were off, spinning like we'd never spun before.
the competition continued until the timer rang. seven hats, seven. each uniquely different and wonderful in what they represented. working with a partner, getting the job done.
