A milestone – I finally wound some of my handspun into a ball!
This was some of the “early collection”, all done on my drop spindle. It’s really quite underplied, but the colours are GORGEOUS. I adore the knitted fabric, and hey, at least it’s balanced. This was my first time knitting with my handspun! I didn’t know much about spinning when I did this stuff, so it isn’t as lofty as I think I could make it now (plus that plying thing), but I think it’s beautiful.
Currently blocking on my floor (although it’s probably dry by now):
It’s Fiber Trends’ Shoalwater Shawl, knit in Hand Maiden Lace Silk for lettuce knit. It’s finally done! And it looks marvelous all blocked out. All that in only 1 skein – it’s about 70″ across the top.
