When I was at SPA a couple of weeks ago I met Kelly. She is a friend of Julia’s and now, by extension and familiarity, a friend of mine. And she offered up one of my favorite quotes of the weekend.
You see, someone watching me spinning said, “What are you going to make with that?” (They meant what was I going to knit with the yarn I was spinning.) And I said, “I dunno.” (I’m a wonder with words, aren’t I?) It was then that Kelly said to me, “just say what I always say: I made yarn. Isn’t that enough?”
I love it. Because, while I do love knitting with my handspun, sometimes it’s just enough to have made yarn. Of course, you have to say it with a bit of a snarky attitude to get the right effect. I’m pretty good at the snark thing, you know. And so . . .
I made singles.
