Knitting helps ease the pain

My hip is still bugging me. Which means, I'm still taking it easy on the spinning. The good news is, the knitting has been cranked up to warp speed!!!!!

Have you seen the new Brooklyn tweed pattern Turn A Square? First thing I thought... wow!!! Totally fun for handspun! And look, I was right!!!

Instant gratification! I used up the leftovers of my Noro Cash Iroha from my bolero, and some of my handspun, Sheknitigans Take a Hike, shown here in its pre-knitted glory :

This hat is the perfect answer to the question 'What can I do with a small skein of handspun?' because you literally need 50 yards or less! I'm going to use this for a shop sample for next months booth show and then its all MIIIIIIIINE. I hope. ;)

And I finished Ms. Marigold. I will talk about that later though.
