When in doubt try other things

I’m sure this will sound like a lot of blather. I’ve been having a horrible time knitting lately, everything I tried would end up horribly wrong within a few rows.

So I tried crochet:

And I tried spinning:

corriedale handspun
100g of Corriedale Top in a light grey and burgundy. Plyed to make a marled yarn.
Approx 50yds of a super bulky

I’m halfway through the next 100g of corriedale as well, I’m working on getting thinner singles:

I also bought some roving, from woolgatherings.etsy.com:

woolgatherings - 100% bfl

woolgatherings - mixed bfl

You’ll notice that these all worked. Summer is a horrible time for knitting though, and that is frustrating.
