from the beginning...
A completed handspun project - using my own first bits. I used Pigeonroof Studios BFL in Chard and Persimmon. I think I got somewhere in the neighborhood of 120 yards per skein. I cast on 175 stitches on #9 and went until I ran out. Just for fun. I wasn't sure what to do with my little-ish skeins but have so been jonesing for a use for my very own handspun. Oh there are little twisties here and there, the twist is "meh" but I am in love with my scarf, because "I made that". I have even cast another little project with some more handspun. It is so fun to knit with.
I have been on hiatus from my wheel since our vacation but this quick little project has me wanting to have a little tryst with my Lendrum soon. I still have some holiday knitting to do - but I really hope me and my "honey" will be spinning into the New Year.
And just to make the desire to spin even more unbearable, I got my first installment of Funky Carolina's Fiber Club - sheesh, fabulous. And then Pigeonroof is opening up her first fiber club ever - (and a sock club and a luminosity project club...) tonight, my fingers and toes are crossed because I might be stalking if I can manage to stay awake.
I'm a bit tired because all of our new snow in Wisconsin had me up in the night worried about driving in it, I'm a snow-driving-pansy. Um, and I have 4-wheel drive - I know, the nerve!
