It first looked like this:
And it became socks for Mag:
But there were issues with that batch of spinning. I won’t go into the details, and I did end up with a cutie pair of bitty socks, but we’ll just say there was a fight to the death with that first four ounces of fiber. I did not win.
That was a while ago (October?), and I still had another four ounces of fiber to play with. So on Saturday while the kids played outside with their father in some unseasonably warm weather, I got to it.
I guess I was going for worsted, but it came out rather bulky. I still feel clueless about this whole spinning thing. I enjoy doing it, I can make nice yarn, but I know there’s so much more to learn. I’m just going to keep practicing and I think I’ll join the local spinning guild.
There is about 100 yards there and I love it unreasonably. This morning it is finally dry, and it’s already on the pins.
Details: BFL Wool Top from Adrian at Hello Yarn, color ‘Scrappy’.
All I can think about is the rockin’ hat I’m going to make with this handspun, but I should be writing Christmas cards…baking the gingerbread…cleaning the house…you know how it is! Off to knit!
