Ooh! A new (old) project!

So, last week I cleaned out my storage unit and moved into a pod. There’s a story there, but let’s put a pin in it to talk about a WIP.

I am so excited about doing Tour de Fleece this year. It’s been a few years since I’ve done it and I have a backlog of roving and I’m so excited to do some of that kind of creating. So excited. I knew that I was going to be cleaning out my storage unit prior to the beginning of the tour and that I would have a chance to pull things out of storage to spin. I found a bag that had roving in it and brought it home without even looking through it.

Roving from Shetland Sheep. Look how beautiful it is

When I got it home, I went through the bag and found a project bag. I was excited to find it, because it is a cute bag. But, then I realized there was something in it. A project. There was a project in my project bag.

Oh, just some lace I had lying around

So, hot on the heels of finishing the boneyard bandana, I have a new (old) lace project. The yarn I used here is handspun shetland wool. I’m pretty sure I didn’t spin this. I think it was spun by Joy Killjoy, the ’52 Spitfire. I love the color. It’s such a lovely natural color. I don’t know what I’m going to do about the hole at the top, though. (You can’t see it very well in the picture, but it’s towards the top). Part of me thinks I’m going to keep going with the pattern (I’m pretty sure its Deborah Frank’s Dark Passenger and that I created a ravelry project for it when I started the shawl.) and then I’m going to darn the hole closed. But, part of me wants to frog it all and start something new.

What would you do?
