I was feeling tired, and under pressure and as if I was never going to be inspired by anything again. And all it took was a little knitting and some time to just sit. Well, that and finished project.
I do have to even ends of that messy fringe and attach it to make the loop, but the knitting is done.
I was just using up yarns that looked nice together. There isn't a pattern really. I just cast on 300 stitches and went. I am much less in love with the fringe. Not going to do that again. I could have cast off anytime really, but yesterday I was inspired.
It occurred to me, that yarns like this, may look wonderful in a Wurm hat. It has the right kind of squishines, perhaps saggieness is a better word, to work with this mix of yarns and weights, so long as I keep the gauge the same, it would make a really fine addition and complete the set.
I didn't know I was making a 'set'. Everything changed and that is all to the good.
Updated to add the yarn information.
Starting at the large blue ball, A Lang soft single that is discontinued, name long forgotten.

the very bottom ball, a Fleece Artist sock yarn but I am not sure which one
the delicate blue, Schulana Angora ( is this the one?) very soft and delicate
