Cancelled meeting, and its consequences...

What a does a knitter do when a "knitworthy" (that is determined along very strict rules, but more about that in a later post) family member, or friend has a birthday 8or other presentgiving event) coming up... Of course, knit something, right? But what if that friend is a knitter herself... what is there what she can't make for herself??
If you are, beside being a knitter also a spinner the answe is of course, YARN, even if you have less time than it would think what color, not to mention actually spin the thing... But when said person cancells the meeting, you can say threateningly "well what can I do... But there will be consequences", but all the while happily grinning, because you know that insted of a table of chocolate there will be actual present next time...
Diving into the stash and coming up with something that suits the target person was not that difficult...
On the other hand spinning it thicker than the usual laceweight took more attention..
The result is a more or less fingering weight... I don't remember the exact length, but somewhere around 360-400 meters 2 ply, spun from 100 grams of south american wool, my own handdyed.
