spinster

I have been completely taken in by the spinning bug. Good grief, it's positively crazy but I think that collecting roving has become more fun for me than collectiong yarn - gasp - I know.

funky carolina really
funky carolina "really" bfl

funky carolina bomb
funky carolina "bomb" superwash bfl

So addictive.

The hardest part may be actually choosing a project. I like looking at the finished yarn so much. I think Bomb will be some fingerless mitts and Really shall be a hat - what do you think? stay tuned!

They are gorgeous! But I would make "really" into mitts and "bomb" into a hat...but that's just me. Beautiful!! Can't wait to see what you do with them. I have such a hard time knitting much from my handspun, besides socks.

Yeah, I would have to agree about the addictiveness. The good part is it takes longer to get to a useable product, theoretically resulting in less money spent. Right? :)

I'm so happy to see your "Bomb" spun up and I think fingerless gloves are the perfect finished product. "Really" is gorgeous as well!

Hi Peaknit,

I am looking for a site that sells beautiful wooden buttons. I thought I found the site through a link on your blog. Does that ring a bell? I'm actually not sure where I found the link. If you (or any of your readers) know of a place for great wooden buttons would you let me know? Thanks.
