Impromptu Inspiration

My latest spinning project is some very green wool. My wheel is upstairs, next to a window that looks over the back yard. We’ve had a lot of rain lately, so my view is very green too.

This morning after washing the finished yarn, I put a wooden drying rack in the back yard. Then attached the skeins with some very old, beaded ponytail holders.

This was not my idea, but after seeing it on a Ravelry post, I went looking for these beaded things in my dresser, wondering if I’d thrown them away. I used them a lot when I was younger, but eventually abandoned them for other, less conspicuous  hair elastics. I found quite a cache of them, in a rainbow of colors, amongst a jumble of scrunchies and headbands.

After hanging up the yarn, I stood on the deck, looking at the green all around me, with bits of red, and knew what to call that green yarn.

Pesky thing, inspiration.
