Fiber Friday - Zitron Unikat
I'm not sure what this yarn will end up being. Right now it's sitting in a plastic bag in the crap room. (The crap room is what my husband calls it; I prefer craft room or work room.) I really want to knit something up with this yarn to see how it turns out. I love the rich almost velvety look and feel of the colors.
I've been trying to decide if I should go with a scarf and hat type combo outfit, maybe even for the afore mentioned husband. Or maybe he'd like a pair of those felted clogs to wear around the house this winter. The colors seem manly enough I suppose.
I've also though about knitting him some mittens. He 's the one that walks the dog the most. In the winter time, he bundles up like we live in Minnesota when he goes out with the dog - so maybe he'd like some mittens. When my mom visited recently she had a pair of thrummed mittens with her that she knit and he was impressed with those. I could try that with this yarn; I'd just need a little fiber.
I've got four skeins of this yarn; that ends up being about 700 yards of a heavy worsted weight yarn. So I've got enough for a nice sized project or a couple of small ones. I'm leaning to the scarf and hat combo mainly because I can use it if he decides not to wear it. But I suppose the first thing I need to do is ask him if he even likes the colors. Cause if he doesn't; I'll make something for myself.
