12. But what do I do with it?

As per my last post, I am a spinner. Unfortunately I do not seem to be a handspun knitter. I just can never find the right pattern for my yarns. I do quite often cast on, knit for a (long) while, and then frog. This can leave the yarn looking quite interesting. When you knit, you are making loops and pulling more loops through those, this leaves you with lots and lots of loops. When you frog something that has been sitting for a while, it can get the memory of these loops, so in a skein it's just a whole bunch of loops. It looks like a mess, but to me, it looks beautiful. I just wish that I could find something to knit with this yarn. Maybe a cowl. Maybe....

-Cheers and happy knitting!
